Cohiba Medio Siglo
Ring Gauge: 52
In 2016, Cohiba turned fifty. To commemorate the occasion, they released some stunningly flavourful, strikingly packaged, very high-end cigars that will never ever be seen on Canadian shelves. But for the general public, they also released the aptly named Medio (half-century) Siglo. As part of Cohiba’s Siglo series, the Medio offers a milder blend in a punchy 4″x52 petit robusto size. It also delivers an exquisite nuttiness, mixed with some cinammon, pepper and cedarwood.
Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles
Strength: Medium – Full
Ring Gauge: 50
Many cigar brands toil in obscurity for years before establishing a strong reputation and customer base. Not so with the Tatuaje brand, which was created in 2003 and instantly lavished with praise by Cigar Aficionado magazine. Their portfolio of medium to full-bodied cigars includes the Havana VI line, of which the ‘Nobles’ is a proper Robusto size (5” x 50). Tatuaje aims to mimic Cuba in their cigar blends – especially with regards to complexity in the tobacco – and the Havana VI Nobles hits the mark with flavours ranging from leather to spice to black cherry tartness.
