Cohiba Talismán Appears—With Pigtail

Cuba’s first Edición Limitada of 2017, the Cohiba Talismán, made its debut today in London. The big, dark cigars had a bit of a surprise—pigtail heads.

When Talismán was announced in February at the Habanos Festival, art for the new Cohiba showed a picture-perfect mounted head. But there’s always a long delay—typically several months—between the Cuba preview and marketplace appearance for new Cuban cigars, and this year when the finished cigars arrived in London they had pigtails.

Habanos had no comment when asked why the change had been made.

In London, a single Talismán retails for £65 ($85) and a box of 10 sells for £600 ($784). The cigars, which measure 6 1/8 inches long by 54 ring, were rolled at Cuba’s famed El Laguito Factory, according to Habanos S.A. They are slated to go on sale worldwide soon after this British debut.

The other two 2017 Limitadas—the Punch Regios de Punch (4 3/4 by 48) and the Partagás Serie No. 1 (5 1/2 by 52) are expected later.
