Cohiba – the name itself is legendary. The original Cuban Brand of the same name came about when Eduardo Rivera was commissioned by Fidel Castro to create these rich, aromatic sticks for the elite of the Cuban regime. They became the must-have cigar for diplomats and others operating at the upper echelon of world affairs. When the American embargo of Cuban goods began, many brands were re-established in the Dominican Republic, where the Red Dot cigars are hand-rolled. A sensuous creamy smoke with luscious overtones of spice and peppers, the Cohiba Red Dot provides an even burn from start to finish. The ash is firm and well-formed. The cigars are a memorable smoke with a history as complex as its rewarding taste.
