Pretty good cigar.

We can say that this "little guy", COHIBA Siglo I, is perfectly fine. It is well built, beautiful and well presented, with pleasant flavours that provide a pleasant time, not for a Sunday afternoon, but for a daily after-dinner drink. But? The price is high, we won't deny it, but it's entirely up to you to decide if it's worth the money.

It was the end of a long week and the weather was, in typical British fashion, nicely mild. And so it was that I decided to unwind from work with a cigar and a beer. The beer selected was Black Sheep’s Riggwelter; a strong, dark Yorkshire ale. And the cigar was a Cohiba Siglo I; a tres petit corona. With an advertised smoking time of twenty minutes (that I stretched out to around forty-five) it seemed ideal to pair with my chosen beverage.
The first third was light and smooth, with toasted notes starting to develop as we continued into the second third. Initially the burn was a little uneven, but it had sorted itself out by the time we hit that second third. Unfortunately, as the burn got more even the drawer became tighter. By the time we get to the final third, I’m having to suck on this stick like a pacifier. Which is a shame, because in the final third this Cohiba really comes alive. The subtle spice that’s been developing is now full-on peppery.
Overall this cigar is much like a horse: the front is friendly and inviting, the middle is crafty and the back end will kick you in the face if you’re not careful. There’s some good flavours here, it’s just a shame you have to smoke most of the cigar to get to them.

579. Cohiba Siglo I

2020-12-12/ ANDREDIAS95

Supplied by Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Cuba
Binder: Cuba
Filler: Cuba

Size: 4×40, Perlas (Petit Corona).

Wrapper: Nutty, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Cedarwood and floral.

1st third: Starts with a toasted bread, light floral note and light wood.

2nd third: Hints of white pepper and some honey sweetness lingering on the tongue while keeping the previous flavours.

Burn: Burns fairly sharp and hasty with a firm and stable gray ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a medium cool feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.

3rd third: No changes from previous parts.

Duration: 22:15-22:55, 40 min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a mild strength profile. Well balanced with some spice to it, but overall a good cigar for someone who wants to traverse the gap from mild to medium bodied cigars.

Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
