Overall Experience:

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.
