Cohiba questions.

I have only smoked 1 other Cohiba before today, so I did a little reading.

Do I understand correctly that most of the Cohibas I see talked about (and pictured) on this forum are "real" Cuban's? Other then the Red Dots of course.

    If the ones you are referring to have yellow and black with white squares on the bands, then yes those are cc cohibas.

    A lot of them with the yellow checkered bands are real fake cubans.

    Yep, VERY different animals. I don't care for the NC Cohibas (the black is the best of the lot for me), but the CC's aren't bad except for their price. There are other CC's I like better at much more reasonable prices. Plus those and the Monte 2's seem to be the most often faked.

    I did indeed. I would smoke it again, in fact the 2nd one is going into "The Box" which is where I put cigars I like and want to age some. It was a much bigger ring gauge then the ones I normally smoke, and I will probably smoke it outside to lessen the potential fire hazard.

    You have a PM about the recipe.

    Glad it was such a good experience for you JD, you'll have to try the CC sometime ;) Of the non-Cuban stuff I personally like the XV best though I haven't had one for years need to get some when I finally have money again lol. Oh and the original one if theirs the "Red Dot" is pretty good with a couple years on it. Hope that helps.

  • I have very mixed feelings on Cohiba. when i first started cigar smoking and i would get them from the states they we not good. Over here in Asia though you see a lot of Cohiba's most places that sell cigars will be stocked full of Cuban Cohiba's, and they are such a good smoke. I'll either get a Cohiba or a Romeo Y Julieta Churchill (yeah, i'm picky with that type of cigar). and i am almost never disappointed. I have still yet to try another non-cuban cohiba though in a while.

    I smoke a stick back in the day about 15 years ago, it was the best cigar I have had, but I cant remember what it was I know it had a black and yellow band, it had eluted me every since like my "Eleanor" I pretty sure it was a Cohiba
