Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios


Overview: Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios

Cohiba Maduro 5 Genios is a Robusto Extra, measuring at 140mm with a 50 gauge, Genios are the largest of the Maduro range. Cohiba introduced the Linea Maduro 5 collection in 2007, unique to all 3 cigars in this range, the tobacco wrapper is the Dark Maduro leaf. 

This leaf grows at the very top of shade grown plants, requiring an additional ageing and fermentation process over the course of 5 years, resulting in a sweeter flavour and inspiring the name of this collection. Filled with the signature tobacco blend exclusive to Cohiba, all of their vitolas are Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Larga – long filler, hand made, in the famous El Laguito factory.

The aromas are lively with cinnamon and honey at the top, the rich flavours developed as we smoked initially displaying notes of coffee and roasted tobacco, later developing into chocolate and touches of nutty nougat. 

While the wrappers are aged for 5 years the internal fill is aged for 2-3 years, so while they are a great smoke right out of the box they would rest well in your humidor for reintroduction at a later date.

    just the best of the best
    excellent cigar with something different and exotic the other cigars.
    the maduro genios have a sweet but spicy and woody taste which is something unbelievable
    just the king of the cigar

    Alright call me spoiled because I am a Canadian and have direct access to travelling to Cuba but I have smoked just about every Cohiba size their is and I found the Maduro Genios to be slightly disappointing. Yes the taste is nice and creamy, the five year old maduro wrapper is a bit on the oily side and very tasty but as is the case with most Cohibas some of the sticks are wrapped too tightly and it has a negative impact on the draw. I purchased two boxes of these babies in the spring and after reading in Cigar Afficiando where this is a common problem for Cohiba due to their massive output relative to some of the lesser known Cuban brands, these babies are now in the humidor and I will sample one about every 6 months until they have loosened up a bit. And before anyone even tries to mention fakes (as Cohibas are the most counterfieted cigars on the planet) these boxes were purchased at the factory where I was touring with a number of cigar store owners in my home city. In 2 years time I am sure that these will cigars will be worthy of a 10 but what one requires now is patience to allow these cigars to reach maturity.

    These carry wonderful notes of dark chocolate, barnyard aroma, and rich creaminess. The exhibit considerable age, but could use another 5 years to fully develop remaining tannins. Incredible long term potential.

    I have tried a lot of cigars through the years and this cigar has to be one of the best ! The flavor is mild and smooth. It also has a slow burn . Very enjoyable and nothing wrong with the draw. I recommend this to all my friends. A must try!
