Experience the Perfect Blend of Flavor and Luxury
In a delightful revelation for cigar aficionados and whiskey enthusiasts alike, Cohiba Cigars proudly presents the latest installment of their coveted Weller by Cohiba series. The 2023 edition, now available at select retail shops across the United States, is a true testament to the artistry of both cigar and whiskey making. This limited-edition cigar blend not only captivates the senses but also elevates the fine tradition of indulgence.
Aged in Bourbon Barrels: A Flavor Journey
True to the legacy of Weller by Cohiba, this third iteration continues the tradition of incorporating tobacco aged in bourbon barrels. However, what sets this release apart is the collaboration with Weller Bourbon. The 2023 blend features a binder leaf crafted from Connecticut-grown Broadleaf, aged in authentic Weller Bourbon barrels that journeyed from the esteemed Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY, to the heart of cigar craftsmanship at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR.
An Exquisite Fusion of Flavors
Wrapped in a luxurious Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper, the blend showcases a meticulous selection of filler tobaccos sourced from the Esteli and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua, complemented by Brazilian Mata Fina. The star of the show, the Connecticut-grown Broadleaf binder, enriched by its time within Weller Bourbon barrels, delivers an unparalleled smoking experience. With each draw, notes of earth, oak, and black pepper intertwine, enhanced by a soft burst of molasses that adds an intriguing dimension to the palate.
A Conversation with Cohiba Brand Ambassador Sean Williams
Sean Williams, the Cohiba Brand Ambassador, shared his insights into this remarkable blend: “With our third iteration of Weller by Cohiba, we’ve delved even deeper into the realm of barrel aging on tobacco. The infusion of complexity from the Weller bourbon barrel-aged binder leaf not only enriches the palate but also elevates the aromatic experience. This is a sophisticated cigar that pairs harmoniously with bourbon and aged brown spirits, delivering an indulgent smoking journey on its own.”
