"Overall this cigar was very mild, very smooth, very one dimensional. No pepper spice at anywhere during the smoke. There are some people out there that like a super mild, no spice Connecticut. I am not one of those people. Even though this cigar was extremely well made, it's just not my thing." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
HAVANA (AP) — Former President Fidel Castro, who led a rebel army to improbable victory in Cuba, embraced Soviet-style communism and defied the power of 10 U.S. presidents during his half century rule, has died at age 90.
Overall, this was a very good, smooth and velvety smoking experience. The first and second third's core flavors of sweetness, earthiness and floral notes was delicious. The last third was unfortunate as it was mainly just dry wood and black pepper. Hopefully, more age will change that. I would recommend this to someone that enjoys a lot of Cuban cigars. The cigar is fairly nuanced without having the spice to beat you over the head. I would easily seek out a fiver of these." -Jiunn (jliu)
Habanos, S.A will hold an exclusive presentation of the Cohiba Talismán 2017 Limited Edition at the Corinthia Hotel in London, an unprecedented vitola in the Habanos portfolio, conceived especially for the world’s best premium cigars lovers. All the Habanos of this Edición Limitada - Limited Edition have been made "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga" - Totally by Hand with Long Filler - and their leaves are specially selected from the Vuelta Abajo* region in Pinar del Río*, Cuba*, the best land in the world for growing tobacco. This product is produced and developed following meticulous manufacturing processes at the legendary El Laguito factory, in Havana.
For the most part, this tasted like a Cohiba, and not the best one I’ve had. I had expected a lot more from a special edition. The flavors were not all that complex and the transitions were moderately noticeable. Perhaps with some more time this would be something special, but for the moment, I doubt it will justify the hefty price tag it will take to get one.
