Cohiba Medio Siglo – Single Cigar Tubed
4 inch by 52 Ring Guage short robusto from this iconic brand
As part of Cohiba’ s 50th anniversary celebrations, a new vitola was introduced to their La Linea 1492 range called Medio Siglo. Medio Siglo (translating to half century) is the first new vitola to join the Siglo series since the addition of the Siglo VI in 2002.
The Medio Siglo carries the girth of a Siglo VI (52) and the length of a Siglo I (4″ /102mm). With these two hugely popular vitolas joining forces, the Medio Siglo is sure to be a great success.
The name is an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves that Columbus first saw being smoked by the original inhabitants of Cuba – the earliest known form of a Habano.
The leaves for Cohiba are a selection from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone. Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba’s filler leaves, the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba.
