1. Cohiba (Length 5 inches  42 Gauge) A new brand which was introduced only in 1968, Cohiba quickly became the flagship brand of the Cuban cigar industry. Developed initially as a medium bodied protocol cigar for presentation only by officials of the Cuban government, Cohiba was marketed widely beginning in 1982. In 1992, in salute to the 500th anniversary of Columbus' discovery of the Caribbean, the Siglo series was introduced. The Cohiba series was initially made in the El Laguito factory in Havana, but production is now also in the Fernando Perez German factory. This is a medium bodied and full flavoured cigar.

2. Romeo y Julieta (Length 4.5 inches 42 Guage) Developed in 1875 by Inocencio Alvarez and Mannin Garcia originally for local consumption, this brand immediately showed its quality by winning gold medals in four universal expositions between 1885 and 1900. But it really took off after its acquisition in 1903 by Jose Rodriguez Fernandez, known as Pepin. Named for the lovers in William Shakespeare's tragedy of the same name, the brand also is traditionally credited with the introduction of the Churchill shape in honour of the British statesman Winston Churchill (note the name of the factory shape for this size: the Julieta 2). The full-flavoured Romeo y Julieta brand is one of the most widely known and appreciated in the world today. They are generally medium to full-bodied with rich complex flavours.

3. Bolivar (Length 5.5 inches 42 Gauge) Introduced in 1901, the powerful flavour of the Bolivar range is almost as widely known as it's namesake, Simon Bolivar (1783-1830), the celebrated Venezuelan warrior who liberated all or part of what today is Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Bolivia. The cigar brand was developed by the Jose Fernandez Roig, was trademarked in 1921 and was made by J.F. Roig y Cia, until nationalization. This is a full bodied and tasty cigar. For beginners, a heavy cigar like Bolivar is not a good choice.

4. Montecristo Length 6 inches 42 Gauge) The most famous of the many famous Havana brands started only in 1935 as a new brand from Menendez, Garcia y Cia., then the owners of the H. Upmann brand. This is the best selling Cuban cigar in the world, accounting for approximately half of Cuba's total production. The name is reported to have been inspired by Alexandre Dumas' 1844 novel Le Comte de Monte Cristo. With a strong marketing effort from Alfred Dunhill of London, this brand became the most popular of all Havana exports and is the standard by which all other Havanas are now judged. Montecristo's are rich medium-bodied cigars with aromatic flavour and a distinctive peppery finish.
