Cohiba Siglo VI
The newest addition to Cohiba’s Siglo series is enjoyed by collectors around the world and offers great aging potential. This is a long Robusta Extra with a full-bodied profile. The Siglo VI’s balanced blend of flavors include fruity and nutty undertones.
Cohiba Siglo VI Overview
In 1992, Cohiba debuted its Siglo series with five Siglos, numbered in accordance with their price. The Siglo VI, however, was introduced in 2002 to mark the tenth anniversary of the Siglo line.
At a ring size 52, it is the thickest Siglo cigar and among Cohiba’s thickest options overall. It is a 150 mm (5.9”) long Robusto Extra, which makes it longer than the average Cohiba and provides a good two hours of smoking.
The Siglo VI is hand rolled in the El Laguito factory, which is known for its precision and careful rolling. Cohiba use a mix of tobacco from across Cuba for the Silgo VI, very much creating a pleasing cigar that responds to most palates.
Smoking a Cohiba Siglo VI
The Siglo VI is the highest quality cigar in the Siglo range exception. It’s an experience to be cherished, even if you’re new to smoking fuller-bodied cigars. From the pre-light draw all the way down to the last third, the experience can last for over two hours yet there is no bitterness at any stage.
Construction and Feel
Thanks to its thick ring size, the Siglo VI feels robust and provides more than enough smoke to be flavorful. Its wrapper is smooth and consistent throughout, with minimal veins. The tobacco itself is generally well-packed without soft spots, uneven packing, or other problems.
Its burn is even and slow with no canoeing, which is a testament to the quality of the packing. The draw is slightly tight for its size, but not uncomfortably so. These factors make it an easy to enjoy with minimal effort, even if you’re chatting at a social event and not always focused on the cigar.
Cohiba Siglo 6 Flavors and Balance
Unlike the other Siglos, this one actually opens with white pepper notes. The first third is leathery, yet smooth, with cinnamon and nutty notes coming out midway through as the flavors become creamier. Fruity undertones begin to emerge here and continue until the last third.
The second third is very similar to the first, with the spicy pepper flavors becoming slightly more intense. The nutty and bready undertones gain power in this third and begin to fade out by the end.
The final third begins to lose the sweeter notes in favor of more cedar flavors. Overall, this is the most peppery of the Siglos, and its medium-to-full profile makes it among the strongest alongside the Siglo I. It is a powerful blend, but it is well-balanced and makes for an enjoyable smoke.
Cohiba Siglo 6 Potential Pairings
The rich and complex flavors of the Siglo VI allow it to pair with a variety of other coffees and alcohols, as long as care is taken to choose a pairing that is robust enough. If a mild drink is chosen, the cigar will probably overwhelm it.
The Siglo VI pairs well with rum, bourbon, darker whiskeys, and full-bodied beers. If you’re feeling adventurous, the medium-full flavor also works with dark stouts and porters. This cigar isn’t as sweet as some of the other Siglos, so you can pair it with a rich, chocolatey porter without getting overwhelmed by sweetness.
Look for medium or dark roast coffees that have nutty undertones, or whiskeys and rums with heavy spiced notes. You can also try red wines, especially ones with fruity flavors and a medium or full body.
The Siglo VI is the most expensive in the series, and is even more expensive than other Cohibas. It is a cigar to be savored and shared as a special gift for close friends or important guests.
However, it ages beautifully and can be kept for special occasions for years to come if stored properly. It is available in boxes of 10 or 25, so you can choose the size that works best for you.
Cohiba Siglo VI Experience
The Cohiba Siglo VI is an item for true collectors and connoisseurs who can make the most of the experience. It is an excellent cigar that’s worth investing in, and should be tried at least once if you enjoy medium-to-full flavors in a cigar that’s larger than the average Cuban.
Good Cigar, packaged well, shipped in a timely manner. Ordering around the holidays takes a little longer. These were bought in November so no issues. As advertised!
Not as srong as one might think. It smokes smoothly right down to the end.

Thanks team you guys never have disappointed.
Received an order I placed for a few singles of the Siglo VI as usual the cigars were securely packaged and arrived in great condition. I don’t smoke these on a regular basis due to the cost but like to save them for an occasional special treat every few months and a special treat they are.
Thanks to the Dr. Joe Show I am familiar with Luxury Cubans. I found myself absolutely agreeing with Dr. Joe about how mindblowing the Siglo VI’s I ordered (Cabinet of 10) were that I’ve been counting the days until they are back in stock. Thanks Dr. Joe and thanks Luxury Cubans
First time order.
Box of 25 Siglo VI arrived in a timely manner. Was impressed with the box and contents. Stogies were beautifully wrapped with a yellow ribbon.
Smooth smoking. Very surprised.
Will order again soon.
Tried one when it arrived they need some age.
The cigars are young need some aging. I will try again in 6 months from now.
And hopefully they will get more intense flavors.
Yes, I was quite happy with the cigars. They took a while to arrive, but that’s understandable. I would suggest a better package. I ordered 5 as gifts, and had to go find nice cigar holders to keep them fresh and to present them. It would at least be a nice option
I ordered 10 Cohiba Siglo VI cigars and received them in perfect condition at the time specified. I will be purchasing more in the future.
Enjoying the smokes greatly. Another cigar purchase is in the air soon
Great shipping, 8 days with the routing. Everything is good
Bought a few sticks of these several weeks ago just to make sure before buying a whole box. Shipping took approximately 10 days. The cigars were real deal as per mentioned although they were a bit dry to my taste. Would definitely come back for more. Highly recommended
Received my Siglo V1s yesterday as usual well wrapped and no problem just wish delivery could be faster 16 days is way to long.
I ordered them for my husband’s birthday. He absolutely loved them! He doesn’t know, but he will receive more for the holidays as well.
Without a doubt the finest cuban cigar in the premium robusto category. It draws spectactularly with bouquets of honey leather and coffee flavor. Best enjoyed with single malt scotch or a pale ale Bass .
As always great service and delivery from Luxury Cubans! This box of Silo VI’s are beautiful cigars that taste fantastic!! Thanks Luxury Cubans!
As expected, purchased singles, perfect condition and packaged great.
Haven’t smoke this box yet. Still being conditioning in my wineador. The box came sealed as requested, and the cigars are in excellent conditio.
Didn’t take long for me to receive my package. I am pleased with the cigars I purchased.
Thanks Luxury Cubans, order arrived on time in perfect condition as always, definitely the best cigar I’ve ever had. Plan on ordering a box from Luxury Cubans even though other vendors are cheaper that’s the only negative!!
This was my first time ordering Cuban cigars via Luxury Cubans and I must say, as a person that travels to Cuba every year, your cigars are on point! A+ I will be order more cigars from you guys.
While sometimes a challenge with the draw, they are always a great smoke.
Received my Cohiba Siglo VI…saving for a very special occasion. Very pleased…
Not only were the cigars the best ever, the service was great and they were packaged extremely well. Thank You..
Well, there is a reason we pay a premium for Authentic Cuban Cigars. I just bought my first box and let it rest in my humidor for 15 days. I just lit one a few hours ago…………..Perfect in every way. Sight, smell, light, draw, burn, right to the end. About 75 minutes. Ash was perfect, smoke was……..different, color, smell, taste, volume. Love it. Glad I jumped in
I can only speak to customer service, packaging, shipping, appearance, and smell at this time as I haven’t had the pleasure yet of lighting one up. They are currently acclimating to their new home in my humidor at 63/64 temp and around 65 rh.
So, customer service is excellent. Had some concerns (large online purchase) Tom was great, we exchanged several emails. From time of order to my door in CA. USA was 16 days. Actual transit time was 10 days after they shipped.
They were in a cohiba box (unopened) in a sealed bag, in a outer well sealed box. No issues there. Box that cigars are in is in excellent condition, cigars are undamaged, smell wondeful, and do not seem to be dried out or any worse for wear as they have traveled quite some distance in their lifetime. All in all an excellent site to do business with. Emails are answered within 24 hours or less.(Cherrie is also great)
Tracking is also excellent, use aftership to track your package. I have already placed another order for BHK 52’S Box of 10. Mmmmmmmm
I just received my 25 stick box of Cohiba Siglo VI’s in the mail today. I spend the box and the aroma was incredible. I then checked with my jeweler’s Loop the little secret locations of the serial numbers and authenticated my Cohiba’s on the Habanos website. They are authentic. However just smelling and looking at the bundle of cigars, one can tell they are the real deal. I will let the cigars settle for about 4 days in my humidor…can’t wait to smoke one, Thanks Luxury Cubans!
I love the look and the feel of this stick. It has just the right size to me. It is a fairly good smoke but in my oppinion it’s not as good as Cohiba Robusto. Siglo VI is more complex but the taste and smoke is not as smooth and pleasant.
If I could combine the size of Siglo VI and the taste of Cohibe Robusto it would be the perfect cigar.
