    i’m not agree at all with Jason, for me the cohiba genios is by far one of the best if is not the best cigar that i ever smoked.

    The flavor, the color are amazing, a lot of wood, cedar, spices…

    I recently (this past weekend) had a Maduro 5 and had the exact same opinion. It was a good cigar and parts of it were fantastic but it was particularly harsh in the first and last portions. A little more bitter/acidic than I prefer.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with you on this one, Jason. I think this is a gorgeous cigar. I do know that one or two sticks from a box are not very well made but if not for that,these are just beautiful! As for the flavor: Lots of chocolaty, milk coffee, biscuit and peppery notes..

    On the other hand I do agree with you about the price issue.

    I love the Cohiba Robusto & the Behike, but was disappointed in this one. I felt the Maduro took over that delectable Cuban leaf flavors & I didn’t even think it was a Cuban. Plus, $38 I thought was a rip off.

    Hi Jason,

    I was hoping you could speak to how you came upon this cigar.

    Your review describes perfectly my experience with “Cohiba Genios,” a good cigar, adequate construction, minimal maduro flavours, decent cuban flavours, inconsistenet throughout with some periods of significant harshness.

    However let me explain the quotations. The Cohiba Genios” were purchased from the a Cuban hotels event coordinator. These are under the table cigars that are easily purchased by tourists in Cuba, they come in open boxes for inspection then the Cuban stickers are applied after purchase to seal the box, stickers all bands, labels, and sticker appear to be legit. These are quality cigars – well made with good Cuban tobacco that offer great bang for the buck. But, they are not the same cigars that you buy in a legitimate store- I am convinced of this 1) because my experience with these under the tables cigars while good is inconsistent with reviews from others and 2) especially on this Maduro line, the wrappers are noticeably different lighter, less glossy, and more rustic in appearance.
