General Cigar Co.’s American-made Cohiba line gets its second vitola!
It measures 6 1/2 x 48 and like the original toro size, uses a Nicaraguan corojo wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos that include Dominican piloto cubano as well as Nicaraguan tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. It will be limited to 5,000 boxes of 10 cigars.
“Since its debut a year ago, Cohiba Serie M has been a resounding success,” said Sean Williams, brand ambassador for Cohiba, in a press release. “We’ve received high praise from cigar media, shop owners and cigar lovers who have called Serie M one of the most exciting Cohiba blends they have ever smoked. Together with Sandy Cobas (owner of El Titán de Bronze) and her team, we’re proud to release the blend in a new size, giving cigar connoisseurs another opportunity to experience the artistry of Serie M.”
It is the first Cohiba to be made in the U.S., the first Cohiba to use a Nicaraguan wrapper, as well as the first time that General Cigar Co.—one of the largest cigar companies in the world—was working with El Titan de Bronze, a small factory in Miami.
Note: The pictures used show the Cohiba Serie M Toro, not the Corona Gorda size.
