The only true Cohiba available in the United
States, the Dominican Cohiba from General Cigar is that which all others are
measured. And that bar has been raised by the Cohiba Black Gigante!
As the Gigante emerges from a stylish aluminum
tube, you know right away this stick will be something special. Made from the
highest quality Dominican and Mexican filler tobaccos, the Cohiba Black is
surrounded by a 3 year-aged Dominican Pilato binder and a dark Connecticut
Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. Aging the binder in tercios, or palm bark bales,
brings out the unique flavor that leaps out of the Cohiba Black Gigante with
every luscious puff.
Richly textured pepper, nougat, earth and cream
flavors roll easily through the draw while bursts of espresso dash into the
mix. Medium-bodied to start, this 6” x 60 behemoth will morph into an ever-changing
full-bodied excursion until its grandiose finish.
The Cohiba Black Gigante is a tremendous smoke
with serious flavors and girth and is the ideal choice for those with an hour
and half to burn. The Cohiba Black is one of the best ways to enjoy the finest
the Dominican cigar industry has to offer and will surely find a place of honor
in your humidor.
