Cohiba Short Puritos
RM14.00 – RM15.00
A new premium cigarillo, the Cohiba Short, was launched in 2016 as part of Cohiba’s 50th Anniversary celebrations. It is the same length as a Cohiba Mini (3.25 inches or 82mm), but has a much larger ring gauge (29 vs 19). This means the Short contains almost 2.5 times as much premium Cuban tobacco as the Cohiba Mini, and smokes for approximately 15-20 minutes rather than 5-7. This fatter ring gauge also allows for a better draw and a much smoother smoke than any other Cohiba cigarillo.
Best of all, you don’t have to carry a carton around with you, as each cigarillo is individually wrapped in cellophane. You (and your fellow smokers) can be sure the smokes are authentic even when you buy loose sticks, because every one carries the famous Cohiba cigar band. This has to be the best machine-made smoke coming out of Cuba.
