COHIBA TO LAUNCH NEW SIZE OF SERIE M.
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.
Cohiba Serie M Corona Gorda (6.5” x 48) will be available for a suggested retail price of $29.99 per cigar, and will be presented in 10-count boxes that sell for $299.90 apiece. The new frontmark will begin shipping to retailers on April 4, and just 5,000 boxes will be released.
Cohiba Brand Ambassador Sean Williams said, “Since its debut a year ago, Cohiba Serie M has been a resounding success. We’ve received high praise from cigar media, shop owners and cigar lovers who have called Serie M one of the most exciting Cohiba blends they have ever smoked. Together with Sandy Cobas (owner of El Titán de Bronze) and her team, we’re proud to release the blend in a new size, giving cigar connoisseurs another opportunity to experience the artistry of Serie M.”
Each Cohiba Serie M cigar is handmade by the Cuban expatriate cigarmakers of the El Titán de Bronze Cigar Factory in Miami’s Little Havana district.
Crafted according to old-world techniques and featuring a double binder, closed foot and triple cap with a signature fan, Cohiba Serie M is a medium-to-full-bodied cigar brimming with depth and character. Made with exquisite, aged tobaccos, the cigar is enveloped in a lustrous Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, a first for Cohiba. The binder is Nicaraguan and the blend features hand-selected Nicaraguan Jalapa and Esteli and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos.
The Cohiba Serie M smoking experience is rich, creamy and bold, layered with subtle spice notes and nuances of roasted coffee beans.
Cohiba Serie M debuted in April 2021, when 5,000 boxes of a 6” x 52 Toro were shipped to U.S. retailers.
