On July 1, 2021, Cohiba® will launch Weller by Cohiba, the first Cohiba cigar to be created expressly for pairing with a fine spirit.

Developed in partnership with Weller Bourbon, the limited edition Cohiba cigar was blended to complement Weller Bourbon, a rare and highly-coveted wheated bourbon prized by connoisseurs for its sophisticated, moderately sweet taste and intensely smooth finish.

Cohiba Brand Ambassador Sean Williams said, “We blended Weller by Cohiba to be the ultimate cigar for spirits connoisseurs. The experience is rich and layered, imparting notes of cocoa, espresso and leather on the palate before cascading to a luxurious finish. While the depth and complexity of this cigar make it the ideal choice for pairing with your favorite spirit, Weller by Cohiba is equally as extraordinary when savored on its own.”

Dressed in a hearty, full-bodied Honduran San Agustin Ligero wrapper and bound with Connecticut Havano Medio Tiempo, the blend is made with hand-selected tobaccos from Esteli and the remote volcanic island of Ometepe in  Nicaragua.

Weller by Cohiba is a limited edition release. Cohiba will not disclose the number of cigars being produced by the artisans at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR.

The blend will be launched in one size, a 5.5” x 50 Robusto featuring Cohiba and Weller Bourbon branding elements and presented in an elegant glass tube.

Weller by Cohiba will sell for a suggested retail price of $19.99 per cigar or $199.90 for a box containing ten cigars. This exquisite release will be available through fine cigar shops across the U.S. and begins shipping to select retailers today, on July 1.

Future collaborations between Cohiba and Weller Bourbon are currently being explored.

Weller by Cohiba is being released on the heels of Cohiba Serie M, a blend that debuted to rave reviews in April. The result of a collaboration between Cohiba and the family-owned El Titán de Bronze Cigar Factory, Cohiba Serie M is handcrafted in Miami’s Little Havana district.

About Weller Bourbon

The Weller Bourbon line is named after William Larue Weller, known for using wheat instead of rye in its bourbon mashbills, resulting in a softer, smoother taste.  In 1893 Julian P. “Pappy” Van Winkle Sr, was hired by W.L. Weller and Sons as a whiskey salesman.  Today the Weller and Van Winkle brands are joined again at Buffalo Trace Distillery.  The Weller lineup includes W.L. Weller Antique, W.L. Weller Special Reserve, W.L. Weller 12-Year-Old, William Larue Weller and other expressions.
