Review Notes: I only like small cigars when they're fairly exceptional and this one seems to be just that. It really looks nice and seems to be firm without either being big or box pressed. So for a small size it still feels O.K. in hand. Now on to the taste because appearances can be fine while the smoke itself isn't. This one lit easy and seemed just a little tight as it got going. Right away I liked the taste. It was smooth and had a woody chocolatey taste and finished clean with a sweetness that I liked. I do not like cigars that have a prominent front sweetness because it's as if the wrapper is artificially infused with a sweet flavor that was not natural to the tobacco. This sweetness was spot on. It was on the back end and it was not to prominent meaning it was just a product of the best seed, soil, and aging. About a third in I needed to correct the burn. No problem since it was small ringed. The taste was consistently good as it burned and at about the final quarter I again corrected the burn just a wee bit. From here it remained nice and I removed the label and litterally smoked it to the nub actually stopping only when my finger started getting uncomfortably hot! Cohiba has a winner here. Perhaps the roll is a bit tight, but it did not significantly interfere with a delightful smoke. I really only like two small cigars I've tried, the Padron Maduro '64 Principe' and Maduro '26 No. 35. They're the best rolled small cigars this reviewer has ever tried. They are also two of the best blends for my tastes. Now I can add another small cigar to my list as the Cuban Cohiba Secretos Maduros are different and extremely tasty

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (9) No (10)
