FIDEL’S FAVOURITE IS 50 YEARS OLD
To celebrate its half century, the cigar brand Cohiba – Fidel Castro’s favourite, as whispered in Cuba – launched a series of 50 very exclusive humidors, each piece decorated in the front with 24 carat golden tobacco leaves.
The humidor contains 50 cigars from a very particular assembly, composed of 5 tobacco leaves, each of a different variety. Only four pieces of this Cohiba 50 Aniversario, with a value above 200.000 € each, have been sold in the Benelux. The N°1 of the series was purchased by Cohiba Atmosphere in Antwerp, an initiative of Reza Valibalouch, who is also the owner of Casa del Habano on Ernest Van Dijckkaai. Cohiba Atmosphere is a “members only” lounge and its name is a registered worldwide trademark owned by Corporation Habanos S.A.
The Cohiba humidor (47 cm x 65,5 cm x 31 cm) was manufactured by atelier Elie Bleu in Paris. A gold standard for insiders.
The inner temperature of the cigar box can be managed remotely via smartphone or tablet, thanks to an app that is directly connected to a sensor placed inside the humidor. Each piece is numbered and its owner can have his name engraved on it.
Cubacigar Benelux S.A., with headquarters in Overijse (Belgium), is the importer and exclusive distributer in Benelux for all brands of Cuban cigars. Habanos sells them in Cuba and the rest of the world under 27 different brands, of which Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, Partagás, Hoyo de Monterrey, H. Upmann, etc.
