TASTING NOTES: It is the first ever Habanos Gran Reserva elaborated with the best
cuban tobacco leaves from San Juan y MartÃnez and San Luis harvested
in 2003, and carefully aged for five 5 years before reaching the cigar
*The eagerly awaited Cohiba Gran Reserva reaches finally the most
select markets in the World.
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 â€œDenominacion de Origen Protegidaâ€ (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 CohibaÂ´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 journalistsâ€™, smokersâ€™ and expertsâ€™ opinions,
which have given the maximum ratings to this first Habanos Gran Reserva,
making of it a collectible item extremely difficult to find.
