COHIBA CONNOISSEUR COLLECTION IS A REAL DEAL

New York, NY—Holiday shoppers will get much more than they bargained for this year, thanks to the soon-to-be-released Cohiba® Connoisseur Collection, a handsome holiday gift pack that will be available at select tobacco retail stores beginning in early November.

Ideal for the leaf lover on every holiday shopper’s list, the Cohiba Connoisseur Collection features three Cohiba Lonsdale Grande cigars (6 ¼” x 47), and a limited edition, Cohiba-branded XiKAR® Xi2 cutter. The items come displayed together, in a specially-designed mahogany gift box.

An exceptional value, the Cohiba Connoisseur Collection gift pack will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.98.

Bill Chilian, director of marketing for Cohiba comments, “When it comes to holiday shopping for a cigar lover, the Cohiba Connoisseur Collection gift pack makes a perfect gift because the Cohiba name is synonymous with quality and good taste. We expect that the Connoisseur Collection will not only be a fast-seller among gift buyers, but also among cigar smokers who want to treat themselves with an affordable splurge this holiday season.”

No, I am not kidding. I have smoked a number of the Dom. Cohibas and have found them all to be lacking in flavor. complexity, construction, etc. This , However is just my opinion. I also have found the real Cohibahs to be an excellant cigar but in my opinion very over priced. IMHO.

Tom, DR Cohibas are not as good as their Cuban counterparts but they are in no way a bad cigar. They are still one of the better cigars on the market. Of course everyone is entitled to his or her opinion and maybe for you they aren't very good. The majority opinion would not agree with you though.

Calibus, I don't see Cohibas on your list of cigars you are currently smoking.
No, I don't believe the majority opinion is against me.
Actually I am not a fan of any of the products of General Cigar. They have a large following but I am not one of them. Truth in advertising is one of my pet peeves. I guess this was what pushed my button the other day.

I wasn't trying to be argumentative. What I meant is just that most people wouldn't agree that they are crappy.
