This cigar is not out in the market yet, but experts (both real and imagined) in the world of cigar are already saying that the Cohiba Behike is the best cigar EVER. This is no mean feat, especially since the cigar is coming from Cuba, which is already generally considered to be the best source of cigars.
In February of this year, the Cohiba Behike was launched in Havana, and the tag line â€œsetting a new standard among smokers worldwideâ€ was used. Naturally, the interest of cigar aficionados was caught, and the fact that supplies of the cigar will be limited has only helped fuel the flames. Law of supply and demand at work here!
Where there is smoke, there must be fire, right? While the cigar has not yet been released for sale, privileged people have already tried it. Mitchell Orchant is one example. He is a cigar merchant operating out of London, and he was one of the select individuals who was able to smoke a Cohiba Behike during its launch. He swears by the cigar, and is proud to declare that he as 1,000 people on his waiting list for the cigar.
What makes this particular cigar that great? Orchant says that â€œthis is perfection in a Cuban cigar… the Cubans have got every aspect of this cigar right – the brand, the size, the taste. And of course it’s unique because a rare leaf is being used in its blend, the first time such a leaf has been used in a cigar.â€
It will be for sale in June â€“ I suggest you go find your source as early as now.
