It is the first ever Habanos Gran Reserva elaborated with the best cuban tobacco leaves from San Juan y Martínez and San Luis harvested in 2003, and carefully aged for five years before reaching the cigar rollers hands.
Habanos, S.A. is pleased to present the “Gran Reserva”, launched for the first time ever in “Cohiba“, the most prestigious premium cigar brand in the world.
This first ever Habanos Gran Reserva enhances the unique character of Habanos as a “Denominacion de Origen Protegida” (protected Denomination of origin). The Gran Reserva concept means the best of what Habanos has ever made. The best Cuban tobacco leaves harvested in 2003 have been selected, fermented and inspected for a long period of five years. All the leaves used to make up a Habano -the wrapper, the filler and the binder have undergone this meticulous 5 year process.
Those precious leaves, after five years of care, are then laid in the skilful hands of Cohiba´s expert Cuban cigar-rollers at “El Laguito” factory in order to create this exquisite Habano for the most distinguished smokers.
Furthermore, the emblematic vitola “Siglo VI” (girth 52 x 150mm length) has been chosen for the production of this first Habanos Gran Reserva.
Every part of the process respects the criteria that one would demand of such a unique product. From the careful process of fermentation using the best tobacco from San Juan, Martinez and San Luis, to the exquisite blend selection process supervised by 50 testers, all elements are checked to combine so as to respect the unique character of Cohiba.
Cohiba Gran Reserva is a small and numbered production, only 5.000 numbered cases containing 15 Siglo VI each.
At this stage the first Gran Reserva of Habanos already is a hit, taking into account journalists’, smokers’ and experts’ opinions, which have given the maximum ratings to this first Habanos Gran Reserva, making of it a collectible item extremely difficult to find.
