Cohiba Behike BHK 52 Cigar – Single Cigar
Ring Gauge: 52 Length: 4 3/4 inch in length Behikes it will have a limited annual production so when they are gone – that’s it for the year.
I think that makes them a candidate for laying down, maturing and collecting and many of our clients are already laying down a quantity of BHK’s
The BHK’s have a different blend to the 40th anniversary Behikes (aged 5 years) as well as an extra Medio tiempo filler leaf which will give the cigar a very distinct flavour characteristic as this is a dark leaf from the top of the plant. The name is an ancient Taino Indian word for the bunches of tobacco leaves that Columbus first saw being smoked by the original inhabitants of Cuba, the earliest known form of a Habano.
The leaves for Cohiba are the selection of the selection from the 5 finest Vegas de Primera in San Juan y Martinez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone. Uniquely amongst Habanos up to three of Cohiba’s filler leaves, the seco, ligero and the rare medio tiempo, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels. This unique process produces a special aroma and flavour you will only find in Cohiba.
