The Cohiba Maduro 5 Magicos is using a darker wrapper, mark of an aged wrapper. It looks superb, without any flaws, and it is incredibly smooth and silky. The cigar is pretty short and fat, but looks amazing. The rolling seems perfect, almost no veins visible. It is pretty firm to the touch from the head to the foot. The triple cap is almost blending in with the wrapper. The Maduro 5 Magicos sports the usual Cohiba band and an additional black band with MADURO 5 printed in gold letters.
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of dry tobacco and hay. There are also notes of cocoa, wood and cinnamon. Once cut, the pre-light draw gives some wood, sweet cinnamon, wood, hay and hints of graham cracker.
The draw is a bit too open, and lighting the cigar is easy. The draw corrects itself during the first third, and the cigar keeps burning slow and without getting too hot throughout the whole cigar. The burn line is good and does not need any touch up. The first few draws are not too powerful, and each draw generates an ample amount of smoke. The light gray ash holds on very well, up to almost two inches. The very first draws reveal some wood, coffee and salty leather flavors.
The first third of the cigar is dominated by lots of smoky wood, leather. Each draw is amazing in revealing more flavors. There are also notes of cocoa, nuts, black licorice and earthy mushrooms. There is just enough spice. The retrohale has some cedar profile. The finish is long, very creamy with some black pepper staying on the palate. Overall, the first third is very creamy, almost syrupy. The strength is in the mild to medium category.
In the middle third, the strength of the cigar picks up just a bit, now a medium bodied cigar, in the same time the flavors are also getting stronger and bolder. There is still plenty of wood, dark espresso, spices while the chocolate notes faded to the background after the halfway mark. The finish is very creamy, with hints of salty nut. There are also notes of salty leather and sweet tobacco. The flavors are very well balanced and they mix beautifully together. The cigar is now producing an ample amount of smoke, while the ash holds on very strongly which shows the perfect construction of the cigar.
In the final third, the strength of the cigar goes up one more notch, and is felt on the back of the throat alongside with a good amount of spices. The flavors in the foreground are much more on the earthy tone than in the second third. There is dry earth, truffle, earthy tobacco and some mineral notes. The creaminess of the cigar is dropping on the background, and leaving more space to rich wood and coffee; there are also notes of leather, salty peanut, and chocolate. The finish is now shorter, with some wood notes, and roasted coffee beans. The smoke remains fairly cool throughout the whole cigar and still produces ample amount of smoke clouds.
In summary, this cigar is a real gem. Of course it is not an everyday cigar, but if you are looking to celebrate something, don’t look any further.

Even before lighting this cigar, when you take one look at the darker wrapper and its construction, you'll notice that this is an above average cigar.
Its aroma is strong and spicy and if you want that kick from a cigar this is it.
When lighting it, you'll notice that the draw is very smooth and the burn is almost perfect. From all the Magicos I've had, I've never experienced a poorly rolled one (either too tight or too loose).
The flavour in the first third, is rich and earthy with hints of leather. it's a really enjoyable and smooth smoke to begin with.
As you continue on, the earthy undertone in flavour still exists but is complimented by a coffee aroma, although it's not as sweet as the Genios.
The last third keeps up with a consistent burn and you'll notice the hints of pepper become gradually stronger.
It's a smoke that I thoroughly enjoy and for a cigar it packs a bit of punch. I've read mixed reviews on this cigar but as yet I have not been disappointed. I highly recommend it over a few drinks throughout the night and you can even finish it off with a nice coffee and you'll notice that the tastes compliment each other.
Well done Cohiba on this cigar.
(matched well with a good rum or a rum based cocktail)

- wish to have it in my humidor
A great Cohiba cigar...
Perfect construction, a work of art.
Upon cutting it, you taste a rich flavorful cigar.
Upon lighting it, it is so smooth and the spice oozes out a very nice coffee and chocolate taste.
A perfect burn for the most part, lots of smoke.
The final is where the kicker comes in and let's you know it's a Cohiba and the power comes in before you know, still very smooth. Nice spice but not overpowering.
I put few away to let them age . This Cuban cigar won't disappoint.
I will get another box of these since they are very very good...
