Cohiba C8, an exceptional and stylishly-presented expression is set to take the jet set to new heights this holiday season.
Cohiba C8 is a masterpiece of a cigar. Crafted of a silky, lustrous Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper with nearly imperceptible veins, and a wrapper-quality Connecticut Broadleaf binder, the story of Cohiba C8 is perhaps best told through its profoundly aged blend.
The narrative begins with tercios made of Royal Palm bark and extends to special finishing in Spanish Sherry casks where the natural characteristics of each leaf of the blend were enhanced to the point of perfection. Blending experts at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR, painstakingly identified exceptional vintage years and further selected each bale and each leaf by hand for inclusion in C8. The blend is comprised of Piloto Cubano (1995); Honduran Olancho San Agustin (2002); Honduran (La Entrada (2011); Nicaraguan Estelí (2011) and Nicaraguan Esteli (2014), and Honduran Jamastran (2014).
This is a robust cigar and its refinement is evident at the light and continues as the experience unfolds. Layers of earth, nuts and wood are balanced with a hint of caramel and whisper of sweetness. The finish cascades to light spice and pepper.
Master artisans crafted Cohiba C8, resulting in meticulous construction.
This stunning Double Corona (7.25” x 54) cigar is housed in a sleek, soft-touch red and matte silver box containing ten cigars. C8 is presented in a briefcase containing an ST Dupont cutter and lighter, for everything the well-heeled cigar smoker needs in one modern, clean-lined accoutrement. Only 50 Cohiba C8 travel sets have been created, for sale at U.S. Duty Free locations and cigar shops, beginning this week.
This stunning release will be available for a suggested retail price of $2,499.99.
