Quick Smoke: Cohiba Siglo VI (Cuban)

12 Mar 2016

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Siglo VI

The core Cohiba line, also known as Línea Clásica, launched in 1982 with three vitolas: Panetela, Corona Especial, and Lancero. Exquisito, Espléndido, and Robusto were introduced in 1989. The much-lauded Siglo line—which ranges in format from the small Siglo I (4 x 42) to the large Siglo VI (6 x 52)—didn’t come around until later. Aside from Behike, the Cohiba Siglo VI is one of the most sought-after Cubans. If you can get your hands on one, you’ll find a well-balanced profile of honey, white pepper, earth, and cream—but you’ll also find a cigar that turns papery and sour from time to time. In my view, this makes the Siglo VI really difficult to recommend, especially for the tremendous price the cigar often commands.

Verdict = Hold.

    I’ve had two and one left in the long range humidor. One was almost perfect and the other was papery and bland. It is hard to think, at the price these incur, that they would be so inconsistent.

    I picked up a box and its dated April 2010…and still the cigar turns sour and bitter in the final 1/3rd. The First 2/3rds are phenomenal though.
