Cohiba launches Weller by Cohiba

On July 1, 2021, Cohiba launched Weller by Cohiba, the first Cohiba cigar to be created expressly for pairing with a fine spirit. Developed in partnership with Weller Bourbon, the limited edition Cohiba cigar was blended to complement Weller Bourbon.

Cohiba Brand Ambassador Sean Williams said, “We blended Weller by Cohiba to be the ultimate cigar for spirits connoisseurs. The experience is rich and layered, imparting notes of cocoa, espresso and leather on the palate before cascading to a luxurious finish. While the depth and complexity of this cigar make it the ideal choice for pairing with your favorite spirit, Weller by Cohiba is equally as extraordinary when savored on its own.”

Dressed in a hearty, full-bodied Honduran San Agustin Ligero wrapper and bound with Connecticut Havano Medio Tiempo, the blend is made with hand-selected tobaccos from Estelí and the remote volcanic island of Ometepe in Nicaragua.

Weller by Cohiba is a limited edition release. Cohiba will not disclose the number of cigars being produced by the artisans at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, DR. The blend will be launched in one size, a 5 1/2 x 50 Robusto featuring Cohiba and Weller Bourbon branding elements and presented in an elegant glass tube.

Weller by Cohiba will sell for a suggested retail price of USD 19.99 per cigar or USD 199.90 for a box containing ten cigars. This release will be available through fine cigar shops across the U.S. and began shipping to select retailers today, on July 1.

Future collaborations between Cohiba and Weller Bourbon are currently being explored.
