cohiba_churchill1 Today we are focusing on a pair of cigars from General Cigar Company, beginning with the Cohiba Churchill and ending with the Partagas Serie S Perfecto.

Cohiba Churchill

For this review, I will not be sampling the famous Cuban version of the famous Cohiba brand, although I would certainly love to. Instead, I will be giving the United States-legal Dominican “Red Dot” version a try. Will it match the hype that goes along with its Cuban version? I doubt it, but I am expecting some good things here, so let’s light up a Cohiba Churchill and put it under the review microscope.

The Cohiba Churchill measures 7 x 49. Cohiba offers the Dominican line in a plethora of other sizes, ranging from the 3 7/8 x 24 Miniatures all the way up to the 7 x 49 Churchill which is the focus of this review. The cigar has a filler blend of Dominican Piloto Cubano tobacco. The binder is of the Indonesian Jember variety, and a special Cameroon wrapper tops it all off. In terms of strength, the Cohiba Churchill is listed as falling somewhere between the medium and full-bodied categories.

The first thing I notice when looking at the Cohiba Churchill is its long and slender shape. A nice band sits near the head that displays the Cohiba name with a red dot inside of the O. Republica Dominicana is also stamped on the band to let you know which version you are smoking. The cigar itself has a rather veiny appearance and a medium-brown wrapper with a bit of oil. The cigar feels firm to the touch and has zero soft spots. Overall, the construction appears to be solid. Before lighting, there’s a sweet aroma and a spicy cold taste.

Once lit, the Cohiba Churchill burns without any issues. The draw is just right. There’s plenty of thick aromatic smoke and the cigar burns slowly. The burn stays even from beginning to end without the need for touchups. There are also no re-lights. The ash is solid and has a beautiful white color that contrasts nicely with the dark wrapper. We are good to go in this department.
