Cohiba is the Habanos flagship, and the most prestigious brand in the tobacco world.

Since then, its production has taken place in the prestigious ¨El Laguito¨ factory, in Havana, Cuba.

Beginning in 1982, the year in which the brand was introduced abroad, Cohiba has been available in limited quantities for connoisseurs worldwide to enjoy.

The name “Cohiba” is an old word used by the Taíno Indians, the original inhabitants of the island, to describe the rolled tobacco leaves they smoked, which Christopher Columbus saw for the first time in Cuba in 1492. Cohiba is, subsequently considered, the first name for tobacco.

The Línea 1492 was launched in 1992 to commemorate the 5th Centenary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival on the island. The Maduro 5 line was introduced in 2007 with 3 new vitolas. In 2010 Cohiba Behike, the most exclusive Cohiba line was introduced.
