Cohiba® will release a second iteration of Weller by Cohiba. The limited-edition blend marks the first Cohiba blend to be made with bourbon barrel-aged tobacco.
Developed in partnership with Weller Bourbon, the 2022 Weller by Cohiba blend features a Connecticut-grown Broadleaf binder leaf that has been aged in authentic Weller Bourbon barrels transported from the famed Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY to General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR where the cigars were crafted.
“For our second expression of Weller by Cohiba, we set out to deepen the connection between the cigar and the spirit, and we did this through our proprietary barrel aging process for tobacco. In allowing the binder leaf to age in bourbon barrels, we have added another dimension to the smoking experience which offers rich notes of cedar, honey and a subtle spice that come to life on the palate and in the aroma. This blend is exceptional.”Sean Williams, Cohiba Brand Ambassador.
