Cigar Aficionado has him ranked as No. 3, behind Churchill and Kennedy. Cohiba cigars were his favorite, but because of health reasons, he gave up cigars at the age of 59, back in 1985. In 2008, he resigned as President of Cuba. Although he is now gone for good, he will still remain a symbol of Cuban Communism and of course, cigars.
