Cohiba “Red Dot” Churchill

The “Red Dot” (as it has become known) 7” x 49 Churchill is wrapped in a pristine Cameroon leaf. The construction is expertly done and seems consistent from head to foot. Upon lighting, the perfect draw slowly peels away layer after layer of flavor. Charcoal and leather start it off, slowly giving way to nutmeg, mushroom, orange spice and toast. Hints of chestnuts and vanilla cream also tease along the way. Some sourness emerges towards the end putting an end to the flavor extravaganza. The Cohiba is not necessarily a super complex cigar, but it is packed with an amazing variety of flavors that somehow complement each other. A great cigar that would earn its own humidor filled to the rim, if not for the inflated price tag.
