General Cigar is releasing a high-end Cohiba that will be available at Duty Free locations and select cigar shops across the U.S. This Double Corona (7.25” x 54) cigar is housed in a soft-touch red and matte silver box containing ten cigars. C8 is presented in a briefcase containing an ST Dupont cutter and lighter. Only 50 Cohiba C8 travel sets have been created, for sale at U.S. Duty Free locations and cigar shops, beginning this week.
Cohiba C8 release will be available for a suggested retail price of $2,499.99.
This cigar is described by Cohiba as having “layers of earth, nuts and wood are balanced with a hint of caramel and whisper of sweetness. The finish cascades to light spice and pepper.”
