London England, March 1st. This is a special edition commemorating the 50th anniversary of Cohiba. A unique and unrepeatable series of just 50 humidors with 50 Habanos each, all individually numbered. The vitola Cohiba 50 Aniversario (60 ring gauge x 178 mm length) is the first in the Habanos portfolio with a 60 ring gauge (23.80 mm). This edition is presented in an exclusive luxury cabinet, lined in authentic Cuban tobacco leaves covered in 24-carat gold, and is numbered and personalised with the owner's name.The 2500 Habanos in this edition have been made with the flavours that have been most characteristic of the brand over its five decades of existence, featuring a medium to full strength flavour.They have all been made Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga -Totally by Hand with Long Filler -in the near-mythical El Laguito factory in Havana, after a selection of exquisite wrapper, filler and binder leaves from the finest vegas – fields – in Vuelta Abajo* (D.O.P.)The Cohiba 50 Aniversario humidor is full of new ideas and fine detailing. The Habanos it contains have had a beautiful primary band designed in black and gold with the 50th anniversary seal, in which some characteristic elements from Cohiba, such as the grid, have been reinterpreted in an innovative way.This commemorative edition is presented in an exclusive luxury cabinet humidor, with production limited to only 50 units. The case is made of different precious woods, including Makassar ebony, sycamore and Guarea Cedrata or Scented Guarea. The innovative external marquetry decorating its doors is the result of a long process of experimentation, in which carefully selected authentic “ligero” Vuelta Abajo* leaves were coated with 24-carat gold leaf.The piece is a work of art and a unique collector's item, and has been a real challenge in terms of innovation both from the point of view of artisan decoration as well as technical development and design.The humidor has been made by the firm Elie Bleu. Each humidor will be numbered (01 to 50) and personalised with the owner's name, and each buyer will also receive a certificate of ownership and authenticity issued by Habanos S.A.In addition, following the innovative profile of the Cohiba brand and this project, this cabinet features a device that allows its owner to follow the temperature and humidity conditions in the humidor directly on their smartphone or tablet.Cohiba 50 Aniversario Humidors on auctionThe cabinet humidor numbered 01 was auctioned at the traditional humidor auction concluding the XVIII Habanos Festival Gala Evening, with which has managed to raise 320,000 euros (£246,400).
