Quick Smoke: Cohiba Maduro 5 Mágicos (Cuban)

30 Nov 2018

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Cohiba Maduro

When I reviewed this Cuban years ago, which is the first Cohiba to have a maduro wrapper, I found a complex profile of coffee, spice, licorice, cream, and roasted nut. Unfortunately, I also found sub-standard construction—something that’s unforgivable in a cigar that costs over $20. I recently decided to try another, and I honestly wish I hadn’t. The only thing that has changed is the price. Now, you can expect to pay around $30 for a single, and you’ll still have issues with the physical properties. While I like the flavors, I cannot in good conscience recommend such an expensive smoke when the construction is, at best, highly unpredictable.

Verdict = Sell.
