First third – Cigar starts off with a soft nutty note with floral. This turns to a cream and oak like note. Slight pepper on the retro hale but it is light. Burn is slightly wavy. Ash is mid gray in color.
Second Third – Nutmeg, spice and some cinnamon take the stage here. Burn remained slightly wavy.
Final Third – Oak comes back in the fold mixed with baking spices. Some floral notes hit the finish. Burn finished perfect.
Bourbon – Rabbit Hole
The Cohiba Behike gets a ton of hype as being one of the top, if not the top, Cohiba Cuban cigars on the market. I thought the flavor complexity for a mild to medium type cigar experience was phenomenal. Really nice unique transitions that are pronounced and really easy to decipher. A total palate pleaser. Given the chance to get your hands on one of these, go for it. A good buddy of mine gave this to me and I tell you what hands down a great smoking experience.
