Episode 440: Cohiba Nicaragua


BACKGROUND: The Dominican Cohiba, which is owned an operated by a different company than the Cuban version, has built its own impressive portfolio over the years and continues to show innovations. They recently expanded their horizons and for the first time have a cigar that was blended and handcrafted entirely in Nicaragua. This feat was accomplished with the release of the Cohiba Nicaragua.


The showpiece of the cigar is the wrapper, a Sun Grown Colorado Oscuro from Honduras. The blend includes Nicaraguan long-fillers from Jalapa and Esteli bound together inside a Nicaraguan binder also from Jalapa.

The Cohiba Nicaragua comes in 4 sizes and the one I’m featuring today is the 5-inch by 50 ring gauge Robusto.
