Using one of the rarest wrappers that has been grown and harvested from an equatorial African forest, called Meerapfel African Gold! Cohiba Luxury’s special wrapper tobacco has been painstakingly cultivated by the Meerapfel family.
This extraordinary leaf is the stuff of legend, for the blood red soil yields an extremely rare tobacco that is a sight to behold as it is to smoke. Aged for five years, this ethereal tobacco comprises the very foundation of Cohiba's most limited and exclusive offering. The binder and filler leaves are hand selected and carefully fermented in a proprietary process lasting four months before undergoing an additional six months of aging in rum barrels. Upon emerging from the artisans hands, the freshly rolled cigars rest in special aging cases sprinkled with cedar shavings and tobacco leaves to enhance their flavor. The result is a cigar of incomparable taste and aroma. The new No. 2 vitola extends the collection with a 6x52 pareo. Given the rarity of tobaccos and the amount of time it takes to create Cohiba Luxury Selection, this limited edition will only be available until the limited quantity is depleted.
