This guest review was submitted by a good friend of this blog, Richard Bui. Happy reading!

Cohiba is one of the cigar brands that need no introductions. The flagship brand of Habanos S.A. and the personal brand to Dictator Fidel Castro, Cohiba is the cream of the crop for Cuban cigars and you certainly pay top dollar for that.

As the Robusto is my favorite cigar vitola, it should come as no surprise that the Cohiba Robusto would be a cigar I would be interested in. I have looked forward to having one for a very long time and opportunity came knocking. Here are my thoughts.

I will not bore you with the history of the Cohiba marca as it is already so well known. In addition, a lot has already been written about this particular vitola from Cohiba which is among one of its most popular. It is viewed by many as one of the best Robustos in the world, and has gone a long way towards popularizing this format. I recently purchased a box, and upon their arrival I noticed they were already over a year old. After about a month’s time, to allow them to settle in my humidor, I opened the SLB to sample this Cuban gem. Here are my thoughts…

My latest foray into the Siglo line is the Siglo I. An expensive little guy, but these have a great reputation. So, I was looking forward to the experience.

This is a gorgeous Laguito No. 2 that I was very excited to try. My luck hasn't been so great with the Cohiba Siglo line, in that they have been too grassy for my taste. So I was hoping that this one would suit me better. The exact box code of this cigar is unknown, but is almost certainly from 2007/2008 production.

Cohiba is one of the most famous cigar brands in the world. Thanks to the United States trade embargo with Cuba and General Cigar’s appropriation of the trademark in the US market, it is also a brand name surrounded by a lot of confusion. There are a surprising number of people out there including some who consider themselves “cigar smokers” who fail to understand that the famous Cohiba, the Cuban version, in no way, shape or form is related to the Cohiba that is for sale in the US.

I'm bringing you something special today. Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios, a custom robusto-sized cigar introduced in 2007, is indeed an elite treat. At over $20 each, it is not an everyday smoke (well, at least for me) and I only reward myself with one on very important occasions.

The Cohiba Siglo VI X Aniversario that I will be smoking today comes from the Cohiba Siglo limited edition humidor that was introduced back in 2002. Only 500 were made and each humidor came with 90 cigars. That’s six different vitolas, each with 15 cigars.

The cigar looks fantastic. A smooth wrapper with no veins popping at you, a beautiful light brown color, and the classic taxi colored Cohiba band with a little twist. In my opinion, the Sig VI is one of the perfect size cigars measuring at 52 x 5.9, it just feels good between your fingers.

I'm back with another Cuban cigar review - this time it's a Très Petit Corona by Cohiba - Siglo #1. I found myself turning to this smoke during those cold months, when it's hard to fully enjoy an Esplendido or a Partagas P2. Surprisingly, it packs a lot of flavors in such a small vitola.
