The Siglo II is a Mareva vitola, moderately sized at 129mm and 42 gauge. Filled with Cohibas luxurious signature tobacco blend, all of their vitolas are Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Larga – long filler, handmade, in the famous El Laguito factory.
The renowned Cohiba Siglo series were released in 1992 to commemorate the 500 year anniversary of Columbus’ arrival to the new world, becoming available internationally in 1994. Siglo Series are known officially as the Linea 1492 range.
The Siglo II begins slowly with a mild chocolate flavour that combines with notes of honey and delicate spice. The body and strength top out at a medium level, offering a consistent but not overly complex array of flavours and milder than its Siglo siblings. If you are unfamiliar to the world of Cohibas, this one is a great place to begin.
We paired this with a sweet cognac that offered an excellent match to the subtle flavours, expect to enjoy this fine cigar for around one hour.
