The Cohiba Siglo III is an expertly constructed cigar revealing mild flavors and nuanced textures. It gives off a rich, creamy smoke and taste, a 6-inch cigar that’s ideal for outdoor social events.
Cohiba Siglo III Overview
This 6-inch cigar is part of the Siglo series, which are all milder than other Cohiba cigars. With a 42 ring gauge and a perfectly-constructed 3-seam cap, it has a light- to medium-bodied flavor, and provides a famously creamy taste.
Most aficionados swear by aging this cigar for an even more intense experience and to develop the flavors in each third further.
Smoking a Cohiba Siglo III
The pre-smoke and pre-draw scent are delicious and enticing. Containing consistent undertones of natural dried fruit, this cigar emits a base layer of a creamy, woody taste. Tinges of both espresso and caramel come through as you smoke.
Initially it can feel like an oily smoke, although this is a desirable feature. The Cohiba Siglo III then pushes into an oakier overtone. There’s also the slightly salted, classic Cohiba cedar-wood flavor. The draw can be tight initially, but it soon loosens up.
The Siglo III’s wrapper is very tightly bound and beautifully constructed, shaded a deep brown by the Medio Claro leaf. The flat head is another distinctive feature.
This is a relatively expensive cigar, but very much worth the price if you’re a fan of the model Cohiba construction, with its seamed cap and tightly bound wrapping.
Cohiba Siglo IIIs have excellent aging potential and a great to save for outdoor social smoking.
