There are Cohibas made in Cuba, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, and now, there’s even one that's rolled in Miami. The Cohiba Serie M is produced at the tiny El Titan de Bronze factory in Little Havana for General Cigar Co. While it's a limited edition, available in only one size, it represents a new chapter for the non-Cuban Cohiba brand. Across the Caribbean sea in Nicaragua, Rocky Patel reblended his Winter Collection and we rated the entire line in a vertical brand tasting. We also look at every size in the La Flor Dominicana Air Bender line. On the market for more than a decade, the Dominican brand still upholds its reputation for being full bodied, and one size in particular stood out from the others for its combination of power and grace. Plus, ratings of new sizes to the Avo, Micallef and New World Connecticut by A.J. Fernandez lines.
