Quick Overview

The Cohiba Behike 52 is an exceptional, flavorful and already aged Cuban cigar, of 52 ring gauge, 4’7” (119mm) long and comes in a box of 10 cigars. Released in 2010, this cigar is Cohiba’s most exclusive brand. Coming in a brand new format, with a heavy ring gauge, the Behike 52 (named after its ring gauge) is 119 mm long. It is rolled with the finest tobacco in Cuba, Volado, Seco and Ligero and also Medio Tiempo (which are the top leaves of only certain sun grown tobacco plants). What differentiates the BHK 52 from the other cigars from Cohiba is that the leaves used for the filler are already aged, and as a result this cigar doesn’t require aging to reveal such an exceptional taste and character. The main aromas developed by this cigar are of creamy coffee and of rich earthy flavors, which are reminiscent of well-aged cigars. Unsurprisingly, the price of this jewel is high; however, the BHK 52 lives up to its reputation and is worth every penny. This is indeed a unique cigar, and a very rewarding experience that will delight the true Cuban aficionado.

Presentation

The Cohiba Behike BHK 52 comes in a lacquered box of 10 cigars with Habanos Packing Code SPB-S-n-n-n-10

Dimensions:

Length: 119 mm

Diameter: 20.64 mm

Ring Gauge: 52

Shape:  Laguito No. 4

Appearance:

This is a very beautiful cigar. The construction is impeccable. It has a beautiful wrapper, practically flawless, a bit darker than a Colorado wrapper. And there is a very nice little pig tail at the cap. The band has an awesome finish with two security holograms on it; it comes off without much effort and without damaging the cigar whatsoever. The cigar has a slight spongy feel while still being firm. And its texture is fabulous.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

Amazing aromas emanate from the wrapper and the foot.

Burn/ Draw

The draw is very open. Each draw lets out lots of velvety and thick smoke. The burn line is even and neat throughout the cigar.

Initial third:

Right off the bat, the cigar provides excellent flavor. The cigar is very creamy, has generous aromas. We can notice beautiful notes of cocoa. It is a typical Cohiba with wonderful earthy and woodsy flavors. Towards the end of the first third, subtle hints of sweet spices also appear. All these aromas make a pleasant combination that lingers on the palate.

Middle third:

While the cocoa, woodsy flavors of the first third remain, the second third brings some more complexity to the cigar. Each draw brings something different, we start to detect some more citrus aromas, of orange, and also some aromas of vanilla and a hint of leather. The chocolate flavor gets sweeter, as well as the other flavors. The second third is of course still very creamy, and each draw releases a generous amount of white velvety smoke. The draw remains open and consistent throughout the middle third.

Final third:

In the final third, the BHK 52 reveals its true self, a real Cohiba, but with stronger and bitter aromas than the average vitola. Among the very creamy and sweet flavors, we now can also get some hints of cedar, coffee and bitter chocolate. The bitter aromas from the second third, of cedar and citrus are still present, but overall, the bitterness is not overwhelming and arises only at the right moment, like in a good dark chocolate or Italian espresso. We can also pick up notes of vanilla from time to time. The BHK 52 then reveals an amazing balance of flavors that linger nicely on the palate. It is a pleasure to smoke this cigar until the nub, where hints of spice, that of typical Cohiba, reveal the full complexity of the BHK 52.

In summary, this cigar is an exceptional Cohiba that goes well with special occasions. Its perfect construction and flawless balance will delight you, from moment you open the beautiful lacquered box to the moment you have to let that beautiful cigar in the ashtray.

Smoking time:

60 – 90 Minutes

Amazing. I was gifted ones if these by a friend. What an amazing cigar. Over an hour of pure delight: creamy, complex, and very tasty.

Enjoy with caution, you'll want more and will look at it cigars as inferior.
