I have never bought into the hype of Cohiba, and with a hefty price tag (even a single is typically more than $10), it’s certainly not a layman’s cigar. So, when I got one as part of a sampler purchase, I was intrigued.
Though I resolved to go into the smoke without any preconceived notions, it, sadly, only confirmed my years of being a “hold-out.”
The construction is poor, the draw tight, the ash hold nearly non-existent. The taste was quite pleasant, however, and the stick generated an ample amount of thick, white smoke. The burn was slow and steady.
In the end, I don’t see myself getting any more of these ‘gars. But, as mentioned earlier, Cohiba is not (and wasn’t meant to be) a layman’s cigar. In that regard, perhaps we can agree to part ways as acquaintances.
