COHIBA SIGLO VI
COHIBA SIGLO VI is what you call true excellence! Until the summer of 2003, it seemed as if Cuba would completely ignore the fat cigar trend. Then Habanos S.A. introduced the Cohiba Siglo VI in the United Kingdom. Dubbed the cañonazo, or “cannon shot,” in Cuban cigar factories, the cigar was a new size for Cuba, just under 6 inches long and an impressive 50 ring gauge.
The cigar (which also comes in an extraordinary colorful aluminum tube for an even higher price) brims with strong and intense flavors, loaded with leather and coffee notes. It’s a full-bodied smoke not meant for an inexperienced palate. Cuba tried to replicate its success the following year when it introduced the Montecristo Edmundo, a bit shorter and slightly fatter than the Siglo VI.
Still, it failed to live up to the high standards set by Cohiba. The Siglo is the best of modern-day Cuban cigars. You can buy this COHIBA SIGLO VI at Stogies & More.
