General Cigar Launches Cohiba Blue




General Cigar, makers of the non-Cuban versions of Hoyo de Monterrey, Partagas, Punch and Cohiba, has released a more affordable version of its storied Cohiba brand. Called Cohiba Blue, the value-priced cigar is crafted with a three-country blend of tobaccos from Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The cigar launched earlier this month and is available at retail stores now.



Cohiba blue is rolled with a Honduran wrapper and binder, both leaves hailing from the Olancho San Agustín region of the country. The filler blend contains Honduran Jamastran, Nicaraguan Ometepe and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos.




  • Churchill: 7 1/2 x 50
  • Robusto: 5 1/2 x 50
  • Rothschild: 4 1/2 x 50
  • Toro: 6 x 54


Cohiba Blue is billed as medium-bodied cigar and ships in blue, 20-count wooden boxes. The cigar is rolled at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
