Last night I was fortunate enough to try a Cohiba Behike 56. This is the largest of the 3 Behikes at 6.5" x 56 and is a good 90 minute smoke.

As to be expected at this price point, the construction was flawless, with an even burn and an ash that held for about 2". Draw was good throughout was mouthfuls of creamy smoke with each puff. At no point was a relight or touch-up required.

The 1st third produces a delicate spiciness with creamy coffee latte flavour. This is a vey smooth cigar! In the 2nd third, the sweetness of the coffee & cream is replaced by woody, grassy flavours - a typical Cohiba flavour profile. The final third is similar to the 2nd third and the flavour profile doesn't really evolve.

Overall, I must say that this was a very enjoyable cigar. It was very smooth and had the typical Cohiba flavour profile but with a touch more sweetness. However at >$50 per stick, it is not good value. I certainly won't buy a box or even a single; but I'd happily smoke it if I was gifted one :)

I'm pretty sure that any cigar smoker would agree that the Cohiba Behike are probably one of the best line of cigars (including 56).

Never had chance to smoke a Cohiba Behike but after your review, kwsaw63, I might consider finally having one - it sounds so tasty!

Clark - It was tasty but the high price puts me off buying them. In absolute terms, v few cigars I've tried can come close but other cigars are better value.

You're so lucky, kwsaw63, I almost envy you - to smoke a Cohiba Behike, and to enjoy it - you're a happy person

I don't know if a Cohiba Behike will be in my cigar budget any time soon, but it's high on my list of cigars I would like to try some day. I figure we have to save our rewards for later and have something to dream about. That's what I do with cars and other toys.

I'm saving the really expensive cigars like the Cohiba Behike brand for when I get older. I figure I'll have more money by then and not feel guilty. Besides, I'd hate to spoil myself and have to return to a lower quality brand after I've tasted the best.

Fair review, kwsaw63. I do enjoy the line too, but I wish they were more affordable.
If anybody wants to send me a couple - you're welcome
The Behikes are officially included in my gift list!

I had the opportunity to smoke this piece of heave once. What can I say? Words are not enough to say how much I liked that beauty and am eager to try even more in future.

Nice review, kwsaw63. Thank you!
As to the Cohiba behike line, I tried both BHK 54 and BHK 56, and I didn't like them. Maybe, they were too young for me at that moment??

Yes, they might be a bit young or going through a 'sick' period. It also could be that the Behikes are simply not the flavour profile you like. Different strokes for different folks and all that.

It's quite possible that I won't enjoy them in the future, as well, since I tend to smoke mostly mild to medium bodied stogies, and these ones are a little bit too strong for me.
Thanks for the advise,kwsaw63. You're helpful, as always!

If you like mild to medium smokes, have you tried the Hoyo De Monterrey Petit Robustos and Epicure No.2?
