"With the single exception of the first few puffs being ever so slightly harsh, I haven't a negative remark to make about this cigar as it truly blew me away in just about every regard. Not only were the flavors incredibly robust, the mix was well-balanced and was suited almost perfectly for my palate. A perfect draw, flawless burn, and impeccable construction checked off the remaining boxes for me which rounded out an immensely enjoyable smoking experience from start to finish. I imagine this cigar would pair well with just about anything which is also a high mark in and of itself. Assuming the price point isn't outrageous, this stick has already landed in my regular rotation. If it is then I will gladly splurge for a special occasion as I am quite certain that a stick this would never disappoint. " -Noah S. (Noah

"Overall this turned out to be an exceptional cigar. The flavors did not transition much with the exception of the coffee that came and went and came back. The creaminess of the smoke and the temperature made for an extremely enjoyable cigar. The strength and body never climbed any higher than mild to medium, but once again, with the smoke texture of the cigar, it made for an overall very enjoyable experience." -Angel M. (Angel)
"Overall, this was an easy smoking & enjoyable cigar with clear transitions of body and complex flavors. While it might not have enough body for some folks, this cigar smoked clean with a mild to medium bodied profile with a lower strength component that pleasantly surprised me. Coupled with a slightly looser draw and phenomenal construction and burn, this makes it an easy recommendation for an everyday type of smoke." -John A. (Bostoneo
"A very solid medium body cigar from the first puff till I finished the review. The first and second thirds were very enjoyable, but towards the end it started to go flat and bring some bitterness. With the dryer smoke at the end I feel that it amplified the bitterness for me. " -Quinn (quinnpins269)
"Great looking and performing lancero. If you like an earthy profile this would be a great choice. I did find that it had a lack of transitions and was a bit one-dimensional. Still, the profile was solid and engaging the entire time." -Alan (Eulogy)
"A cigar clearly made with care and featuring a nice, if simplistic, flavor package and top-notch construction that let me focus on the smoking experience instead of fidgeting with my lighter or worrying about how frequently I should be puffing. I would pick more of these up for the right price." -Bill C. (Bill
Cohiba is adding their first regular production cigar for the first time since 2020 in the form of the Cohiba Riviera. The cigar is a six-region blend that features the Central American tobacco and is named after the lush San Andrés Tuxtla Valley that bore the cigar’s wrapper.
"This cigar was one of the best cigars I've tried in recent memory. I loved the vitola and the flavors I got, from espresso to dark chocolate to leather and some black pepper thrown in for good measure. Each one hit my palate in the sweet spot. Very anxious to see what this is so I can buy some for myself. Thanks for the opportunity!" -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
