Habanos S.A. celebrates


This exceptional cigar marked the beginning of the new year. Furthermore, it also honors the 30th anniversary of Cohiba Línea 1492, one of the most successful lines of the top Habanos brand Cohiba.

The Cohiba Siglo de Oro Vitola presents itself with a ring gauge of 54 and a length of 115 mm. To emphasize the uniqueness of this masterpiece, the Cohiba Siglo de Oro is produced in limited edition. Only a limited number of cigar lovers will be able to enjoy this exquisite vitola.

18 cigars per NFC box

Each Cohiba Siglo de Oro cigar box contains 18 carefully handcrafted Habanos. The wrappers, filler and binder were selected with the utmost precision. They all come from the most prestigious growing region of Vuelta Abajo in the Pinar del Rio region of Cuba. The Cohiba Siglo de Oro is characterized by nuances of green tea and a hint of white pepper. Accompanied by subtle earthy aromas. The compact format with excellent draw resistance make the smoking experience a real pleasure.

The Cohiba Siglo de Oro represents a highlight in yet another aspect. For the first time in the history of Habanos, S.A., the cigar boxes of this vitola are equipped with the innovative NFC technology. This technology allows cigar lovers to scan the NFC chip on the packaging. This verifies the authenticity of the product. And you get additional information about the cigar (see film above). This integration makes the brand experience for cigar lovers even more comprehensive.

China one of the most important markets

"China is currently one of the most important markets for our company, and Cohiba is the most famous Habanos brand in the world. Therefore, we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce such a special vitola as the Cohiba Siglo de Oro. The incorporation of NFC technology completes the brand experience," emphasized a spokesperson for Habanos, S.A.

The highly elaborate high-gloss lacquer black boxes with domed lid are shaped like a Chinese pagoda. On the top they contain metallic inlays with the brand logo. There is also the emblem for the 30th anniversary of Cohiba Línea de Oro and the symbol of the rabbit. Inside the lid, in addition to the NFC chip, there is also a plaque with the number of the box. A total of 18,888 boxes are offered worldwide. The "8" is considered a lucky number in Chinese numerology. 

Pairing and format

For a perfect taste experience, Habanos recommends a 15-year-old Havana Club Rum and Havana Club "Union". He finds his soul mate in the Chinese Oloong tea. In this way, he combines two cultures - that of Habanos and that of tea.
