Cohiba Cuban cigars have a long standing repute in this industry, mainly because of the fact that the products are of high quality and also because of historical personalities associated with them. The name of the company is derived from the word tobacco, as, in Spanish, it directly and literally translates from “cohiba”. These cigars are produced in Havana in the Pinar del Rio province in Cuba. Although the brand started out with only one factory, it has another factory as well which has led it to expand production and exports.
The Cohiba Behike carries 3 sizes: BHK 52, BHK 54 and BHK 56.
The production is extremely limited and exclusive. For the first time it incorporates the tobacco leaf “Medio tiempo” , which offers exceptional character and flavor. The filler is made up of the finest leaves from Volado, Seco and Ligero originating from the finest Vegas of San Juan y Martinez and San Luis. Also for the first time, it incorporates the Medio Tiempo that comes only from the two top leaves on sun-grown plants delivering exceptional character and taste.
Each Behike is donned with a band housing two holograms for security identification.
The quantities are limited due to the natural scarcity of the Medio Tiempo tobacco leaf.
The three heavy ring gauged vitolas are:
BHK 52: 52 ring gauge (20,64 mm) x 119mm in length Factory name: Laguito No 4.
BHK 54: 54 ring gauge (21,43 mm) x 144mm in length Factory name: Laguito No 5.
BHK 56: 56 ring gauge (22,22 mm) x 166mm in length Factory name: Laguito No 6.
These have never existed before. The blend and beautiful lacquered boxes are also a first.
