The first American-made Cohiba will head to stores next week.
General Cigar Co. has announced that the Cohiba Serie M will begin shipping to stores on April 12. It measures 6 x 52—with a fantail cap and closed foot—and uses a Nicaraguan corojo wrapper, another first for Cohiba. Filler tobaccos include Dominican piloto cubano, Nicaraguan Estelí and Nicaraguan Jalapa; the binder is also from Nicaragua.
The Serie M is being produced at El Titan de Bronze in Miami.
MSRP is set at $29.99 per cigar and it is limited to 5,000 boxes of 10 cigars.
“I am honored that we were chosen to craft the first American-made Cohiba cigars,” said Sandy Cobas, owner of El Titan de Bronze, in a press release. “For this important collaboration, we created a cigar using only the most exquisite tobacco, working together with the Cohiba team at General Cigar. Unlike in other countries where cigar makers work in teams, our cigarmakers at El Titán de Bronze personally create each cigar from start to finish, and we put their name on every single box they make.”
This is the first time General Cigar Co. has worked with El Titan de Bronze.
