Cohiba has given
us some of the best Edicion Limitada cigars, the best of which, in my opinion,
are the astonishing Sublimes. This year, the Cohiba 1966 Edicion Limitada
coincides with the brand`s 45th anniversary and the result is a very unique
cigar, marketed in even more limited quantities than is usual for the
line. It is a very dignified cigar
166mm long with a ring gauge of 52 (21mm), sold only in boxes of 10 and made
from very strictly selected tobaccos from the San Juan y Martinez and San Luis
plantations in Vuelta Abajo, that have matured for at least two years.
It is a sumptuous cigar that I had the
opportunity to smoke a few days ago, before it even made it into the Greek
market. Rich and spicy, with all the
characteristic roasted aromas of the Edicion Limitada line, but also featuring
the complexity that one would expect from a great cigar, fills the mouth with
flavours of coffee, spices and leather.
It is a heavy, exquisite cigar, a worthy carrier of the tradition that
Cohiba started with the Maduro 5 line
and then with the amazing Behike.
I will not rate it yet, as I want to smoke 1-2 more, but it will be close to 9/10! It is going to be expensive, around €40 each, but it`s worth every penny....just make sure you get to it before it runs out.
