Cohiba, Fidel Castros preferred brand, was created in 1966 as Havanas premier brand for diplomatic purposes.
Since 1982, it was offered to the public in three sizes: Lanceros, Coronas Especiales and Panetelas. In 1989, three more sizes were added to complete the classic line namely: Esplendidos, Robustos and Exquisitos.
In 1992, the following five sizes were further made in order to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Cuba in 1492: Siglo I, II, III, IV and V.
Length: 4 7/8" Ring Gauge: 50
Probably best sized Cohiba. An excellent after luncheon cigar for a smoker capable of appreciating a great deal of flavour. Easy to smoke and almost too rich but doesn't leave a lasting aroma. Woody, spicy, opulent coffee and honey flavours.
