The highly sought after Cohiba Talismán EL 2017 is arguably the most successful Limited Edition ever launched by Habanos SA. Globally launched on November 8th 2017 in London, UK, it was so successful that its production continued all the way through to 2019. It is therefore possible to come across both 2017 and 2019 box codes. Among Cohiba aficionados, the Cohiba Talisman it is possibly the most appreciated Cuban cigar today.
All limited editions from Habanos come with tobacco leaves that are aged for at least two years. So, what’s special about the leaves used in this cigar? Well, being a Cohiba cigar, the leaves undergo a famous 'third fermentation' in wooden barrels which contribute to the unmistakable Cohiba flavour. That is smoother and has well-rounded subtle flavours. The Talisman is wrapped up to form a 154mm by a 54 ring gauge smoke.
We highly recommend this cigar both as something to smoke immediately or to age for a few years before being enjoyed.

Too inconsistent for the price.
Can by too tightly rolled. Inconsistent smoke. Unacceptable for this price. Amazing when draw is good.
I bought three, Two are fantastic the other one blocked
Still very young – indeed, if you can hold them for another five to ten years, you will be more than amply rewarded – they are finely balanced and with an array of flavors. It is only when one is about a third in that the caramel comes through in lashings. Instagram account @eihcirichie
Great smoke that if done right and enjoyed it should take around two hours to smoke. It increases in strength as you progress through it and it is very flavorful with notes ranging from cedar and nuts to coffee and bittersweetness.
