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.
COHIBA SIGLO VI
Length: 5 7/8" Ring Gauge: 52
Arguably the best cigar to have come out of Cuba since the Millennium the Cohiba Siglo VI has a totally unique size or vitola known as the “Canonazo” or canon reserved solely for this prince of Cohibas. Since it was launched in the summer of 2003 it has become “the” cigar with which to celebrate life by virtue of its awesome appeal. It is positively “moor-ish”. Stronger than a regular Siglo series with an almost peppery overtone. The flavour and strength of the cigar aligned to its superb combustion and size impart a sense of luxury. One is savouring Cuban tobacco at its very best with all the subtle nuance of taste and aroma for which Havanas are famous. By general consensus worth every penny one pays for the privilege!
