Cohiba Gran Reserva - new smokes from Havana
Cohiba Gran Reserva - the new line of ultra premium
The first Cuban cigars made with aged tobacco came out as Partagas Series D No.4 Reserva and the 5000 boxes made flew off the shelves. When they came out I was exited about the cigar and the project itself. Spanish influence in the marketing strategy of Habanos took its shares and the idea of Reserva cigars was just the first step in the new direction. Famous Spanish wines are available as “normal”, Reserva and Gran Reserva - and subsequently it was only a matter of time until Habanos would launch Gran Reserva cigars.

Within the past few days I have seen some controversial discussion about the market release of these new hot smokes. Some sources report they will be produced in a limited quantity of 5000 boxes but sources from the Cuban tobacco industry told me something different than that. According to my information the new Cohiba Gran Reserva is supposed to be a new line of cigars within the Cohiba brand. They shall be available in small quantities only - means they are not a limited one time production but shall be a regular cigar produced whenever tobacco of the according quality is available for production.
In any case there is something in the pipeline I consider as promising. Looking forward to our tasting samples now….
Happy smoking from
