Cohiba is a company that operates in Cuba, making fine Cuban cigars for the communists and the people who visit. The company was founded shortly after the Cuban revolution, and until the early 80s their cigars were almost impossible to get unless you knew a dignitary who regularly traveled to Cuba and who was in good with the communist government. You aren’t likely to come across those Cohibas right now.
However, there is another Cohiba cigar company. They make their cigars over in the Dominican Republic, and they make a product that, while it may not have the allure of the Cuban Cohiba, is every bit as good. The Pequeno is their attempt to answer the question ‘how can I fit the full flavor of a good cigar into a smoke break and not end up late going back to work or having to abandon a decent portion of the cigar’.
The Pequenos come in a pack of six cigarillos, a pack that will fit in almost any shirt pocket or purse. They’re a flavorful little cigarillo, too; medium-full in body, and made with a dark Maduro wrapper and a Dominican Piloto binder that has been aged to perfection, with filler from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. If you like a dark cigar with a heavier flavor and more earthy tones, and you like an oily cigar wrapper, this is the perfect cigar for you, and one you will be glad you found in your local humidor or online via your favorite internet cigar shop.
