Spotlight Brand: Cohiba Black

Cohiba Black

Come to the Darkside of Cohiba.

With a dark maduro wrapper and an aged Dominican Piloto binder, Cohiba Black offers a rich and complex flavor that appeals to even the most discerning aficionado.

As perhaps the most recognized name in cigars worldwide, Cohiba has been an icon for what many consider to be “the best.” Debuting in Cuba shortly after Castro came to power, Cohiba cigars were made from the country's top 1% of leaves harvested, and the cigars were reserved for diplomatic gifts and government VIPs. In fact, speculation exists the brand was initially made for Fidel Castro himself, who considers the blend his favorite.

Cohiba Black was introduced at the 2006 RTDA show in Las Vegas. As one of the most popular super premiums, Cohiba Black follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, Cohiba Red Dot, which is also made in the Dominican Republic. The cigar features a multi-country blend with a rich and dark Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. However, perhaps more exciting than the oily wrapper is the filler, which encompasses leaves from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. Cohiba Black is then finished with an enticing Dominican Piloto binder that has been aging for more than three years in tercios. Don't miss your chance to try on of Cohiba's finest creations.

Q & A: The Areas of the Tongue

Q.
Some cigars are referred to as “well balanced” or “well rounded”. What does that mean and how can you tell?

A.
Cigar smoke affects the tongue causing certain sensations and stimulations on the palate. To understand the flavor and texture of a cigars smoke, it is important to understand how the tongue works to be able to pinpoint the areas that stimulate those different sensations.
