COHIBA - True enjoyment

Making cigar is tradition and much respected business, transferred from father to son in Cuba...

To create one quality cigar „Cohiba Esplendidos“ or „Cohiba Exquisitos“ which are some of the most expensive cigars in the world, you need top quality tobacco. You can get it in three shapes, in leafs, as chewing substance or as powder.

First leaves need to be sorted. Big ones are for decorative paper and small are for inside of the cigar. When cigars are made they go to humidor, for drying at least 6 months to 2 years.

There are 3 shapes of cigars. First is like standard cigar, but it is rounded on one side, like a hat. The other shape has pyramid hat and this kind is very rare because only few people know how to make it. Third kind has spindly shape and remind of torpedo.

Cigars, like wine, are getting better as they get older. If you don’t like sour taste, you should choose darker cigars with mild and sweet taste. For cigars you will need special kind of knife, to cut off the top. Quality cigars are contained in cases for better preservation.
