Cohiba is well known for having two kinds of premium cigar products, the first is made from the Dominican Republic that is made for US-based market and distribution, and the other is made from Cuba for the Habanos S.A. or the Cuban owned tobacco company.
The cigar brand was founded in 1966 and started with limited production and supply. Initially, they are made exclusively for Fidel Castro and high-ranking officials of the Communist Party in Cuba or the Cuban Government. Their first public production came out in the market in 1982.
Cohiba is another term for ‘tobacco’. It comes from the native Taino word.
