The Cohiba 1966 LE 2011 was first released in 2011 as a limited edition to commemorate Cohiba’s 45th anniversary. Wrapped in a heady dark brown leaf and giving off a bouquet of eclectic aromas, it is a feast for all senses.
This 6½ inch 2011 limited edition has a 52 ring gauge and is wrapped in a richly dark Cuban tobacco leaf. With its veined bind and special-edition golden band below its pigtail cap, this cigar continues to pay admirable homage to the world-class Cohiba brand.
Smoking a Cohiba 1966 LE 2011
Wrapped in a darker leaf of tobacco plant than most Cohiba cigars, with a svelte bind wound tightly into a pigtail cap, this is what a high-class cigar should look like.
Marrying a smooth, consistent draw with a deep espresso taste, the 1966 builds in intensity throughout. You’ll taste undertones of creaminess, earthy leather, and pangs of sweeter natural chocolate.
The draw and burn are notably smooth, while the construction of the 1966 remains coherent and elegant through its long smoking cycle. Aromas from the smoke are rich, and you can taste the undertones of light and simple grassiness.

It can be hard to resist the urge to smoke such a simple and classy cigar immediately. And you will smoke one. But the rest can age, to be savored on special occasions.
