Cohiba Siglo II is certainly one of my favorite cigars! I tend to smoke one most evenings and have not been disappointed yet. Always well constructed and good looking.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
Cohiba Siglo II is a very beautiful mareva; vein-free, firm yet spongy and, unlit, a deep cedar nose.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★★
Enter the Siglo II – based on previous forays into the Cohiba line, my own expectations were that I would be handling an exceptionally constructed and crafted cigar that would smoke well and be multi-dimensional in flavour; and I was not disappointed.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★★
Smelling this cigar was wonderful and after having lit it up the magic continued down to the nub, with perfect combustion, draw and of course taste. It was tasty, creamy, smooth, with grassy flavour combined with hints of fresh beans. It gave me almost 2 hours of pleasure, which continued with the wonderful aftertaste it left in my mouth.

Value : Rating: ★★★½☆
Value is very difficult to define; what one considers expensive can often be in direct relation to the expectation of the outcome. Yes, Cohibas ARE expensive, but so are Rolex’s and Merc’s. For me, this was one of the best smokes I have had in a very long time – worth it!

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★★½
This Mareva, along with the Bolivar Tubos No. 2, is the best that Cuba offers. Money and time well spent.

    I looked for this review because it is my favorite cigar. I was in Cuba last week and purchased a box of 25. While they have always been pricey, I think cigar prices are up even in Cuba, I paid 300 Canadian for this box. Worth it. An evening cigar no doubt and full of flavor. Burns very nicely and does last for about 2 hours.

  3. Nice construction, good looks, but absolutely nothing to right home about in terms of flavour. Not worth the asking price.

  4. you paid 300 CAD??? did you buy them from Jose on the beach? I went to a reputable cigar shop in downtown Varadero and paid CUC173.75 which works out to just over 200 CAD.

  5. Thanks for this review: I [might] have one of these in the humi that I have been saving… Uh… I [maybe] “got it from a guy…”

  6. Smoked this with favourite escort while on business in dublin. We both LOVE this smoke! 2 hours of bliss!

    2 hours for a petit corona? Try 30-45mins.

    I have smoked nearly 2 boxes of these now and only a few duds. Start out like spicy grassy hay then turn into black coffee and dark chocolate. Not for the sweet tooth but great for a bitter coffee lover. Great cigar and decent price if you like the flavour profile
