The Cohiba Extra Vigoroso 550 is a Robusto-size cigar made with a very full-flavored blend of extra-aged ligero long filler draped in a dark, specially-aged Ecuadorian grown Sumatra wrapper. A real powerhouse with a complex, well-rounded finish that's ideal for after dinner.

Occasionally, I will treat myself to what I would not normally be able to afford. Such is the case with the Cohiba XV. I bought a 5-pack a few months ago as a favor to myself and in no was I disappointed. This is a top-shelf cigar, very potent and jam-packed with exotic tobacco flavor. It seemed that every puff held a different flavor surprise. In a quick phrase: "I loved it!" My only issue with the cigar was that the cap on one of them came completely off in my mouth shortly after lighting it. I suspect this was a one-of-a-kind happening because none of the others displayed that problem. I did notice that the cap left a dark stain on my lip and finger. Again, the problem was limited to only one stick. This construction issue was in no way a put-off. I recommend this cigar very highly. It will always be a special-occasion cigar in my humidor.less

This is an excellent smoke especially when paired with red wine. By far, one of the smoothest cigars on the market.less

This has got to be my favorite smoke. Rich, smooth and luscious. I've seen reviews about a hard draw but a few gentle bites around the head loosen it right up. They're a bit pricey but I think they're worth it.less

The BTUs I expended trying to draw on these cigars left me exhausted and angry that I squandered such a considerable sum (and high expectations) on these pigs. A good cigar is not supposed to be an ordeal!less
