The name Cohiba comes from the Taino word meaning, quite rightly, ‘tobacco.’ The tobacco for this cigar comes from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba where it undergoes extra fermentation. The Cohiba brand has developed a cult status, often being given as a diplomatic gift. The cigar to try is the Cohiba Behike, which has a very limited run, and is therefore very exclusive. It’s made with a bit of Media Tiempo (the small leaves that grow at the top of of some Cuban tobacco plants) and the filler is fermented on its own. This gives the cigar an earth core, with a rich woody flavour. One of the most expensive cigars available these cigars are known for their intense, rich flavour.
Often considered the king of torpedos (a type of cigar shape), the Montecristo is one of the best-selling Cuban cigars in Pakistan. The Montecristo #2 is the most popular of the lot and is powerful from the start. It tantalises the palatte with hints of sweet spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and has a trademark tangy woody note. It maintains a creamy feel all the way and is great option for those who don’t smoke regularly as the flavours aren’t overwhelming.
Established in Havana in 1845, Partagas is among the oldest Cuban cigar brands. The Partagas Serie D is a true cigar connoisseur’s choice and has to be tried for its sweet natural tobacco, cedar and delicious woody finish and robust size. They are smooth cigars, making them ideal for any time of the day. They’re great for smoking now, but will taste even better after they’ve been aged in your humidor.
