The Results Are In !

The results are in for 2010 and the Cohiba Behike 52 is ” Cigar Aficionado’s ” cigar of the year in their annual quest to find and name their top 25 cigars.  Anyone who has had the good fortune of lighting up one of these stout 4.7 inch long ( and yes ) 52 ring gauge masterpieces from Cohiba will agree that there is something special going on in the blend of tobaccos.

2 top leaves which only sometimes appear on a tobacco plant, called Medio Tiempo, were introduced in this blend of incredible tobacco and the results made the world sit up and take notice.  The flavor was ultra creamy, earthy and so smooth that I knew I had something very special in my hand when I tried my first last summer.  Rather than letting it sit in my humidor for a few years, I had to smoke it as soon as I bought it.

Oh yes, thats another thing…. Finding these tend to be a bit of a trick since there is a limited number of these cigars that get produced out of Havana at the ” El Laguito” factory.  Most Cuban cigar smokers want to taste them and see what the fuss is all about and although the price is considerably higher than all other Cubans, no one was letting that get in their way of buying as many as they could afford in 2010.  Many cigar smokers haven’t tasted them yet and ” Cigar Aficionado’s ” nod will only make the demand for these cigars even greater. The other 2 brothers in this release were the 54 ring gauge and the 56 which disappeared off the shelves almost instantly.

Contact Trevor at “The Vancouver Cigar Company”, ask when more of this brand will be available, treat him well, and with some luck you may have some of these aging in your humidor by the spring.
