Discover the Luxury of a Cohiba: Your Ultimate Guide to Cohiba Cigars

Cohiba Cigars Guide

A 1-click collection of tasting notes and recommendations for the first name in cigars: Cohiba. Our Advisors have done the tasting to save you time and money–read their reviews to find your next favorite!

COHIBA–it’s a name that strikes temptation in the heart of any avid cigar smoker. Although the Cuban Cohiba cigars gave the name its fame, the Dominican-made Cohibas have become just as desirable as their Cuban cousins (and more diverse in their blending). In this guide, we’ll explain why.

Our Advisors have sampled and reviewed the entire lineup of Cohiba’s most popular collections sold in the U.S.: Cohiba Red Dot, Cohiba Black, Cohiba Nicaragua, and Cohiba Macassar.

The Meaning of Cohiba

Cohiba cigars have always seemed to be the brand that everyone, even non-smokers, knows when discussing cigars. When lighting up, think about how often you've been asked, “Is that a Cohiba?” While Cohiba may be the most recognized name in cigars, let’s discuss what’s really behind each of the Cohiba bands.

The word “Cohiba” originates in the Taino language, an indigenous people who lived in Cuba and Hispaniola (present-day Dominican Republic). The Taino used two pronunciations: Cohiba and Cojoba. Historically, the term "Cohiba" referred to tobacco. Some sources suggest it specifically meant "cured tobacco" or even "cigar," which highlights its deep connection to tobacco cultivation and usage. But for all intents and purposes, Cohiba literally means “tobacco.”

Interestingly, a similar Taino word, "Cuaba," referred to a highly flammable bush used for making torches. Though it sounds like Cohiba, Cuaba pertains to a different context within the Taino culture.

The History of Cohiba Cigars

Cohiba is one of the youngest Cuban cigar brands, yet it has swiftly risen to legendary status. The story begins sometime in the mid-1960s. Legend has it that Fidel Castro noticed the enticing aroma of a cigar being smoked by one of his bodyguards. After learning that the bodyguard's friend was rolling them personally, he sought out the man and inquired about the blend.

While this story remains part legend, what followed is well-documented: in 1968, Castro established a factory to produce the cigars exclusively for himself and high-ranking government officials. Under strict security, these cigars were a rare luxury, inaccessible to the general public until they were released for sale in the early 1980s.

The Cuban Embargo played a significant role in Cohiba's history. Due to the embargo, the United States did not recognize Cuban trademarks, allowing General Cigar to trademark a competing Cohiba brand in the U.S. in 1978. This led to the creation of the Cohiba Red Dot, a move that deeply angered Cuba's state-run tobacco company, Cubatabaco. Despite the tensions, both the Cuban Cohiba and the Cohiba Red Dot have carved out their own niches in the global cigar market, each representing different aspects of the Cohiba legacy.

Bring on the Fake Cuban Cohibas

Cuban Cohibas are among the most expensive cigars sold around the world (America excluded) and among the most counterfeited cigars in the world. So, if you’re ever asking if it’s a fake Cuban, it probably is. But if you didn’t pay a lot for it and it tastes good, smokes well, and you enjoyed it, the least you can do is chalk it up to a positive experience.

Modern Cohiba Cigars

Since their debut in the 1970s and continuing through the Cigar Boom, the Cohiba name pretty much spoke for itself. Even if you weren't a cigar smoker, chances are you knew what a Cohiba was—its reputation as a household name is that strong.

In the spring of 2017, General Cigar, the owner of the non-Cuban Cohiba brand, appointed Sean Williams as the brand ambassador in an effort to expand the Cohiba experience and deepen retailer and consumer engagement. Sean Williams has played a pivotal role in overseeing all Cohiba cigar events and has been integral to the release of new offerings, such as the Cohiba Royale.

Review excerpted from our Cohiba Serie M Panel Review

July 21, 2023

A whiff, a snip, and then blessed with fire—the countdown began. Like sands through the hourglass, I was reminded that this glorious cigar was expiring before my eyes with each extraordinary pull.

Lying a ways beyond my normal pedestrian tastes, the Cohiba Serie M is a luxury cigar that more than justifies its cost. Medium-bodied, the first notes—purely Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper from the closed foot—made me sit up and snap to attention with a dose of pepper and earth. As the binder and fillers caught flame, cedar, floral notes, and some sweetness came out to play.

Cohiba Serie M Prominente has all the hallmarks of an exceptional cigar—world-class ingredients, complexity galore, and everything in perfect balance. The pepper dials back noticeably in the second portion, allowing the other flavors to pop. Some nutmeg enters along with espresso, while cedar and earth hold down the fort. This Cohiba smokes long and cool and a hair over medium-bodied.

The end draws near, and I’m already lamenting setting the Cohiba Serie M down for the final time. Still a tick over medium-bodied, the cigar continues to keep me on my toes by offering up a climax containing its greatest hits so far.

While many (yours truly included) might initially balk at the price of the Cohiba M Prominente, the question to ask yourself isn’t whether to take the plunge. Perhaps a better question is, what are two-plus hours of happiness worth to you?

Review excerpted from #NowSmoking Cohiba Riviera

July 26, 2023

The opening puffs had a very wholesome and creamy feel on the palate. That creaminess also reminded me of light cream with a bit of added sugar. Early on, the body and strength of the cigar were impressively mellow, and the cigar got off to a very clean burn. The first flavor that hit me reminded me of honey-wheat bread. Further along, notes of leather and baking spices joined in. The result was a well-balanced and mellow mix of flavors. Approaching the midsection, the cigar remained pretty consistent in flavor, and that creaminess wasn’t letting up. The burn remained very clean, too.

At the heart of the cigar, the body and strength shifted to medium-plus. Leather and baking spices remained as drive-by mocha java made several passes. I also started to appreciate the cigar’s sweet-spicy aroma and a newfound oaky note (my on-camera Riviera also revealed a floral note). At this point, everything was singing in tune.

During the remaining inches, the core flavors were underscored by some earthiness. Also revealed was a curious pistachio nut flavor that finished with a slightly metallic taste. I stayed with the cigar until the last 1½-inches, where the smoke remained creamy and balanced while the body and strength offered no drastic change.

I think experienced cigar smokers who choose the Riviera may agree that the construction, creaminess, balance, and complexity are all in there. I’m even tempted to call it a “perfect cigar.” True, it comes at a posh Cohiba price, but as I said in our Cohiba Serie M review, if you’re willing to spend upwards of $50 for a Cuban Cohiba, the Riviera will not disappoint. I also like that its medium-ish strength makes it approachable to most cigar smokers.

Cohiba Royale Cigar Review

By: John Pullo

Country of Origin: Honduras
Size: Robusto (5 ½” x 54)
Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Nicaragua Jalapa Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua

Construction and Overall Appearance: The oily Broadleaf wrapper has a reddish hue; overall, the cigar is well-packed, with a triple-seam cap that cuts easily.
Draw/Pre-Light: Because the tobaccos are rolled in the Cuban-style entubar method, there’s an even draw that offers cold notes of leather and spice.
Toasting & Light: The initial flavors were leathery, with earth and bright, peppery notes.
Base Flavors: Leather, earth, cedar, and sweet spice.
Retrohale: There’s more pepper to be found here.
Aroma: Burns with a sweet, floral fragrance.

When we smoked the Cohiba Royale with Sean Williams, he said, “Cohiba Royale was created with the cigar connoisseur in mind.” That means every leaf in the blend has been extensively aged, from 5 to 6 years, and “represents the best-of-the-best tobacco growing regions in the world.”

The initial shot of pepper drops by the 3/4-inch mark, as does the first ash. The smoke is quite smooth, coating the palate and revealing a sweet, slightly floral room note. But the most impressive part of this cigar is how it was full-bodied but not strong; that’s the long aging of the leaves at work for you.

In sum, the Cohiba Royale Robusto is a 54-ring stunner offering a chewy, creamy, and well-balanced smoke with a full-flavored profile and some pleasant change-ups: layers of earth, wood, and spice, plus a just-right amount of sweetness. If you’d like a Cohiba Royale drink pairing suggestion, Sean Williams recommends iced tea; we paired it with Old Forester and did just fine.

As noted in our #nowsmoking Cohiba Royale review, the price is a little steep – but sometimes you find that the extra investment is worth it: “In recent years, there have been several cigars with similar price points, which I feel are worth the investment. That’s why I’m glad they did the Royale in 5-packs, too. The long-aged tobaccos are definitely one of the keys to this cigar. They also account for this cigar’s smoothness and ability to deliver a full-bodied smoke without overpowering you. For those who appreciate the ultra-smoothness and complexity of such highly refined blends, the Cohiba Royale Robusto is a keeper."

Cohiba Black Cigar Review

By: Gary Korb

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Size: Supremo (6″ x 54)
Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Piloto Cubano & Mexican (Aged three years in palm tercios)

Construction and Overall Appearance: Excellent. The cigar is almost black in color, more like an Oscuro, and firmly rolled with no soft spots. The wrapper is a bit rustic and toothy (typical of Connecticut Broadleaf), with an oily patina and a couple of conspicuous veins.
Draw: Very good.
Pre-Light Flavor: Sweet tobacco and leather.
First Few Puffs: Creamy and sweet.
Retrohale: Smooth, creamy and sweet.
Base Flavors: Sweet tobacco, cedar, cocoa, espresso.
Aroma: Sweet.
Burn / Ash Quality: Excellent. The burn is perfect, with a barely visible carbon line. Ash is firm and almost entirely white in color.
Balance of Flavors: Excellent.

It’s been a while since I smoked a Cohiba Black, but I remembered it fondly, and after lighting one up again, it was every bit as smooth, creamy, and sweet as I expected. (You won’t find many cigars with U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers of this quality, either.) The smoke is primarily medium-bodied, brimming with sweetness, and issues a redolent aroma. Flavors of sweet tobacco, cedar, and hints of cocoa dominate the first half. It's not an overly complex smoke, but you will find several different flavors lingering on the palate.

In the final third, the smoke becomes more formidable as the sweeter components wane while notes of espresso enter the fray. Cohiba Black is one of the few upmarket cigars that’s well worth its price point.

Cohiba Connecticut Cigar Review

By: Gary Korb

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Size: Robusto (5½” x 50)
Strength: Mellow to Medium
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade
Binder: Mexican San Andrés
Filler: Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Piloto Cubano, Dominican Olor and Nicaraguan tobacco from Jalapa

Construction and Overall Appearance: Beautifully rolled. The wrapper is immaculate, with an attractive Colorado patina and a silky texture.
Draw: Just right.
Pre-Light Flavor: Salt and sweet grass.
First Few Puffs: Mellow, creamy, and cedary.
Retrohale: Peppery spice.
Base flavors: Sweet and peppery spices, sweet cream, cedar, and some earthiness.
Aroma: Sweet and woody.
Burn / Ash Quality: Burn is even with a firm, light grey, gravity-defying ash. The first ash was 1¼-inches long.
Balance of Flavors: Perfect. The base flavors offer just the right amount of charm in equal amounts at various intervals.

You’d think they would have done it by now, but better late than never, right? This is the first Cohiba cigar to be rolled in Connecticut Shade wrapper, and it’s a beauty. It was grown in Ecuador’s Los Rios province on a plantation beside the Vinces River, where the soil is rich in volcanic assets. The result is a very clean-looking and virtually veinless leaf.

Once lit, the wrapper releases a sweet, woody aroma, and the palate is flooded with essentially matching notes of sweet cream and cedar. Sweet spice and cedar notes dominate the smoke, leaving a long, semi-dry finish. There is also a chorus of cream, light peppery spice, and a hint of earth that sings along in perfect harmony. Just past the midsection, I picked up a light mix of nutmeg and cinnamon as the cedar flavor took the Conn for a woody change-up.

In the final act, the Robusto takes on a more earthy tone while the cedary layer remains in command. Some sweetness remains, but the finish leaves a peppery smudge on the palate. Some bitterness sets in with just under two inches remaining, then rounds out to stronger notes of earth, wood, and spice as the sweetness exits stage left.

The Cohiba Connecticut Robusto is a refined, mellow-to-medium-bodied smoke that leans more to medium once it gets going. It also offers some interesting change-ups along the way while providing a creamy yet mostly sweet, woody, and spicy smoke. It is an ideal candidate for cigar smokers who want to discover the richness of the Dominican-made Cohiba cigars and a must-smoke for fans of top-grade Connecticut Shade wrappers.

Cohiba Blue Cigar Review

By: Gary Korb

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Size: Robusto (5½” x 50)
Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Honduran Olancho San Augustin (OSA)
Binder: Honduran OSA
Filler: Honduran Jamastran, Nicaraguan Ometepe, Dominican Piloto Cubano

Construction and Overall Appearance: Excellent. The wrapper is a little rustic in appearance with some unobtrusive veins and even in color with a slightly reddish patina.
Draw: Very good.
Pre-Light Flavor: Mildly sweet tobacco.
First Few Puffs: Sweet and creamy.
Retrohale: Peppery.
Base flavors: Cedar, molasses, light pepper
Burn / Ash Quality: Very good. The burn was mostly even with a thin carbon line—no significant issues. Ash was mostly light grey in color and firm.
Balance of Flavors: Excellent.

A mild, creamy, and slightly sweet start develops into a medium-bodied smoke with a more pronounced flavor of sweet cedar and a nip of white pepper on the finish. Within the first inch, the flavors of the Cohiba Blue opened up like turning a photograph from black and white to color. At this stage, a little more pepper was revealed on the finish.

At this early stage, the base flavors were essentially cedar and molasses, which I found very satisfying. The pepper was all but gone for the second and third acts, leaving just smooth, sweet, creamy smoke with a mostly woody character. Overall, it was very enjoyable, and if I had to compare it to otherCohiba cigars, the Blue is closest to the Cohiba Black.

Cohiba Nicaragua Cigar Review

By: Fred Lunt

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Size: N5 1/4X54 (5 ¼” x 54)
Strength: Full
Wrapper: Sun-grown Colorado Oscuro, Honduras
Binder: Nicaraguan, Jalapa
Filler: Nicaraguan, Esteli and Jalapa

Construction and Overall Appearance: The highly textured Colorado Oscuro wrapper is a rustic mahogany brown with some toothiness. There is slight peeling in one section and what appears to be a water stain that could have come from shipping. The cigar is well constructed, as there are no noticeable soft spots.
Draw: Nice and easy, smooth and cool burn.
Pre-Light Flavor: Pre-light featured notes of leather and wood with a subtle note of cocoa. At the foot, a leather and subtle woodiness was detected.
Toasting & Light: Right off the bat, it's a sweet cedar. There are also notes of grass, barnyard, light pepper, and wood. The finish is slightly tangy and a bit woody, too.
Base Flavors: Wood, pepper, leather, and cedar; there is a lot of sweetness in there.
Retrohale: Very peppery, cedar finish
Burn / Ash Quality: Very solid ash. The cigar canoed a few times, but the Cohiba Nicaragua fixed itself pretty quickly. About 2/3 in, I had a small battle with keeping the cherry going. Due to its cool burn, it became prone to going out, leading me to several touchups. I was forced to quit after the third touchup.
Balance of Flavors: Well balanced with a pleasant pepper-spice combination that would pop its head up occasionally.
Consistency: The flavors in both cigars were spot on with each other; unfortunately, the burn issues were as well.

When you think of Nicaraguan cigars, you think of brands such as Padron, Drew Estate and Alec Bradley’s Nica Puro. As Nicaraguan tobacco has reached mainstream success, Dominican companies have been more than eager to produce some of their own—evidenced by Davidoff Nicaragua, Romeo y Julieta’s RyJ, and now Cohiba Nicaragua.

This Cohiba Nicaragua comes in a stout 5 ¼ x 54 Robusto adorned in a mahogany brown Colorado Oscuro wrapper, sun-grown in Honduras. While not a puro, this version of Cohiba takes on a Nicaraguan binder from the Jalapa growing region with Jalapa and Esteli long filler. So it’s mostly Nicaraguan tobacco, though it’s certainly not a pepper bomb, as one might imagine. I found this stogie on the medium-to-full side but very complex, creamy, savory, and sweet.

This cigar wasted no time opening medium in body, with wood, hay, and sweet pepper flavors. Within a few puffs, those flavors tapered off, yet the intensity remained the same. The first third was marked by a peppery tang, woody and earthy notes, with a full, thick, and creamy smoke. This pepper would come in and out of the cigar at various intervals. The second third added some sweetness to that same peppery tang; the intensity kicked up another notch while a creamy cedar flavor took over. The transition into the last third was marked by another outburst of pepper, followed by a caramel-like sweetness and a pleasant, almost savory smoke.

Most would consider Cohiba Nicaragua a full-bodied smoke, yet it certainly isn’t overpowering. Unfortunately, both samples had a few burn issues, and repeated relights left a bitter aftertaste.

When smoking a Cohiba, you know you’re paying for some quality tobacco and a consistently good smoke–and even in light of the touch-ups, this is a very fine cigar. But my wheelhouse for Nicaraguan cigars is the sticks that are more consistent in their spicy flavors. Though it’s fairly complex, I instead found this Nicaragua edition of Cohiba to smoke with a pronounced natural sweetness. So if you like your cigars smooth, with a creamy pepper flavor wrapped up in sweetness, these Cohiba cigars might be right for you.

Cohiba Macassar Cigar Review

By: Tommy Zman

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Size: Double Corona (7 ¼” x 54)
Strength: Full
Construction and Overall Appearance: Dark & oily
Draw: Excellent
Base Flavors: wood, pepper, spice, espresso, black cherry
Burn / Ash Quality: Solid

Spoiler Alert: In my opinion, THIS is the best Cohiba that the good people at General Cigar create. Okay, now I am obligated to tell you why I feel that way and why I think you’re going to like it.

Make no mistake about it: the Macassar is a super-premium cigar. While the price point reflects that statement, upon smoking one, you’ll instantly come to the same conclusion. The filler tobacco is an interesting combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican goodness, aged no less than four full years. The binder is a hearty Connecticut broadleaf, and that wrapper is a dark and oily Connecticut Habano leaf that has slowly aged for an entire year in deliciously fragrant rum barrels.

The pre-light has a pleasant flavor of sweet wood and a sweet yet peppery scent when you put your nose to the open foot. Now, this stick is a big boy at 7 ¼ x 54, and what’s awesome is that the flavors change nicely throughout the smoke, making this a hell of a complex treat.

Right off the back, you get a little front-loaded pepper on the tongue. It's not overpowering, but it's just enough to let you know you’ve got a flavor bomb on your hands. After about two minutes or so, a sweet wood flavor begins to take over, which is sublime and a result of the tobacco aging for twelve months in those rum barrels. Some spice kicks in for that complex sweet and spicy combo, and I just can’t put this thing down for even a second. But it’s about the halfway point where you start to taste espresso and a definite hit of black cherry, which is just stupid delicious.

This really is one of those sticks where you become saddened when it’s done, but after an hour and a half of aged tobacco euphoria, the needle on your satisfaction meter is at its high point. The Cohiba Macassar is a super-premium worth your time when celebrating life is beckoning you. Like I said, my favorite of all the Cohibas.

Cohiba Red Dot Cigar Review

By: John Pullo

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Size: Toro Tube (6″ x 50)
Presentation: Tube
Strength: Medium
Wrapper: Cameroon
Binder: Indonesian Jember
Filler: Cuban-seed Dominican

Construction and Overall Appearance: The wrapper is a dark Cameroon; it is somewhat silky, a little veiny, and slightly toothy. The leaf used in this NC Cohiba is very thin and delicate; it’s also seriously tasty.
Draw/Pre-Light Flavor: A straight/guillotine cut reveals just a little resistance. The pre-light flavor is a clean, natural tobacco sensation with a bit of a grassy or wheaty taste—there’s not a lot of intensity to it at all, which I think might be why people believe this Cohiba smokes lighter than it really does.
Toasting & Light: It takes the flame easily, with a very mild body on the first few pulls—but a rush of spice comes to the tongue in short order.
Base Flavors: Clean, light, grassy, wheaty. As a fun surprise, the mild taste gets a sudden peppery pick-me-up, which comes and goes through the whole smoke. There’s always been an amount of hype about Cohiba having notes of caramel; I disagree – it’s more like honey. Cedar, tea, and salt all make an appearance while smoking it.
Retrohale: Being a little milder makes this Toro an easy retrohale, but I feel an exotic spice pops the senses with some zang.
Aroma: Very smooth, very buttery, with a hint of sweet tobacco. You certainly won’t be tossed out of a herf or cigar bar for firing this one up–it’s a crowd-pleaser.
Burn / Ash Quality: These Cohibas both burned with a white, tight, solid ash. That tells me two things: the cigars’ construction is excellent, and the soil in which the tobacco was grown was full of nutrients, so you know the plants were taken care of. These are good things.

When you’re Cohiba, one of the most recognizable cigar brands in world history–you’re expected to do it right and show up with a rock-solid consistency, yet still provide an easy, laid-back smoke that is tinged with a variety of nuances from start to finish.

The first third of this NC Cohiba has a mild start that’s creamy with a hint of pepper, though it’s really more noticeable than just a hint. Before long, a tangy flavor takes over, with a somewhat salty taste.

The second third is when tea and honey flavors start to perk up, along with a woody/cedar sensation. It’s also at this point that this Red Dot bumps up to a more medium-bodied cigar and settles there for the rest of the time I’m smoking it.

In the last third, the cedar notes pop, and the whole taste of the cigar gets a little earthy before I have to put it down with an inch to go.

The bottom line is that it starts mildly and intensifies over the 90 minutes I smoked it; there’s a bit of oomph in there, but it's never over the top or out of balance. You could pair this Dominican Cohiba with a variety of good drinks; doing so would actually bring even more out of it. Just go light–while this Cohiba won’t overpower you, a too-strong drink could overpower the cigar. For instance, I’m not a brandy guy (it’s too sweet for my liking), but I’m wondering what would happen if I matched this cigar with a mellow, less peaty Scotch.

Cohiba cigars are sometimes overlooked in favor of fuller smokes. My advice is that if you opt for this non-Cuban Cohiba, take your time and let the flavors develop, as this cigar blossoms with a variety of mellow tastes you might otherwise miss.
