Cigar News: New Edition Of Weller By Cohiba Debuts At Retail

Reading Time: 2 minutes

2023 Blend Highlights The Crafts Of Cigar And Whiskey Making

The third iteration of Weller by Cohiba® has begun debuting at retail shops across the US. And like previous Weller By Cohiba cigar releases, the limited-edition cigar blend includes prime tobacco aged in bourbon barrels.

This 2023 release of Weller by Cohiba features a Connecticut-grown Broadleaf binder leaf aged in authentic Weller Bourbon barrels. The aging barrels, which come from the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY, have been transported to General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR, where the cigars were crafted.

Notes of earth, oak, and black pepper lead with an intriguing smack of molasses. Meanwhile, the hearty, barrel-aged Connecticut Broadleaf binder adds its own unique flavor and aroma to the blend.

“For our third blend of Weller by Cohiba, we deepened the exploration of barrel aging on tobacco,” said Cohiba Brand Ambassador Sean Williams. “In calling upon Weller bourbon barrels to deepen the complexity of the binder leaf, we have added a layer of dimension that makes itself known not only on the palate but also through the aroma. This is a sophisticated cigar that pairs beautifully with bourbon or aged brown spirits and delivers a decadent smoking experience on its own.”
