U.K. First To Get New Cohiba Cigars – Nov 2017

Ok cigar lovers in the UK get ready to be the very first to get your hands on the Cohiba Cohiba Talismán Edición Limitada 2017.

A November 7th 2017 launch party will be held by British distributor Hunters & Frankau as they unveil the one of this year’s biggest and most anticipated Cuban Limitadas. The Habanos confirms these Cohiba cigars officially go on sale the day after the launch and that the UK would be the first to receive them.

The Cohiba Talismán is fairly fat for a Cuban cigar, with a 54 ring gauge and a length of 6 1/8 inches. This size is a new one for the Cuban cigar portfolio, called a cañonazo doble, which translates to “double cannon shot.” It’s a beefed up version of the cañonazo vitola, created in 2003 with the launch of the Cohiba Siglo VI.

The Cohiba Talismán is plumper and longer than the other two Edición Limitadas for 2017. The Punch Regios de Punch measures only 4 3/4 inches long by 48 ring, and the Partagás Serie No. 1 is 5 1/2 by 52. Unlike some of the new cigars of 2017, there was no advance tasting of the 2017 Edición Limitadas at the Habanos Festival in Cuba earlier this year, and as of today, none of them had appeared in retail humidors anywhere in the world, including Havana.

Cohiba cigars is no stranger to heavy ring gauges when it comes to the Edición Limitada program. The Cohiba Sublimes (2004) had a 54 ring gauge; the Cohiba 1966 (2011) was rolled as a 52 ring Cañonzo Especial and the Robusto Supremo (2014) came in at a whopping 58 ring gauge, the thickest Edición Limitada ever to be released, not to mention one of the heftiest smokes in commercial Habanos history.

The Talismáns will come in boxes of 10. There was no word on pricing for the new cigar, but it won’t come cheap.
