Cohiba Black Churchill Cigars
Cohiba Black Cigars are the creation of cigar master Daniel Nunez.
Blended in the Dominican Republic, Cohiba Black uses a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that gives it its dark appearance and bold flavor.
Paired to a blend of long-leaf Dominican and Mexican tobacco leaves and a Sun grown Dominican binder that account for the bold, flavorful and great looks of the Cohiba Black Churchill Cigars.

The Cohiba brand began in Cuba around 1960. It gained popularity and recognition of Fidel Castro who liked it so much that he helped with the initial production batches.
Castro himself recalled the tale in 1994:
“I used to see the man smoking a very aromatic, very nice cigar, and I asked him what brand he was smoking. He told me that it was a special blend, but that it came from a friend who makes cigars and he gave them to him. I said, let’s find this man. I tried the cigar, and I found it so good that we got in touch with him and asked him how he made it. Then we set up the house [the El Laguito factory], and he explained the blend of tobacco he used. He told which leaves he used from which tobacco plantations. He also told us about the wrappers he used and other things. We found a group of cigar makers. We gave them the material and that is how the factory was founded. Now Cohiba is known all over the world.”(Wikipedia)
In the U.S., the General Cigar Company registered the Cohiba name and began to produce their own version Cohibas, which prompted the Cuban government to sue the company in an attempt to block production. In an extended legal battle, the United States Supreme Court decided that General Cigar can continue manufacture and sales of the cigars, with a disclaimer showing that there are no relations between the brands.
This situation may change once the Cuban embargo begins to be lifted.
