Siglo VI (Tubo)
Top 25 of 2016 | Rank: 19

Tasting Note: There are a lot of "firsts" surrounding the Cohiba Siglo VI. It was the first addition to the Linea 1492 (or Siglo Series) since the brand was released. It was the first Cohiba in a tube. It was the first tube with the two-part, pull-cap design to come out of Cuba. It was the first Cohiba to exceed a ring gauge of 50. And it was also the first Cohiba to be on Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 list, making its inaugural appearance for the best cigars of 2004. Despite the long list of firsts, the Siglo VI is also a fantastic cigar. Many are made at El Laguito, which is Cohiba's mother factory, and even though the ring gauge is fairly heavy, Siglo VI cigars only have half a leaf of ligero tobacco in the blend, so the smoke has body, but isn't too powerful. Balance in blending is a difficult act, but necessary, especially with Cohiba—probably the most famous cigar name in the world.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Feb 01, 2016
Score: 92
A tan toro with a gleaming wrapper and substantial draw. This is a nutty smoke that imparts notes of almonds, graham cracker and rock candy. A touch of spicy cinnamon appears on the finish.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Aug 01, 2014
Score: 93
Toasty and nutty with a distinct cashew character and spicy cedary elements on the finish. A balanced cigar with plenty of character.
