The Cohiba Siglo VI was first released way back in 2003. Often the year of the launch for Cuban cigars, mark a particular moment which represents one of the better, if not the best, years. The products that have been tested for this review belong to the very first batch, when the Siglo VI was first presented. This Cañonazo size overshadowed the much acclaimed Cohiba Esplendidos with ease.
Considering the year of this release, we are in front of a vintage Cohiba cigar, which has aged for over 15 years.
Visually, the cigar is dressed in a smooth wrapper leaf of a Colorado Maduro shade. The construction flawless.

Cohiba Siglo VI – First Batch 2003: the cold draw reveals hints of wood and cocoa. The first puffs are sweet and the cigar releases a mix of vegetal notes and fine spices.
Overall, the Cohiba Siglo VI – First Batch 2003 releases an ever evolving smoke, with an excellent intensity. The balance is pronounced. Compared to younger cigars, where the classic Cohiba aroma of ripe fruit is more pronounced, the smoke here is instead spicier and more masculine. The sense of fulfillment is exceptional.
