Habanos S.A. Presents Cohiba Maduro 5 and Reserva de Montecristo

Cohiba Maduro 5

Habanos S.A., the world leader and number one in Premium Cuban cigars, showcased its star launch for 2007 at the Habanos Festival: Cohiba Maduro 5, the new line of mature Cuban cigars from Cohiba. This addition to the Cohiba brand, known for its internationally renowned Clasica and 1492 (Century) lines, was officially presented during the Welcome Night, which marked the beginning of a week-long celebration for cigar enthusiasts. The ninth edition of the festival witnessed a record number of participants.

A Tradition of Excellence

Cohiba Maduro 5 continues the legacy of Cuban dark layer cigars (capa madura) by utilizing the upper leaves of the tobacco plant. These leaves achieve a unique range of dark colors and textures through a meticulous process of natural fermentation. The wrapper, aged for five years, imparts distinctive characteristics to the three sizes of the Maduro 5 line.

These sizes align with the latest market trends, offering cigar aficionados diverse options.

An Iconic Image

Maduro 5 establishes its own distinct identity within the Cohiba brand. While retaining the traditional Cohiba ring, a black lower band bearing the Maduro 5 brand has been introduced. The wooden boxes for Maduro 5 also sport a darker color compared to the Classic and Los Siglos lines, further highlighting the uniqueness of this new addition.

Reserva de Montecristo

Habanos S.A. also announced the launch of Reserva de Montecristo, a special tribute to the Montecristo No. 4 band. Known as the best-selling factory size cigar in history since its inception in 1935, the Montecristo No. 4 has sold over a billion cigars worldwide.

Aged to Perfection

Reserva de Montecristo features a three-year-aged wrapper, binder, and filler leaves. These cigars are packaged in luxurious black lacquered cases, each containing 20 double-banded cigars. The bands consist of the brand-specific ring along with the Reserva ring. Limited to 5,000 numbered cases, this Special Launch is reserved for true connoisseurs who appreciate the essence of a fine Habano.

The Habano: A Luxury Product

The introduction of Cohiba Maduro 5 and Reserva de Montecristo No. 4 strengthens Habanos S.A.’s strategy to position premium cigars as a luxury product. The Casas del Habano, renowned for contributing to the success of Premium Habanos sales and the dissemination of Habano culture worldwide, continues to play a vital role.
