Cohiba Majestuosos 1966 Set for Release in Switzerland


The long-awaited Cohiba Majestuosos 1966 humidors are set to go on sale in Switzerland on Friday, Dec. 1, according to an announcement from the Intertabak AG, which distributes Habanos S.A. products in the country.


The cigar was first presented at the Festival del Habano XVIII in Feb. 2016, and as with seemingly every new Habanos release, there was no set timeline for when it would arrive at retailers. Each humidor contains 20 cigars measuring 5 9/10 inches (150mm) long with a 58 ring gauge, a vitola called Majestuosos 58 that is a new addition to the Habanos portfolio.

The cigar was created as part of the 50th anniversary of the Cohiba brand, and joined the Cohiba 50 Aniversario, a limited edition 7 x 60 cigar that is presented in humidors featuring a 24-karat gold-plated tobacco leaf on the outside. Those humidors began arriving at distributors around the world in Dec. 2016.

Just 1966 of the Cohiba Majestuosos 1966 humidors are being produced; in Switzerland they are being sold for CHF 4,400, or US $4,484.

Additionally, Swiss La Casa del Habano retailers will also be offering the recently released Trinidad La Trova, a LCDH exclusive, beginning on Dec. 1.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
