The Cohiba Genios Maduro 5 (Box of 25) is considered as the little giant Habanos. It is well known for its smooth smoke, easy and rich burn as well as its fantastic blend of flavors. It has a tinge of dark chocolate and sweet pepper along with the incredible aroma present from first until the last draw. It is most notable for its short burst of spice making it very popular with experienced smokers. This is a remarkably medium to full bodied Cuban roll with the right balance of power, aroma and flavor making it a well sought after stick to cigar aficionados from all over the world. All of these qualities can be attributed to its 5 kinds of wrappers that have aged for five years.


Cohiba is considered as a premium brand of cigar that is manufactured for Habanos S.A in Cuba which is the government owned tobacco firm and the General Cigar Company which is a Dominican Republic counterpart. The term “Cohiba” was derived from the Taino Indians term for tobacco.
This Cuban cigar brand is packed with the highest quality tobacco from the region of Vuelta Abajo which is also in Cuba. What makes the Cohiba extra unique is the process of making the rolls. The leaves used or the wrapper of the Cohiba cigars has undergone fermentation. It was established in the year 1968 with its partial production. The very first batch of the Cohiba cigars was exclusively delivered to Fidel Castro as well as the other Cuban head of state. These cigars are oftentimes given as gifts to influential personalities which creates a bit of controversy. Later on, the Cohiba was made commercially available to the masses in 1982.
The Cohiba US brand was registered in the year 1978 under the General Cigar Company. These cigars are being manufactured to meet the demands of the US market on a wide scale since 1997. Thus, the Cohiba that is not associated with the Cuban cigar does not have Cuban tobacco which means that they can be legally sold in the US.
The Cuban Cohiba can be traced back in the middle years of the 1960s when Fidel Castro’s bodyguard shared a few of his private cigars rolled by Eduardo Ribera, a cigar roller in a Cuban cigar factory. Castro loved the cigar so much that he requested a small number of cigar rollers to make these unbranded cigar under tight security measures. These cigars were supplied solely to Castro and other authorities.
Hence, the Cohiba started with Castro’s inclination with the very nice and aromatic cigar that his bodyguard was smoking. During that time, his bodyguard referred to the cigar as a special blend and later on named as Cohiba. These were initially produced in a mansion in Little Lake or the El Laguito factory. In the past, only a few cigar rollers were asked to manufacture these cigars using the finest materials. But now, the Cohiba is famous all over the globe.
The manufacturing of these special cigars for the highest officials of the state under tight security was given more drive by fears of the ongoing assassination efforts of the CIA against Che Guevarra and Fidel Castro. In fact, the technical department of the CIA is known to have collaborated with the creation of exploding cigars to make assassinations happen in the early periods of the 1960s.
