Cohiba 1966 Limited Edition 2011

During the 2011 Habanos Festival we had the pleasure to test smoke some of these. They were handed out officially for the first time during the H. Upmann Gala night Feb 23rd, 2011

The maduro wrapper and the very powerfull blend will mature to perfection in the next years. The Cañonazo sized cigar (like Siglo VI but with a so called pig tail) is packed with flavours of roasted coffee and toasted bread. The tasting samples we had in the factories were very young and showed a bit too much power for now. Basically they remind me to the young Cohiba Double Coronas - a cigar that is extremly well to smoke now. So, when these come out grab some boxes and let them rest a while.
