Cohiba Espléndidos, Cuban Cigar Information
The Crown Jewel in the Cohiba range, the Esplendidos has been for many years the brand's flagship Cigar.
New Behike band
In September 2014, boxes of Cohiba Espléndidos arrived at various retailers around the world sporting the new Cohiba Behike band. It seems that boxes with the box code of ARG MAY 14 have these bands. I've been told by Rob Ayala that other Cohiba boxes with an April 2014 box codes that carry the old bands. Putting all this information together, it looks as if the stock of old bands are finally running out and going forward all new Cohibas coming out of Cuba will have the Cohiba Behike hologram band.
Due to the reputation and elegance surrounding the Cohiba Esplendidos, fakes are abundant, especially in Cuba itself.
