Cohiba will be rolling out its first cigar made here in the U.S. The Cohiba Serie M is a collaboration between General Cigar’s Cohiba brand and the family-owned El Titán de Bronze cigar factory, located in Miami’s Little Havana District. This limited edition cigar is crafted by Cuban expatriate cigarmakers.
Sean Williams, Cohiba’s brand ambassador, commented: “Cohiba Serie M has been a passion project for all of us on the Cohiba team. To take a brand as iconic as Cohiba and make a cigar in the U.S. in collaboration with a boutique, family-owned factory has been an honor for all of us. Serie M gives a nod to our long-standing commitment to craftsmanship, our focus on innovation and alludes to the exciting releases that we are planning in the future.”
Sandy Cobas, owner of El Titán de Bronze, added: “I am honored that we were chosen to craft the first American-made Cohiba cigars. For this important collaboration, we created a cigar using only the most exquisite tobacco, working together with the Cohiba team at General Cigar. Unlike in other countries where cigar makers work in teams, our cigarmakers at El Titán de Bronze personally create each cigar from start to finish, and we put their name on every single box they make. Our team of rollers have achieved the highest skill level that a cigarmaker can achieve, with only a select few having the dexterity and artistry required to meet our stringent qualifications. Every cigar represents the very best of each of our rollers and is an opportunity for us to share their artistry with the entire country. The buzz for Cohiba Serie M is building in Miami and based on what I’m seeing, these cigars will sell out as soon as they hit the cigar shops.”
Cohiba Serie M is crafted using old-world techniques and features a double binder, closed foot and triple cap with a signature fan. General Cigar describes the Cohiba Serie M as a medium-to-full-bodied cigar that’s rich, creamy, and bold, layered with subtle spice notes and nuances of roasted coffee beans. The blend is comprised of aged tobaccos enveloped in a lustrous Nicaraguan corojo wrapper, a first for the Cojiba brand. The binder is Nicaraguan and the blend also has hand-selected Nicaraguan Jalapa and Esteli and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos.
Cohiba Serie M will be presented as a 6 x 52 Toro, available in 10-count boxes for $299.90 per box or $29.99 per cigar. This cigar will be available in stores beginning April 12, 2021, with only 5,000 boxes being released.
