Review Notes: A friend pointed out that I had been particularly harsh regarding my reviews of Cohiba products. I'm trying to be more positive. My main problem with an ultra-premium cigar like this is the cost. If I'm going to pay $10 a stick and up then I'm expecting much more for my money. This Cohiba was dark, smelled great, and cut easily with a firm draw. There was a noticeable pepper taste that disappeared after an inch was burned. The burn was very good and never needed a touch-up. The initial pepper taste was appealing however it turned into a fairly average tobacco taste quickly. Not much depth of flavor, a medium bodied, nice burning stick that was nothing to write home about. My specimen had about six months of age on it. Maybe I need to try it while it is fresh instead of allowing the stick to mature with age.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (7) No (12)
