Cohiba Luxury Selection No. 2
Cohiba is proud to extend its critically-acclaimed Luxury Selection line with a new, limited edition vitola called No. 2.
The new pareo ships in October and is made with the identical, sublime blend of tobaccos that made Cohiba Luxury Selection a must-have cigar for connoisseurs. Robb Report agreed, and named Cohiba Luxury Selection to its coveted “Best of the Best” list for 2015.
The blend begins in a primitive, equatorial African forest, where generations of the Meerapfel family have painstakingly cultivated a particularly refined Cameroon wrapper called Meerapfel African Gold. This extraordinary leaf is the stuff of legend, for the blood red soil yields an extremely rare tobacco that is a sight to behold as it is to smoke. Aged for five years, this ethereal tobacco comprises the very foundation of Cohiba Luxury Selection.
The binder and filler leaves are hand-selected and carefully fermented in a proprietary process lasting four months before undergoing an additional six months of aging in rum barrels.
Upon emerging from the artisans hands, the freshly-rolled cigars rest in special aging cases sprinkled with cedar shavings and tobacco leaves to enhance their flavor. The result is a cigar of incomparable taste and aroma.
Given the rarity of tobaccos and the amount of time it takes to create Cohiba Luxury Selection, only 1,000 boxes of the No. 2 frontmark have been made.
