cohibablackcoronapic1It's time once again for more reviews! This time we will take a look at Cohiba's Black Corona and the Cupido Criollo Commemorative. Without further adieu, let's take a look at the Cohiba Black Corona first.

Cohiba Black Corona

If you aren't familiar with the Cohiba brand name, perhaps you have been living under a rock. Perhaps the most revered name in the cigar industry, Cohiba began as a private supply to Mr. Fidel Castro himself, until it was released to the public in 1982. Only the best of the best was used to construct Cohibas, as only the top one percent of Cuban-grown leaves made their way into the brand's cigars.

The Cohiba Black is one of the younger lines from the industry icon, with its release occurring in 2006. Master Blender Daniel Nunez is the man in charge of its creation, and it follows the lead of the previously released Cohiba Red Dot line. The Black is also said to have a complex flavor profile that should appeal to many hobbyists.

The Cohiba Black Corona measures 5.5x42. It also comes in six other sizes: the 4.1x36 Pequenos, the 5.5x50 Robusto, the 5.75x48 Celebramos, the 6x54 Supremo, the 6x60 Gigante, and the 7x49 Churchill. Its filler is a mix of tobacco from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The Cohiba Black also uses a Dominican Piloto binder that is aged for three years. The cigar is finally topped off with a dark Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The Cohiba Black is handmade in Santiago, Dominican Republic and is considered to be full-bodied.

The most noticeable aspect of the Cohiba Black Corona's appearance is its very dark wrapper. In fact, the look of the cigar resembles its name pretty closely, as it almost its nearly black in color. The wrapper has many thin veins throughout its body and looks very oily under light. Feeling the Black Corona reveals that its packed very tightly. The decorative band near the head is simple yet adds a nice touch. The band displays the distinctive Cohiba label in a silver, black, and white color scheme. Taking a quick whiff of the cigar before lighting it gives off a peppery scent. The same goes for the cold taste, which is somewhat spicy.

this article overlooks the fact that Cohiba is a cuban brand ONLY.

this brand is riding off the name to sell it's product.
these are no where near the quality of the Cuban Cohiba.

please note Cuba recently won a court case regarding the usage of the name and brand "Cohiba"
