I was very fortunate to crack one box of the awaited Habanos 2017 Limited edition: the Cohiba Talisman.
We have seen many of these cigars on the different social medias even though the launch event is on the 8th of November in London. Hunters and Frankau, the UK distributor of Habanos, got the opportunity to organise the official launch. That said we should all get worried about any Talisman around on the grey markets.
If I decided to write a review about this unofficial release, it is because I am 100% sure about the provenance of the box and we were few from the industry around the table to have the chance to taste it.

I have always been amazed by all the lifestyle behind the incredible Fuente family. The Opus line almost became an addiction for some and a myth for others.
Not my everyday cigar, as I normally do not spend over $15 in new world cigars, but I thought I would give it a try again.
