Make no bones about it, I am a Cohiba Fan. I love the traditional Cohiba flavour within a cigar. I also find that out of a box of 25 Robustos, 50% will be absolutely amazing, bursting with this Cohiba note. And the remainder overly spicy and lacking flavour. I find myself still buying the boxes though. I tend to get home from work or the gym quite late in the evening, dinner is usually after 8pm and on certain nights, it’s nice to get away from the TV and head out to the shed and the old deckchair. However these late finishes to the day mean that quite often I need a cigar to be reasonably small, ( 45-1hr smoke ). This is an issue for the Cohiba fan who like a thick heavy ring gauge.
Enter the Medio Siglo: 52 ring gauge and 4 inches in length. This is essentially a Petit Robusto. A vitola which is gaining popularity for its thick ring, and a reduced length, over the traditional Robusto. I currently have Romeo petit Churchill’s in my humidor, along with the Hoyo De Monterray Petit Robusto’s so I am a genuine mid week evening fan of the Vitola. Add the Cohiba flavours and BOOM. Magnificent! This is by far the best Petit Robusto I have ever smoked. The burn started off fantastically well but started to go off course some way into about 25 mins into the stick, but who cares. Corrected it with the torch and continued on. Wrapper = lovely, smooth oily deep brown and chocolaty.
Will I be buying a box of these, your dam right! This smoke is nothing short of sublime. I even found the strength and body slightly fuller than the traditional Cohiba Robusto’s which is in my top 3 favoured cigars of all time.
If you get a chance, and like a good thick short smoke .Try this cigar. As long as you don’t mind medium to full body smokes, this will blow you away!
