    Behike 54. Actually that's probably a bit extra to be honest.

    Behike 52.

    I'm yet to have had any luck with Cohiba, have now got a couple Siglo IIs with a decade on them but the few I've tried before have all had construction issues or been plugged before I knew what a perfecdraw was.

    Quality? Its CUBA! Its all ways a roll of the dice with regards the draw and build quality. Value? Well its Cohiba so your at a point where logic is out the window and your happy to spend the cash.

    TASTE! Thats where its at, and that is subjective. My pallet is not the same as yours, but I bet we are not worlds apart.

    I have rarely ever had a problem with Cohiba's, most problems seem to be due to lack of ageing &/ or too high humidity; try dry boxing for a couple of days before smoking.

    I have a lot of respect for cohiba (apart from their prices ��), some of the best smokes I ever had were siglos II, III and VI. This week I smoked a media siglo I bought a month ago and was very keen to try as it was my first time with it. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement, it was bland beyond belief, almost as if I was a smoking warm air (this has happened to my once again with a Hoyo petit robusto) in addition the wrapper split when I was smoking it it and the whole thing unraveled when I had to remove the band. It was without exaggerating one of the worst cigars I ever had. I can only assume I must have been very unlucky with a bad stick but it has put me off a bit from this particular vitola considering I was also thinking of buying a full box.

    Robusto or Siglo VI for me, of the ones I’ve had.

    Siglo II - plugged
    Siglo VI - all time favourite
    BHK52 - OK
    BHK54 - Better
    Secretos - on the small side for me but pleasant otherwise.
    CoRo - second only to the VI
    Robustos Supremos - a bit strong, but I’d like another go.

    I'd say the Robusto is the best place to start. It has the Cohiba flavour and complexity and is a good size for new smokers. It's a classic Cuban in my book.
