Null

Luxury cigar smokers will soon have the chance to own one of the premium cigar category’s most treasured blends, thanks to the debut of two new frontmarks from the coveted Cohiba Edición Diamante collection.

Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for Cohiba remarked, “Cohiba Edición Diamante made a big splash at the 2011 IPCPR show. Discriminating smokers spent thousands of dollars for the privilege of possessing the rare Cohibas. Due to overwhelming demand, we are releasing an extremely limited allotment of two phenomenal new frontmarks.”

Enrobed in a precious Cameroon wrapper tobacco from the 1980 crop, Cohiba Edición Diamante boasts one of the most extraordinary leaves ever cultivated. In the past three decades since this outstanding tobacco was harvested, these rarified leaves have been nurtured and masterfully handcrafted.

To honor the well-balanced, refined taste of the 32-year-old wrapper, General Cigar’s team of cigar masters worked tirelessly to create the optimal blend for Cohiba Edición Diamante.  A proprietary Dominican Piloto Cubano blend bolsters the subtly complex taste of the elegant wrapper which enrobes an Indonesian Jember binder. To taste this cigar is to experience the art of cigar making at its finest: a fragrant aroma opens to a delightfully balanced smoke with nuances of cinnamon and toasted wood.

Created to celebrate the exceptionally rare wrapper, Cohiba Edición Diamante Robusto measures 5” x 50. The cigars are individually protected in wooden coffins and displayed in handcrafted mahogany boxes. Individual Robusto cigars can be acquired for a suggested retail price of $22.00, and will be sold at $220.00 for a ten-count box. Sister frontmark Cohiba Edición Diamante Toro is a 6” x 54 smoke which is encased in crystal. Each cigar will be available for a suggested retail price of $25.00. Cohiba connoisseurs can purchase a handsome mahogany box containing ten Toros for $250.00.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
