Cohiba cigarettes were created by Habanos S.A. of Cuba to diversify from its notable cigar brand names and are currently manufactured by the Franco-Spanish company Altadis, and hence a sub-section of British tobacco group Imperial Tobacco. Production of Cohiba cigarettes began in 1987 in Cuba as a joint venture between Habanos, S.A., and Cita Tobaccos de Canarias, S.L.. They are made entirely of a blend of Cuban black leaf tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region. Cohiba cigarettes are called cigarillos negros (black cigarettes) and known for their very strong flavour.

The design of the Cohiba cigarette box is easily recognizable as it emulates the design of the Cohiba cigar logo.

Cohiba Cigarillos Negros are available in duty-free shops around the world and in Mexico and other countries.

Nicotine content: 0.9 mg/cigarette Tar: 12.0 mg/cigarette
