cohiba-black Two flavorful cigars are on the menu for today’s reviews here on Puff.com. Up first is the Cohiba Black Supremo, which will be followed by the Hoyo de Monterrey Churchill Maduro.

Cohiba Black Supremo

The Dominican Cohiba Black line first made its way onto the market in 2006 as another addition to the brand’s portfolio of cigars that are legal to purchase in the United States. Bold in appearance, the Black was created by Daniel Nuñez and is said to be smooth and complex. For this particular review I will be sampling the Supremo size, so let’s get started.

The Cohiba Black Supremo measures 6 x 54. Other sizes in the line include the 4 3/16 x 36 Pequeño, 5 ½ x 42 Corona, 5 ½ x 50 Robusto Crystal, 6 x 60 Gigante, and the 7 x 49 Churchill. The cigar’s components begin with a Dominican Piloto Cubano filler. Both the binder and wrapper are Connecticut Broadleaf. As far as strength is concerned, the Cohiba Black is generally listed as falling into the medium-bodied category.

 

Right off the bat, I notice the very dark, almost black wrapper of the Cohiba Black Supremo, so General Cigar was definitely on the mark with the moniker they chose for this line. The classy and subtle band adds a nice touch with its silver and black color scheme that features the famous Cohiba name. Getting back to the cigar itself, the wrapper has a good amount of oil and only minimal veining. The appearance is smooth overall while giving off a rustic aura. The cigar feels firm to the touch, but strays from being as hard as a brick. I notice a pre-light scent and cold taste of chocolate that have me yearning to light the Supremo quickly.

The Cohiba Black Supremo lights with no trouble at all and offers a superb burn. No touch-ups or re-lights are needed, so I have no complaints here. The draw is neither too tight nor too easy once things get rolling, although it was a tad tight at the beginning. A nice volume of aromatic smoke is produced throughout the slow burn. The ash is solid and white in color.
