About the Cigar
Cohiba C8 is a masterpiece of a cigar. Crafted of a silky, lustrous Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper with nearly imperceptible veins, and a wrapper-quality Connecticut Broadleaf binder, the story
of Cohiba C8 is perhaps best told through its profoundly aged blend.
The narrative begins with tercios made of Royal Palm bark and extends to special finishing in Spanish Sherry casks where the natural characteristics of each leaf of the blend were enhanced
to the point of perfection. Blending experts at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR, painstakingly identified exceptional vintage years and further selected each bale and each leaf
by hand for inclusion in C8.
The blend is comprised of the following:
Piloto Cubano (1995);
Honduran Olancho San Agustin (2002);
Honduran (La Entrada (2011);
Nicaraguan Estelí (2011) and Nicaraguan Esteli (2014), and Honduran Jamastran (2014).
Cohiba says this is a robust cigar and its refinement is evident at the light and continues as the experience
unfolds. Layers of earth, nuts and wood are balanced with a hint of caramel and whisper of sweetness. The finish cascades to light spice and pepper.
Master artisans crafted Cohiba C8, resulting in meticulous construction.
