I was really lucky when I had a chance to try this new Maduro 5. What can I say, the Cohiba Magicos truly deserves its name :)

This has to be one of the most refined and well-balanced cigars on the market. Very smooth and creamy coffee, cedar and light earth flavours, with none standing out. Reminds me of Siglo II, but way more subtle.

This cigar had the best, clean Cuban tobacco taste I ever experienced in a cigar. Extremely beautiful and perfect Julieta with a literally unlimited ageing potential, this cigar deserves to rest for at least 8-10 years in a humidor or even longer because really old H. Upmann cigars like Monarcas, Sir Winston and Magnum 46 are definitely among the best cigars in the world.

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.

No doubt this smoke is one of the best "goods" Cuban manufacturers have ever done. Its draw and combustion can be defined as perfect for its uniformity, and its taste half way between medium and strong is balanced in great harmony with subtle sweet, woody and earthy notes.

One of my favorite Churchills. Strong yet smooth, with a multitude of flavours, great to smoke on a hot summer evening. Bolivar Coronas Gigantes pairs nicely with a pint of cold water.

Tatuaje has become my favorite marca hands down and this cigar only reinforced that opinion. Tatuaje Reserva SW is a big stick with an oily, leathery, brown wrapper. There were small veins throughout and it was a little bumpy giving it a slightly rustic look. It had an expertly applied triple cap that clipped perfectly. It was well filled with no sign of any rib veins in the filler at the head or foot. The pre-light draw was firm with just the right amount of resistance. Very peppery at the start, it mellowed quickly to a nice woody core and vanilla notes with a nice earthy finish. I’d describe it as medium to full bodied, not as robust as the Regio or Noella. Half way through the vanilla disappeared and it got buttery/creamy with cocoa notes. The last third was the smoothest dominated by wood and leather. A fantastic and complex smoke from start to finish. If it wasn’t for the price I could smoke this every day.
