Cohiba Sublime EL 2004

Cohiba Sublime Edicion Limitada 2004
Box Code: Unknown
Measurements: 6 Ĺ x 54
Size: Sublime (Double Robusto)


Pre light
Itís a nice, sunny day here in Ohio, and Iíve got the day off from work. I decided I needed a great cigar to celebrate my recent promotion. I opened up the humidor and quickly grabbed one of my remaining Sublimes.
A thick cigar with excellent construction, it is covered with a dark, oily wrapper with a few noticeable veins. The cigar cuts easily with the large ring guage. Pre-light aromas and flavors are of cocoa and coffee bean.

1 Third
The cigar lights easily wih a good draw and even burn. The palate is filled with cocoa, coffee bean, and sweet flavors. Further into the cigar, notes of roasted espresso flavors become apparent leaving the palate moist.

2 Third
The ash is forming very well, and the cigar is burning quite cool. The smoke is plentiful and aromatic. A slight touchup was required.
The flavors are remaining full and complex.

Last third
There is no slowing down on this cigar. A burn issue was corrected with two minor touchups, but the flavors and aroma more than make up for that. There is a pepper note on the finish. Some mineral notes were also present. Yes, I smoked it to the nub.

Overall impression:
An absolutely wonderful cigar from start to finish. I think it is the best EL, if not overall cigar, I have ever smoked.


Rating:
6/6 smoke rings (a classic cigar)

Re: Cohiba Sublime EL 2004

Chris:

Great review - I have to say that I had the same exact experience minus any burn issues (not even a minor one.) I am curious to see how long the smoke took you from beginning to nub. Took me 2 hours 15 minutes and Loren was still smoking his for awhile after I was done.

One day I hope to smoke a cigar as good as that one again.
