Cohiba Behike Starts Hitting the Markets



With huge expectations and the most enthusiastic acclaim by those who cherished it in the course of the 12th Habano Festival, the new Cohiba Behike line –the most exclusive Habanos S.A. has ever launched- is now trickling into the markets with its three sizes: BHK 52, BHK 54 and BHK 56.

The blend of this extremely limited production’s three vitolas is adding for the first time a tobacco leaf called medio tiempo that chips in its exceptional character and taste.



Each and every one of the Cohiba Behike habanos boasts a ring that features a couple of security holograms.

Penciled in as “Cohiba’s best-kept secret,” the Cohiba Behike will come out every year with Cuba’s finest tobacco from the San Juan y Martinez (GOO) and San Luis (GOO) plantations out of Vuelta Abajo (GOO), rolled at the mystic El Laguito cigar factory in extremely limited quantities. Its blend adds for the first time ever the medio tiempo, a tobacco leaf that provides exceptional character and taste to this habano.

  • BHK 52:    ring gauge 52 (20.64 mm) x 119mm long    Factory vitola: Laguito No. 4
