Cohiba goes full-tilt, full body and leaves the DR behind to do it. The goal? Blend a Nicaraguan that smokes Cohiba-rich; and boy, have they hit the mark. Clad in oily Honduran sun grown Oscuro, this proprietary Cohiba blend is lush to the core making for a spicy, feisty boldness, but still surprises with a touch of sweet. And in classic Cohiba style, the Nicaragua smokes cool and creamy to the finish. Already extravagant, this smoke corners the market on decadent - buy your box and dig in.
Classy packaging....a little soft and squishy....maybe a bit overpriced, but I ll buy it again. If you like full cigars, you ll probably like these. All in all, an enjoyable smoke.
I m still pretty new to cigars but one thing I ve learned already is, don t put too much stock in what reviewers say. :- That said, here goes: There are a lot of cigars out there I have yet to smoke, so maybe there are nicer experiences than this, but I enjoy these as a semi-special treat. I get a mild darkly sweetish, dried cherry sort of flavor which I really like. I have tried the N6X60 and these N5X50 crystal. I prefer the smaller vitola because they seem to burn better and the sealed glass holds the flavor and moisture they left the factory with. I will keep trying other cigars but will keep a box of these in the coolidor.
