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 LLaguito 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. 

Tasting Notes

One of the best Havanas of the size range. A truly fine smoke, abundant and complex. The cocoa taste is sublime.


90 / 100

"...A floral and toasty Lonsdale with a piquant touch of pickled ginger. It's made with a flat head and three-seam cap..."

I asked a friend to bring me back some Siglo VI from his trip to Cuba and was somewhat disappointed when he turned up with Siglo V instead! Never send a boy to do a mans job! However, I thanked him profusely as never a hardship soking any Habana, but my first smoke was a disappointment. As other reviews, a very tight draw and I dont like to work that hard for my pleasures. I left them in my humidor for best part of a year and what a change has come over them. The draw is now perfect and provides one of the smoothest Cohiba experiences I have had. A really lovely, mild to medium experience from a well constructed, fragant and flavoursome smoke. Would I buy again? Probably not as I prefer a larger ring guage and theyre expensive at 30+ a pop. My latest favourite and REMARKABLE value is the Cuaba Distinguidos, if you havent tried one, add to your next order and I will be amazed if you disappointed.

I asked a friend to bring me a cigar or two back from Cuba (2016) and was somewhat disappointed to see a slim package in gift wrap. I left it in my den for several months before needing some cheering up in Spring 2017. Wow. Much fatter than I had expected and much longer - deceptive packaging. I enjoyed smoking it so much I looked to buy another in UK and was rocked by the price. Exorbitant tax I thought. I have tried several premium brands over the last few years and got fed up with the burn quality of Romeos. The burn even-ness of these two Silo V's was even and encouragingly gradual from first to last draw, a big "plus" for me. The initial flavour was somewhat muted but not unpleasant and by the end of the first inch it was decidedly pleasant and not harsh in any way. The olfactory ambience had that true Cuban ring of aroma and added to the joy. Feeling tight fisted, I have smoked the second cigar in three separate evening sittings on our patio, each equally pleasant and satisfyingly mitigating the cost. This cigar will always be hovering close to my top choice. A great choice.

Reviewed by Austin Dyer Last Christmas I visited some relatives in Northumberland as usual. My uncle had come over from America where he now lives and, to my delight, his gift to me was a fine box of Cohiba Siglo V which a friend of his bought while in Cuba. I was not sure about the legality of that but I did not care. They were in good condition, the box had been kept in a humi pouch bag, a great invention! That same evening after one of the finest, most delicious Christmas dinners I had ever eaten, I sat in the front room of the lovely country house, watching the snowflakes hovering about in the darkness outside and the warm, crackling, open fireplace beside me. I sipped some cognac and took a Siglo V. The construction was precise, no deformations, a completely smooth and very oily wrapper with a perfectly constructed triple cap. It felt a little harder than most Habanos I had smoked, this was due to a tight roll. The smell from it was sweet and earthy, and made my senses flare up. I could not wait to put flame to leaf. I carefully snipped the end, no problems. As the flame from the long match licked at the foot of this beauty the cool smoke began to ease out. The draw was tough, to my disappointment, as I prefer an easier draw. The smoke was very cool and mild bodied at first but slowly as the first inch drew along it became stronger and a lot of flavours began to emerge. A lot of cedar and nutty flavours in the first third, slowly becoming more earthy into the second third, but not quite so much as with some other Cohibas such as the Robusto. The cedar, nuts, scent remained and well into the second third hints of liquorice and coffee tasted me. The roast coffee bean was more prominent. The last third became a lot more spicy and hot, too hot for my liking, and to my disappointment I had to let this cigar die an honourable death. This cigar was full of flavours, but unfortunately the tight roll made drawing them out difficult and did spoil the enjoyment a little (do not smoke these if you are not up for a little sucking...ahem). To be fair, however, I did feel satisfied smoking this cigar. It lasted a good 2 hours and the flavours were wonderful. The room was filled with a rich, but not too oppressive, Cuban aroma of earthy, spicy tobacco. My uncle walked into the room (before I offered him one of these wonders) and just said "...that smells divine". It was a delicious cuban cigar (even if I did have to wrestle with the draw a little). Aesthetics: 25/25 Construction: 15/25 Flavour: 22/25 Overall Opinion: 23/25 Total: 85/100
