What You Need to Know About Weller by Cohiba
Cohiba has been around for a long time and it is a well-known and respected name in the cigar industry. It is also known for producing high-quality cigars. When it comes to Weller cigars, you should know that they are true Honduras cigars and certainly make a great departure from the best Dominican cigars.
The measurements of this cigar are 6 1/2 x 50 which is a Traditional Toro Size. So, it isn't too large but isn't too small either, although it certainly leans on the larger side of cigars. Because of its larger size, you can expect to smoke this cigar for quite a long time, perhaps an hour or more.
The wrapper for this cigar is not a traditional maduro wrapper but rather a Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. This kind of wrapper comes from the very top of the tobacco plant and, as a result, this kind of leaf gets the most sun exposure. As a result, a Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper is known for being one of the strongest cigar wrappers around.
Again, Weller is not a cigar for beginners but rather for those looking to try a strong and intense cigar. If you buy this cigar, you'll find that great care is taken when it comes to hand-rolling and packaging them. These cigars usually come in boxes of 10 cigars each, wrapped in a glass tube with a unique and distinctive flavor profile coming from Weller Tobacco Profile: USA Broadleaf - Aged in Weller Bourbon Barrels and Piloto Cubano, Honduran Jamastran, Honduran La Estrada, Honduran OSA, Nicaragua Esteli Ligero and Viso.
Each of these cigars comes in its own individual glass tubes. The glass helps seal the smell and potency of the tobacco and the aroma inside the cigar. Also, keep in mind that the Weller cigar is the result of a cigar collaboration between Cohiba and a liquor company, specifically Sazerac.
