For the newbie like yours truly, this comes into the upper bracket of “worth the extra and you must try”. Unusually for this nature of traditional upsell, the cigar delivered. Wonderful flavours, beautiful draw/burn and a delightful 40 mins ran by with this lovely cigar in hand. Give it a go.

The perfect cross between the aficionado size and the large ring gauge current trends.

A great 50-60 minute smoke which can be enjoyed anytime but try to avoid any Cohiba on an empty stomach.

Starts of beautifully, great construction and the feel is true Cohiba.

It starts off beautifully, typical creamy Cohiba, develops a mild spice and finishes off like a sweet dream. I’m never satisfied with just one and crave for more.

Don’t get deterred by the price {hike}, its worth it.

If you have the patience and age it, anything 3 years and older, is like the difference between slow cooked and pressure cooked food.

The flavors blend in so beautifully with age. The fermentation and integration of the leaves makes it even better.

My second favorite Siglo after the Siglo VI, and among my top 10 all time cigars.

It’s a Cohiba Robusto! So it can’t do anything wrong. Like that annoying sibling - whatever new atrocity it commits, everyone coos and clucks over it, ignoring you with your better flavours, easier draw and frankly lower price. That’s how I think other cigars think of the Cohiba Robusto.
When I offer cigars around to friends at home, I almost draw a thin pencil line through the names of those who pick the CoRo since it shows the worst of brand consciousness with a lack of taste for anything else in my humidor (of which there are most things so you don’t be that person if the chance arises).
I never find them drawing especially well and the burn, about which I care very little, in this case actually does present a problem of re-lighting and ‘touching up’ (a negative connotation regarding cigars and all other things frankly).
However, and this is important: The Cohiba Robusto is actually a very nice smoke. It tastes of that lemony honey which Cohiba have made their hallmark and the time taken to smoke it and the flavours and strength you get from it do make it a first class cigar. It is to some extent worth the money in the same way that a bottle of Mouton Rothschild is worth it - you do feel whilst smoking it and when you finish it that you have achieved something - You have just smoked a Cohiba (a small one yes) and it was good. Simply though it does not represent that ever yearned for concept of ‘value’. Have you really thought about it before smoking it or are you just smoking it for what it represents. In some ways I subscribe to the concept of a Veblen Good where the more it costs the better it is (women’s shoes for example or private education) but I have tried hard to shake this sentiment off and always attempt to make rational choices. I am torn here.
So do I have several cabinets on my humidor, yes and do I smoke then from time to time yes - especially when I need cheering up, because as the lady on the TV says: “I’m worth it”…
