Showcased in February at this year’s Habanos Festival in Havana, the three new Cohiba Behike sizes have been eagerly awaited ever since by cigar enthusiasts around the world. The Cuban cigar industry has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that this new line is special in every way. Not only are all the three sizes entirely new, but there is also a special classification of leaf within the blend of the filler, known as Medio Tiempo, which gives the new line a unique, distinctive taste. The natural scarcity of Medio Tiempo leaves dictates that annual production of these cigars will be restricted. The Behike BHKs are set to become Cohiba’s most exclusive line and to represent the highest grade of cigar in production in Cuba today.

The three Cohiba Behike sizes are:

BHK 56 – 6 ½ inches (166mm) x 56 ring gauge

BHK 54 – 5 5/8 inches (144mm) x 54 ring gauge

BHK 52 – 4 ¾ inches (119mm) x 52 ring gauge
