Today, General Cigar launched a new cigar under the Cohiba brand: Weller by Cohiba. The cigar is meant to be paired with Weller Bourbon made by the Buffalo Trace distillery. The blend was made in partnership with Weller Bourbon and was made to compliment the wide array of hard-to-find Weller Bourbon.
“We blended Weller by Cohiba to be the ultimate cigar for spirits connoisseurs. The experience is rich and layered, imparting notes of cocoa, espresso and leather on the palate before cascading to a luxurious finish. While the depth and complexity of this cigar make it the ideal choice for pairing with your favorite spirit, Weller by Cohiba is equally as extraordinary when savored on its own.”
The blend uses a Honduran San Agustin Ligero wrapper, Connecticut Havano Medio Tiempo binder, and filler tobaccos from Esteli and Ometepe in Nicaragua. Weller by Cohiba is a limited edition release. Production numbers were not disclosed. It comes in one size, a 5.5 x 50 Robusto in a glass tube. Suggested retail price is $19.99 or $199 for the box of 10. Weller by Cohiba started shipping today.
