The Cohiba Piramides Extra is a complex and powerful medium-full Torpedo, 6.3” (160mm) long, of 54 ring gauge, and comes in a cabinet of 10 cigars. It is one of the newest vitolas in the most exclusive line of the most prestigious Habanos brand which was released in 2012 as regular production. Habanos lovingly refers to this new Cohiba Torpedo as the “Grand Lord”. As in the Cohiba Behike, the exceptional ‘medio tiempo’ tobacco leave is used in the blend of the cigar, which makes this Habano so special with a unique flavor and strong character. This cigar is so complex that it keeps on giving, and won’t let you go before you are satiated and slightly dizzy. This feeling goes on well long after you are done smoking.
The Cohiba Piramides Extra is a commanding cigar.
• Has a new band with 3 holograms to deter counterfeiting.
• Nice complexity throughout the cigar.
It joins as the seventh in the line-up of the Linea Classica: Exquisitos, Esplendidos, Lanceros, Panetelas, Coronas Especiales, Robustos and Piramides Extra.

This is a very well-constructed cigar. No soft or hard spots. The wrapper has a dark brown sheen to it, like brown shoe polish. The foot is snugly bunched.
Before lighting up
Aromas of coffee, cocoa, leather and some light honey.
The draw is a bit firm, the burn is even as can be.
You taste the Cohiba grassiness along with some cream and leather. Mixed in is a hint of licorice and that Cuban twang. Subtle and refined.
The draw loosens up. Still grassy with some more cream. The Cuban twang still stays dominant. Now you get some chocolate as well.
Cream and chocolate now dominate the profile with still the grassiness and leather and earth.
In summary, the flavors get bolder as the cigar progresses but still smooth and never hot or harsh.
