Up for review is the Cohiba Red Dot toro sent to me from Thompson cigar, thanks guys. I haven’t smoked too many Cohiba cigars from the Dominican republic, most of the Cohibas I smoke are from the island just south of Miami. This cigar is really popular with the occasional or rich smoker demographic because the name Cohiba is so well known. I really had no idea what to expect from this cigar so I just dove right in.
The prelight smells were of pepper and spice. The cigar had a nice oily sheen and very minimal veins present. I clipped the cap with my cutter and lit the foot. I was getting a lot of spice on the first few puffs and I could tell it was going to be a strong cigar. Ample amounts of pepper and spice were on the tongue and yet it was smooth at the same time. I was really enjoying this cigar as it had a couple of changes and the depth was excellent. The burn was sharp all the way through with maybe one or two touch ups along the way.
Again, as with a lot of the cigars I have been reviewing lately the price point is outrageous. At $13.50 a cigar I could find two to three boutique cigars that cost as much as one of these and smoke the same if not better. But, if you have the money burning a hole in your pocket by all means grab one of these.
