Cigar Name: Cohiba Edicion Limitada 2006
Cigar Size: Piramide, 6.1 x 52.
Wrapper Type: Cuban.
Originally released in 2001 as a limited release. This 2006 was the 5th year Habanos S.A. began offering limited edition cigars. I was lucky enough to be given this cigar from a fellow cigar enthusiast and personal friend.
The color of the wrapper which is aged 2 years was dark and slightly oily. The wrappers veins were visible and had a slightly rough feel. The tobacco was rolled tightly and had a very clean cut. Only issue was slight unraveling near the cap and that could have been to the way it was stored.
The flavor was wonderful through the entire cigar. Another review said the flavor was that of toasted bread and I have to agree. It was not overwhelming and did not leave an aftertaste that was to strong. My go to cigar drink is a Arnold Palmer and it paired very nicely with the toasted bread taste. There were some other flavors coming through at different points but to be honest I am not the best at distinguishing them.
The draw was good. Had no major issues. About 2/3 of the way through I had to relight and it was not as smooth as I like. The draw was better at the beginning than at the end.
Burn was excellent stayed even the entire smoke. Only had to relight once and that was due to me talking and not puffing to keep it going.
Ash was white and was able to make a few long ash runs of about an inch to inch and a half.
The smoke was nice and thick.
I really enjoyed it and would smoke another, I never turn down a chance for a Cuban. I have never had a bad Cuban but then again I have only had two different Cohibas. Over all smoke was very satisfying and would recommend this to anyone who has the chance to smoke one. My Impression is based on all the other categories combined and that’s how I will get my final rating.
Overall Rating: 86
