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.
