Popular Post 99call Posted May 9, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted May 9, 2019 Cohiba Medio Siglo 2018 Aroma at cold: rich lemony tobacco, but with more body and edge than the rest of Cohibas offerings Cold Draw, forgot to do…….but it’s the worst wind tunnel I’ve ever encountered, Depressing 1st Half This Is really sad, I wanted this review to be an "Ode to the only Cohiba I have affection for", but there are many leaves missing from this cigar, and even if those that remain as tasty, I think it’s still going to be a stinker. The taste of the tobacco is undoubtedly classy, but at this stage there is no cream or the edge taste of trini Vigia, which I find to be the reason why I like these cigars. Here we go there’s a little of that toasted body coming through like a really good RS11. Even though this is painfully underfilled, it’s all class, it’s just the extra weight of body and richness which makes me respect this blend. I confess to being utterly bored by the majority of Cohiba I’ve tried, but where as it’s brothers and sisters, are all velvet glove, this has some power a bit of grunt. flavours of sour hay, and cut grass, but with the rich doughiness of Trinidad, and toasted rounded flavour of an RS11.. lovely……if only they’d only fill the cigar properly!! 2nd Half Eyes closed I would pick this as a very very good Coloniales, and that sums it up, it’s got the juxtaposition that all the great things have, the floral sweetness, but the rich light leather and barnyard. a little salty and little sour. Numerous touch ups needed, as the binder and filler are collapsing in on themselves, and there is daylight between it and the wrapper. I’d like to say…”maybe this is what I’ve been missing with Cohiba…..maybe I get it now?” but I think that’s doing the brand a credit they just don’t deserve….but this cigar does. Hats off to you Medio Siglo, if I can find a box that’s not underfilled I may just be tempted to pay the stupid price. Conclusion I’m glad I kept on searching, and didn’t give up on Cohiba, Cuba’s premium brand will always be Trinidad for me, as I love them dearly, but this is a very very good cigar Score I can only realistically give it a 88, as it was daylight robbery in terms of tobacco theft, but if made correctly, this could of been a good 92-93. 14 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
