Sunday afternoon in a frozen back garden in NI I decided to have a post Christmas treat complimented with a mulled wine, I have to say that it was the first time I had one of these Especiales and have to say it was absolutely delightful. It had a superb drag with little effort and burned evenly. Taste of dark chocolate with that smooth and slightly mild, pleasantness that only Cohibas bring. My last cigar was a partagas no4 and it was a bit more work so this was satisfying. I was surprised that for its length it didn't last as long as I thought but perhaps that was just me enjoying its goodness. I will definitely be having one of these again very soon. Thanks Cgars ltd

Castro's favourite and I can see why. Although the draw feels tight the burn is even and its light yet creamy smoke plentiful enough for you to get over this. As far as flavour goes, this cigar exibits the typical Cohiba spice but with a much sweeter chocolate note than in any other Cohiba I've tried. Earthy coffee flavours become prominent after the first 1/3 (following the chocolate 'topping' its like the cappucinno of cigars!). I'd love to be able to say that this is a perfect every day smoke, however at £16 a stick, I'm not that flush... still, this will go down as a firm favourite (hopefully the one I've left in the humidor will be even better).

Quite a reasonable smoke though it last a lot longer than the Exquisitos I find the latter much more enjoyable.
