Medio Siglo represents a new vitola for Habanos and its sizes also pay homage to two other classic vitolas treasured in Línea 1492. Cohiba Medio Siglo features Cohiba Siglo VI’s ring gauge 52 (20.64 mm) and Cohiba Siglo I’s length (102 mm), so it’s a habano with a clipped and modern format, absolutely new in the brand, with a drawing time of approximately 30 minutes and the mild strength Línea 1492 has been famous for.
Cohiba Medio Siglo
Overview: Cohiba Medio Siglo
Cohiba released the Medio Siglo in 2016 to celebrate their 50th anniversary, which directly translates to the ‘half century’. This is the most recent addition to the brand since the Siglo IV in 2002.
This spectacular new addition has a 52 gauge with 100mm length combining the gauge of Siglo I with the size of the Siglo VI to create a luxurious new vitola. This is the first time the Medio Siglo vitola has been used by Habanos and has now become a common and factory name. 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 that greeted us were cedar mixed with earthy spice, these scents turned into flavours and the strength picked up to a medium full level. We also noted some black pepper, soft fruit and a dash of nuttyness layered into the thick creamy smoke that Cohiba is notorious for.
This sensual cigar is a pleasure to smoke and would suit any time of day given its manageable size and smooth medium body, providing just under 60 minutes of smoking time.
