The Talisman is a heavy ring gauge Habano, in line with the brand’s latest launches and is distinguished by a medium to full strength flavour, characteristic of the Línea Clásica blend and which stands out for its elegant and charismatic “pigtail” finish. This Limited Edition’s leaves have been aged for over two years, awarding this extraordinary Habano a complex and highly aromatic character.

Overview: Cohiba Talisman Limited Edition 2017
The Cohiba Talisman Limited Edition 2017 is an incredibly exciting release, only the seventh limited edition from this legendary brand. A Cañonazo Doble, measuring in at 155mm with a 54 gauge, this powerhouse is one of the largest Cohibas ever made and has combined iconic details from their existing ranges to create this extraordinary cigar.
The filler leaves are the classic Cohiba blend of Volado, Seco, Ligero leaves and the revered Medio Tiempo leaf, all aged for a minimum of 2 years, but the fermentation and aging process continues for the seco and ligero leaves for an additional 18 months, and occurs inside cedar barrels.
The Talisman is hand rolled in the famous El Laguito factory, using the Dark Maduro leaf which grows at the very top of shade grown plants, requiring additional ageing and fermentation over 5 years to reach the color dark enough to be classified as Maduro which adds a sweetness to the flavour. Previously the Maduro leaf wrap was used exclusively by Cohiba for their Maduro 5 range, the finishing touch is the pigtail cap that adds a dash of whimsy to this fine specimen, normally only found on the Behike series.
A beautiful aroma greeted us, delicious notes of cinnamon and vanilla with touches of cedar. The thick luxurious smoke Cohiba is known for begins immediately, and the flavour comes out with a bang. We found rich caramel mingled with espresso and earthy notes of wood and herbs while the aromas carry into accenting flavours. Talisman begins at a medium strength but moves up to a full by the middle and offers a touch of salt at the finish that came just under the 2 hour mark.
Even though the Talisman is young and will respond well to some time to rest in your humidor, it is certainly not necessary due to the aging process of the individual components. They are offered exclusively in a slide lid box of 10.
