Havana, April 2008. Sublimes Extra is the vitola chosen by Habanos s.a. for the Cohiba Habanos Collection. As usual this case resembles a book and it represents the Volume No. 8 of this Special Serie.
This case contains 20 Sublimes Extra cigars (girth 54 and 184 mm long), a size especially designed for this collection to be remembered as one of the greatest smokes ever within the brand. A considerable length, a beautiful girth comprising a well balanced blend, an excellent draw, a refined aroma and the Cohiba´s unique taste are the features that really stands out in this release.
Leaves used in the making of Cohiba cigars are the “selection of the selection” and come from the San Juan y Martinez and San Luis zones of the Vuelta Abajo region. Cohiba also has one feature which makes it stand out over the rest of Habano brands: Two of Cohiba’s filler leaves, the seco and ligero, undergo a third fermentation in barrels, which adds smoothness to the blend.
Its production limited to only 1000 cases, made by Cuban craftsmen, results in a very sought-after item for those who looks for the exclusivity and it will be available in the next months in the Casas del Habano outlets worldwide.
