While there are certainly a few fat cigars to be found throughout the many versions of the non-Cuban Cohiba brand, only one has crossed over into gargantuan 70-ring gauge territory. General Cigar Co. has added the 7 x 70 to its Cohiba Blue line, and it’s the largest Cohiba the company has ever released. As the name suggests, it measures 7 inches long by 70 ring gauge and brings Cohiba Blue to six sizes. The humungous cigars are shipping to retailers this week.

With a suggested retail price of $15 each, these giant smokes come in 15-count boxes and are rolled with Honduran wrappers and binders, both from the Olancho San Agustín region of the country. The filler blend contains Honduran Jamastran, Nicaraguan Ometepe and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos.

Cohiba Blue

Made in the Dominican Republic at the General Cigar Dominicana factory, Cohiba Blue first came out in 2017 as a budget-friendly Cohiba. With Cohibas normally being quite expensive, the idea behind Cohiba Blue is affordable luxury.

The release of this cigar is a reflection of the market’s demand for thick cigars, which seems to show no sign of slowing.
