Cohiba Cigars has revealed its first full-time new collection of cigars since the 2020 with the upcoming release of Cohiba Riviera, a six-region blend that features what Cohiba is calling “the very best of Central American tobacco.” This is the first Cohiba blend to use a Mexican San Andrés wrapper and the first to be presented as a box-press offering.

The Cohiba Riviera is named after the San Andrés Tuxtla Valley where the cigar’s wrapper was grown. This will be a three-cigar collection that is handcrafted in Nicaragua at STG Estelí. The Mexican San Andrés wrapper tops a Honduran-grown Connecticut binder and filler tobaccos that include proprietary Honduran Jamastran and Honduran La Entrada, as well as Nicaraguan Condega and Nicaraguan Estelí.

“Cohiba Riviera is a bold yet balanced blend of the most exceptional tobaccos from Nicaragua with exclusively-grown tobaccos from Honduras,” explains Cohiba’s brand ambassador Sean Williams. “[It is] Medium-to-full bodied and adorned with a delectable wrapper from Mexico, Riviera is an elegant selection offering notes of dark chocolate and coffee bean with a hint of leather and subtle cream on the finish. The experience of Cohiba Riviera is rich and rewarding and befitting of Cohiba’s status as an ultra-premium cigar brand.”

Cohiba Riviera will come in three sizes: Robusto, 5 x 52; Toro, 6 1/2 x 52; and Perfecto, 6 x 60. The suggested retail price per cigar will range from $19.99 to $23.99. It will come in 20-count boxes and is expected to ship to retailers in May 2023.
