The Cohiba Black Supremo continues to impress as we move into the flavor department. There are plenty of flavors to be enjoyed that keep my palate entertained. Sweetness kicks off the festivities and is soon joined by tasty chocolate. The second third continues with the sweetness and chocolate and adds spice to the equation. The final third brings back some spice and finishes things off with wood and cocoa.

The Cohiba Black Supremo is a great example of why the Cohiba name has been able to achieve a solid reputation. No, this wasn’t a Cuban Cohiba, but it did not matter in the end. The cigar looked good and tasted even better while exhibiting superb construction. There was never a dull moment during the entire smoking experience thanks to the various flavors which made me wish that the cigar would never end. Unfortunately, the Cohiba Black is pricy at around $11 per single. At that price point, it is hard to make it a frequent smoke, but I would definitely purchase one to enjoy on a special occasion when you want something smooth and flavorful. If you can find it on sale, pick up a pack of five or a box of 25.

The Cohiba Black Supremo earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Hoyo de Monterrey Churchill Maduro


The Hoyo de Monterrey Churchill Maduro that I will be studying today is part of the brand’s original line. This Honduran cigar is said to be full-flavored and complex, so I am anticipating a very enjoyable smoking experience. Enough with the intro, let’s move on to the details of what this Churchill has to offer.

The Hoyo de Monterrey Churchill Maduro measures 6 1/4 x 45. There are a ton of other sizes and variations in the line, ranging from the 3 7/8 x 38 Demitasse to the 8 ½ x 52 President. The Churchill Maduro’s filler is a combination of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The binder is Honduran, and a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper tops it all off. Other wrapper offerings in the original Hoyo de Monterrey line include the Double Maduro and Dark Ecuadorian Sumatra, just to name a couple. Strength-wise, the Churchill Maduro seems to be listed as full-bodied.
