Cohiba 1966 Leads Trio of New Cuban Edición Limitadas

We have the names of this year's trio of Cuban Edición Limitadas, and the star of the group is a fat new Cohiba that is sure to grab worldwide attention.

The Cohiba 1966 Edicón Limitada measures 6 1/2 inches long by 52 ring gauge. The shape, dubbed a cañonazo especial by the Cuban cigar industry, has the same girth as the Cohiba Behike BHK 52, Cigar Aficionado's Cigar of the Year. The cigar is meant to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the cigar brand, which originally was only available as a gift of the Cuban government.

Cuba releases three Edición Limitadas a year, announcing the lineup in late winter or early spring, and releasing the cigars worldwide much later in the year. The other two cigars are the Hoyo de Monterrey Short Hoyo Piramides, a 5 1/3 inch long, 46 ring figurado, and the Ramon Allones Allones Extra, a 44 ring gauge cigar that's slightly longer than 5 1/2 inches.

The information comes at the very start of the thirteenth annual Festival del Habano, the largest cigar festival in the world. A team from Cigar Aficionado is heading to Havana to cover the event. To get all news coming out of Cuba, follow the website all this week.

For much more on the Edición Limitada program, read Gordon Mott's in depth interview with the top officials from Habanos S.A. in the April issue of Cigar Aficionado, on newsstands soon.
