COHIBA 50 ANIVERSARIO
This was the most exclusive and luxurious launch of the event, marking the 50th anniversary of the Cohiba brand. The Special Edition Cohiba 50 Aniversario introduces a 60 ring gauge to the range of sizes of Habanos for the very first time with a unique format that has been especially designed for this special celebration of the brand.
The 2,500 Habanos in this edition have been made with the flavours that have been most characteristic of the brand over its five decades of existence, featuring a medium to full strength flavour. Following Cohiba tradition, the leaves used in producing the Cohiba 50 Aniversario have been meticulously selected from the best fields—vegas de Primera—in the tobaccogrowing districts of San Juan y Martínez and San Luis in Vuelta Abajo. The Seco and Ligero leaves of its blend have also undergone additional fermentation in casks.
The Cohiba 50 Aniversario humidor is full of new ideas and fine detailing. The Habanos it contains have had a beautiful primary band designed in black and gold with the 50th anniversary seal, in which some characteristic elements from Cohiba, such as the grid, have been rein- terpreted in an innovative way. Each of these bands, made with painstaking printing techniques, is individually numbered for authenticity.
This commemorative edition is presented in an exclusive luxury cabinet humidor, with production limited to only 50 units. The case is made of different precious woods, including Makassar ebony, sycamore and Guarea Cedrata or Scented Guarea. The external marquetry decorating its doors is the result of a long process of experimentation, in which carefully selected authentic “ligero” Vuelta Abajo* leaves were coated with 24-carat gold leaf. This delicate work, carried out by expert Parisian artisans, offers a new and captivating vision of the leaves of the finest tobacco in the world.
