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.
