The Cohiba Behike has the same length as the Lancero and

the same girth as the Siglo VI, the two factory rings that have

contributed to build the prestige of this brand. Corporación

Habanos announced that this 4,000 cigar production lot is unique,

for it WILL NOT BE PRODUCED AGAIN.


The Cohiba Behike is sold only on special orders in elegant

boxes fashioned by Elie Bleu from Galuchet, mother of pearl, ebony,

sycamore, cedar and ox bone and containing 40 numbered cigars.

The humidors will include a plate with the humidor number (from 1 to 100)

and the Cohiba Behike lot number it contains.


Habanos wanted this cigar to be not only the most exclusive in the

world, but probably the most expensive in the world. The name BEHIKE

comes from a witch doctor name of the Taino tribe who performed sacred

rites with tobacco.


Ever since Corporación Habanos conceived this project originally

to commemorate the brand’s 40th anniversary, the project has remained

completely secret since 2001. To that end, plants from the seed bed,

the best growing fields of Vuelta Abajo, and even the best growers

were selected. The outside wrapper leaf were chosen by Pancho Cuba,

Alejandro Robaina and Antonio María Paz, three of the most prestigious

Cuban tobacco growers.


The cigar containers are made by Elie Bleu; the cigars are prepared

by Norma, the most experienced hand-roller in Havana’s El Laguito factory


Only 4,000 sticks of the luxurious Behike will be produced, each one

numbered, adding that it is “unique and unrepeatable” and that it “captures

the spirit of Cohiba.”


Imagine a Siglo VI with the length of a Lancero, the 52 ring gauge triple

robusto Behike with a pigtailed finish is a blockbuster. Its presence in the

hand is massive.The pigtailed head gives it a cute shape despite the long and

heavy weight body.


TASTING of the beast:

The first third delivers a regular but massive smoke. Grassy, vanillin with

hints of delicate tobacco spices like warnings before the storm. Once you’re

almost finished with the first third and a little bit tired of this massive and

regular draw, the Cohiba Behike takes you by surprise with an explosion of tastes

and delicate spiciness.It rises like a thunder and develops in an exponential way !

Loads of oak overwhelms your mouth in a generous and heavy smoke. The draw

becomes easier, faster, more complex and you’ll have to make an extra effort to

overcome the beast. Once you get used to its new style, it mutates again. As you

prepare for the finale, the cigar turns into a live volcano expressing all its

complexity and strength. At one point you’ll have to take your time and cool down

with puffing because you realize that your taste buds are saturated and your burning

tongue is overloaded with the magic effect of the Behike !


The Cohiba Behike is a masterpiece and is here to stand among the legendary cigars.

We’ll wait to see how it will age in a 12 to 18 months..

The only problem is the price. Habanos will make only 100 humidors containing 40

cigars each in 2007. The suggested retail price was USD$28 000. That’s outrageous, but there’s no

doubt that the cigars smoke like a dream…and thier are only but a few left for retail

sale.Most have been privatley sold and stored.
