I, for one, am very excited about the release of 3 new cigars from Cohiba this March/April. We’ll be seeing a bit of a different blend of leaves as well with the use of the two very top leaves of the tobacco plant that are called ” medio tiempo”. Some reviews have said that these are a beautiful tasting cigar, very rich in flavors while others say they will probably have a not so beautiful price tag.
There will be no way they’ll be as expensive as the original Behike that was introduced in 2006 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cohiba. Only 100 humidors were released at a price of about $450 per cigar. I believe that this year’s release will be more affordable to the general public but still no promises as to how many will be available.
The Behike BHK 52 will be a petit Robusto with a length of 122 and a ring gauge of 52. The Behike BHK 54 will be a Robusto Extra at a length of 144 at a 54 ring gauge while the Behike BHK 56, a double Robusto, will have a length of 166 and, of course, a ring gauge of 56.
Cohiba, my favorite brand out of Havana and easily the best quality tobacco, not only has me in awe of their efforts but never ceases to amaze me as to how much suspense they can provide to their devotees.
