Cohiba tells it will welcome its first full-time new collection since 2020 with Cohiba Riviera, a six-region blend that features the very best of Central American tobacco and is named after the lush San Andrés Tuxtla Valley that bore the cigar’s wrapper.

Cohiba Riviera marks the first time a Mexican San Andrés wrapper has been used in a Cohiba blend and is the first box-pressed offering from the brand.

Cohiba Riviera will ship to retailers in May. And for those attending this Kentucky Derby event where Bourbon expert Tom Fischer will be appearing with Sean Williams and Jason Brauner, you’ll get a chance to try the new cigar – more details here.

Cohiba Riviera Robusto (5” x 52); SRP per cigar $19.99; 20 cigars per box
Cohiba Riviera Toro (6.5” x 52); SRP per cigar $21.99; 20 cigars per box
Cohiba Riviera Perfecto (6” x 60); SRP per cigar $23.99; 10 cigars per box

Cohiba Riviera Cigar

The three-cigar collection is handcrafted in Nicaragua at STG Estelí.

WRAPPER: The Mexican San Andrés wrapper
BINDER: Honduran-grown Connecticut binder
FILLER: Filler tobaccos that include proprietary Honduran Jamastran and Honduran La Entrada, as well as Nicaraguan Condega and Nicaraguan Estelí.

Cohiba Brand Ambassador Sean Williams tells, “Cohiba Riviera is a bold yet balanced blend of the most exceptional tobaccos from Nicaragua with exclusively-grown tobaccos from Honduras. Medium-to-full bodied and adorned with a delectable wrapper from Mexico, Riviera is an elegant selection offering notes of dark chocolate and coffee bean with a
hint of leather and subtle cream on the finish.”

“The experience of Cohiba Riviera is rich and rewarding and befitting of Cohiba’s status as an ultra-premium cigar brand,” noted Williams.
