By James R. D. on 30 Apr. 2012 (Cohiba Behike 56) :
I was fortunate enough to find a few buddies to share a box of Behike 56 with me, normally I would never spend close to $50+ for a stick of cigar, but given the hype, i figured this is a must try in my lifetime. Behike 56 came in a very nicely done black lacquered box, never seen a box that beautiful. immediately upon opening the box, cuban aroma shot through the opening, it smelled amazing. construction was flawless, packed foot, no soft spots anywhere, perfectly done pig tail cap. holding this cigar in your hand is simply awesome with its 56 ring, you need to set aside a good 2 hours to slowly enjoy this beast. flavor was amazaing, sweet background with a tiny bit of spice, as you go through it it become creamier, strength builds up towards the 2nd half, with cocoa, chocolate touches to it, very very complex, balanced flavor without being harsh. it was an wonderful smoking experience, although price per stick is out of the world, but i recommend giving it a try at least once to get a personal taste of the Behike.
Cohiba Behike, the most exclusive linea of the most prestigious Habanos brand, arrives in April to the markets with three new formats: BHK 52, BHK 54 and BHK 56. Its extremely limited production incorporates for the first time in the blend of its three vitolas the tobacco leaf called "Medio tiempo" that grants it exceptional character and flavor.
