Cohiba Behike Range – 52/54/56

Cohiba, established in 1966, but was not accessible to the public until 1982, is often considered the most prestigious brand when it comes to Cuban cigars. I’ve had the pleasure to witness many novices and experienced smokers enjoy cigars across the entire range of Cohiba from Panatelas to Siglo VI’s. However, it was not until 2010 when a new line of Cohiba was introduced, the Cohiba Linea Behike, whereby 3 different sizes (vitolas) were introduced, the Cohiba Behike 52, 54 and 56 (representative of its ring gauge sizes).Now, it is one of the most exclusive cigars sought after from cigar smokers and collectors around the world. Although this is a regular production cigar, its production is highly limited and thus its price is now much higher and intensely hard to find. This is because the Behike incorporates an extra filler leaf to its blend, called the Medio Tiempo – which is found at the top of the tobacco plant where it receives the most direct sunlight and provides a richness to the cigar’s flavour, however, not ALL tobacco plants grow this leaf due to natural reasons, thus the production of this cigar relies predominantly on nature playing its part, which emphasises its exclusivity. The term ‘Cohiba’ refers to the native Indians (Taino’s) language whereby it translates to ‘a stick of tobacco’ as described when Christopher Columbus discovered the island in 1492. And now with this new line they chose to increase the historical presence across the brand, as ‘Behike’ is what the native tribe

leaders were called. Thus, not only is it Beautiful cigars and presentation, but a beautiful symbolic and historical aspect is attached to these cigars and now extremely difficult to find a box, it is considered a worthy investment.
