Cohiba Siglo V Cigar



2 in stock


Cohiba Siglo V perhaps a size that is not at the height of fashion these days. Nevertheless the 8-9-8, as it's known, is one of Cuba's definitive models. Fulfilling in every way.

The Cohiba Línea 1492 range was initially unveiled at a reception held at the Captain General's Palace in Havana on November 4th, 1992. This event coincided with a Festival commemorating the 500th Anniversary of Christopher Columbus's discovery of the New World.

Originally comprising five sizes—Siglo I, II, III, IV, and V—before the addition of the VI in 2002, the Linea 1492 was specifically introduced to honour Columbus's milestone. Each Siglo (meaning 'Century' in Spanish) pays tribute to one of the five subsequent centuries following the discovery.

Characterized as medium-flavoured, the Linea 1492 remains the lightest-flavoured line within the Cohiba brand.

The Cohiba Siglo V, the first section of the cigar you get a mild creamy sweetness, which is almost floral, leading to bean and mocha flavours throughout the rest of the cigar.

The leaves for Cohiba cigars are the “selection of the selection” from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone.

Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba’s fillers leaves, the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba.

In 1992 five new sizes to create the Linea 1492 to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in Cuba before one further size, the iconic Siglo VI, was added in 2002.
