Cohiba begins with tobacco seeds that have been rigorously selected and bred by our team of agronomists. The tiny seeds are raised in climate controlled greenhouses. There, skilled farmers hand-select the very best leaves even before the seedlings are transplanted into the rich soil. This ensures that only the finest tobaccos comprise Cohiba cigars.
FIELDS OF GOLD
The plants are raised in nutrient-rich soil where our experts continually monitor the tobacco to ensure that each leaf bears the specific characteristics set forth for Cohiba.
TOUCHED BY MORE THAN 100 HANDS
Once the plants have reached maturity, our farmers handpick the tobacco with care, ensuring its unique attributes are preserved. Even with the great attention given to the crop, only a small portion of it will be deemed worthy of becoming Cohiba.
THE PRACTICE OF CURING
The leaves are hung in special wooden sheds where they are cured to express moisture and release natural sugars. During this process, our agronomists monitor the tobacco closely, as this is when the flavor of Cohiba begins to take shape.
Cohiba's signature aging and fermentation techniques are applied to the leaves. This includes a year of finishing in Dominican rum barrels to enhance the flavor and aroma of the tobacco. There is no other cigar company in the world that uses this method of aging, thus the flavor of Cohiba cannot be replicated.
THE WORK OF ARTISANS
Every Cohiba is handcrafted by master cigar makers selected for their expertise. According to a time-honored tradition, our artisans call upon the knowledge passed down to them to ensure that each and every Cohiba cigar is flawless, both in appearance and construction.
NOTHING TO CHANCE
After the cigar is rolled, and indeed during every step of the cigar making process, numerous tests are performed to ensure every Cohiba lives up to our exacting standards.
THE FINEST IS BORN
The work of our artisans is marked by an outpouring of skill and pride. The result is a cigar that defines the luxury smoking experience, one worthy of your finest moments.
