Cohiba is the most prestigious Habanos brand in the world and is as well the first name given to tobacco. When Christopher Columbus arrived in Cuba in 1492, he saw that the Taino Indians, inhabitants of these lands, used to light some rolled leaves which they called “Cohiba” and which they later smoked following a ritual. As registered in the chronicles and travel diaries, that ceremony was conducted by a highly respected person called “Behike”.
After many years of work Cohiba Behike is finally in the markets starting April 2010. Considered “Cohiba’s best kept secret” Cohiba Behike will be produced each year with the best Cuban tobacco coming from San Juan y Martínez and San Luis inside the Vuelta Abajo* Region in extremely limited quantities in the prestigious “El Laguito” factory. Its blend incorporates for the first time the “Medio Tiempo”, a leaf that attributes to the Habano exceptional character and flavor.
The Cohiba and Behike limited edition a unique reference for premium cigar aficionados
Following a past collaboration with Cohiba in 2003, S.T. Dupont is proud to sign a new one with the brand.This unique limited Edition celebrates what is probably the most famous and exclusive premium cigar brand in the world, Cohiba. Cohiba is the first name given by Cuban Aboriginal people to the lit tobacco leaves. In 1966, exquisite Habanos, originally reserved for Fidel Castro, were named Cohiba. At the beginning Cohiba cigars were only seen outside Cuba as gifts for heads of states and visiting diplomats.
Since 1982 Cohiba has been available in limited quantities to the open market.Nowadays, Cohiba offers 4 different lines, such as Línea Clasica, Línea 1492, Maduro 5 and the most exclusive Cohiba Behike. They all have one thing in common: Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba’s filler leaves, the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba.
