Cohiba Blue is another line of cigars produced by General Cigar Company, separate from the Cuban Cohiba brand. This line is a more accessible and affordable offering compared to some of the other Cohiba lines while maintaining the quality and craftsmanship associated with the Cohiba name. Cohiba Blue has gained popularity among cigar enthusiasts due to its approachable price point, smooth flavor profile, and excellent construction.
Cohiba Blue cigars feature a blend of three different tobaccos, all of which are aged for at least six months in tercios (palm bark bales). The filler is a mix of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Honduran tobaccos, providing a harmonious combination of flavors. The binder is a Honduran leaf from the Olancho San Agustin region, which imparts additional complexity to the blend.
The wrapper is a silky, slightly reddish-brown Honduran Habano leaf, which contributes a touch of natural sweetness and a hint of spice. These cigars are handcrafted with care, ensuring consistent construction, burn, and draw throughout the smoking experience.
Cohiba Blue cigars are known for their medium-bodied, smooth, and well-rounded flavor profile. As you smoke a Cohiba Blue, you can expect to experience notes of cedar, earth, toasted nuts, and a subtle hint of spice. The blend is designed to be approachable and enjoyable for a wide range of cigar enthusiasts, making it a popular choice for both beginners and seasoned smokers alike.
The affordability of Cohiba Blue cigars also contributes to their popularity. They offer an excellent introduction to the Cohiba brand for those who may not have experienced it before or are looking for a more budget-friendly option without compromising on quality.
