    I smoked one of these in Cozumel, Mexico last week while lounging around the pool at the resort I was staying at. A gentleman asked me if I had another. I did and offered it to him. The next evening I ran into him again at the resort’s bar. He said he really enjoyed the Cuba Libre and then he gave me a sealed box of Habanos Cuba Selectos containing a Cohiba, a Trinidad, a Portagas, a Romeo Y Julieta, and a Montecristo. I was floored! We shared another cigar, several drinks, a couple of girls, and a few tales of life experiences that evening. I never saw him again after that.

    I found information about these cigars here http://www.habanos.com/article.aspx?aid=608

    Cohiba:
    Cohiba is made from the “selection of the selection” of the best leaves of the tobacco plantations of San Juan y Martínez (D.O.P) and San Luis (D.O.P) areas in the Vuelta Abajo zone* (D.O.P), the additional fermentation of the Ligero and Seco leaves provide unique aroma and flavor. Cohiba is the Habanos flagship.

    Montecristo:
    Montecristo is the best known Habanos brand and probably the most appreciated by its characteristic medium to full flavor, considered by many smokers a benchmark for flavor.

    Romeo y Julieta:
    Romeo y Julieta Habanos are characterized by its balanced and aromatic blend. It is the classic medium flavour Habano

    Partagás:
    A Partagás is immediately recognizable by its deep character and rich flavour.

    Trinidad:
    Trinidad, as a Habano, dates back to 1969 but for many years, like Cohiba, it was made only for gifts to foreign diplomats. Not until 1998 was it released for general sale and then only in small quantities.
