The Talismán is one of the most eagerly anticipated cigar releases for many years, joins the group of iconic Cohiba vitolas that have been launched within the Habanos Limited Edition concept. This includes previous releases such as the Cohiba Sublimes (2004), Cohiba 1966 (2011) and the most recent Cohiba Supremos (2014). The Talismán is destined to become a firm favourite and will soon sit proudly in the Cohiba Limited Edition hall of fame.
Measuring an impressive 6 1/8“ (154mm) x 54 ring gauge, these stunning cigars are presented in 10s in the traditional Cohiba style of varnished slide lid boxes (SLB). The blend matches the flavour profile of Cohiba’s La Línea Clasica range (medium to full) with the head of each cigar finished with a “pigtail” found on La Línea Behike.
All the tobaccos used in a Limited Edition cigar are aged for at least two years. However, in addition to this, the Seco and Ligero leaf in Cohiba cigars undergo an ‘extra fermentation’. This may last as long as eighteen months and is conducted at the factory in cedar barrels. Cohibas are the only Cuban cigars to undergo this process and it provides all of their cigars with a unique smoothness. The Maduro wrapper leaf that has been used to dress this cigar provides just a touch of sweetness that plays across the top of the palate.

One of the first Edicion Limitada made by Habanos SA in year 2000 which became celebrated linea for very special Habanos cigars for each year since.
"This Habano has deep, dark, oily "Oscuro" wrapper, with sharp head. Full bodied cigar that develops stronger aromas on 2nd part. Almost 'creamy' flavors with spices. Ash seem to hold like hell. Won't fall, fantastic hold. Maybe the best construction I've ever smoke. Full of character."
