Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos. 

It was created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro himself and was made at the then top secret, but now world famous, El Laguito factory. At first, it was only seen outside Cuba as gifts for heads of state and visiting diplomats. 

Since 1982 Cohiba has been available in limited quantities to the open market. 

The name is an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves that Columbus first saw being smoked by the original inhabitants of Cuba - the earliest known form of a Habano. 

The leaves for Cohiba are the "selection of selection" from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone. 

Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba's filler leaves , the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba. 

The Linea Maduro 5 series consists of three sizes each wrapped in a dark maduro leaf which has been specially aged for five years, this line by Cohiba was launched in 2007. 

Tasting Notes

A half corona size cigar. What makes these cigars so special lies in the number 5, which flags the five-year aging process to which all their wrappers are subjected.

----

91 / 100

"...A lot of creamy smoke comes off the draw of this petit corona. There's a tasty interplay of pepper, coffee, cedar and hazelnut..."

Of the 20 or so Cuban cigars Ive tried so far this is by far my favourite. It has a gorgeous dark oily wrapper and just looks and smokes perfectly. I wont try and described the flavour as that seems such a subjective activity, just to say that I find it sublime. I plan to have at least one of these a week for the foreseeable.

This was my second Cohiba Maduro, and after failing to tame the larger Genios I was apprehensive. As soon as I picked it up it felt special, this was a very strong firm cigar in the fingers. The toasting took a long time, but I wanted to make sure it was fully and evenly lit. This may have paid off, as I only had one relight and minimal management. I really enjoyed it, but it does pack a punch and you need to keep puffing or it will stop burning at the drop of a hat.

Wow! She looks incredible with that beautiful, aged, dark wrapper and opens with some punchy peppery flavours. Then she settles down into delicious chocolate and the final third ends with some seriously creamy textures. The aromas are incredible all the way through, and has left my lips tingling and slightly light headed and absolutely wanting more. A must smoke cigar!

The single worst cigar I have smoked to date. Terrible draw having to constantly re-light. At the end of all the re-lighting you are rewarded with the most wonderful bland and dull taste. Definitely worth trying to make you appreciate how good your current favourite cigar really is. Cohiba should do a blind taste test with this cigar and listen very carefully to the feedback.

Inch for inch, this was the priciest smoke in my humidor and I had been very much looking forward to it. What a disappointment! First, the draw was so tight I was struggling to get much through it. I rolled it around and got it loosened up a bit, but it never quite produced the easy draw and large volumes of smoke I was anticipating. Next, it wouldn’t hold its ash, and it wouldn’t stay lit. I had to relight it three times and after it went out a fourth time I lost the will to try again, with still about an inch to go. Looking at the other reviews, perhaps I was unlucky with the construction of this one. However, overall, this was a very disappointing smoke. I did occasionally encounter the Cohiba flavours I had been looking forward to, but it fell well short of my expectations and I will have to think hard about whether to invest this much again in another one any time soon.
