Cohiba Secreto is one of the Maduro 5 cigars, a proposal for 2007. The Cuban Maduro Wrapper to be used in this new line of Cohiba cigars is five years aged. This smaller cigar is a very intensive smoke with harmonious mix of flavours of chocolate, cocoa and cream with a slightly sweet taste.
Cohiba Secretos’ mark of excellence is the abundance of flavor.
- • Cedar, oak, chocolate, cashew, and coffee come together to give gratifying intensity.
- • What makes its trademark are the extra aging of the tobacco and the attention given to the leafs in the rolling.

Before lighting up
The cigar gives a wonderful taste of dark chocolate prior to lighting.
It has a wonderful draw and built a straight white ash with each puff.
Cinnamon, cardamom, coffee, and classic Cohiba grass are the predominant flavors. The aroma is all Cohiba.
Some sweet notes start to appear (caramel and/or toffee) along with that Cuban twang. Also detected some more coffee and a little more of that Cohiba grassiness.
Flavors open up with some aged tobacco and leather. Extremely well balanced and complex.
In summary, this cigar is a powerhouse full of rich flavors packed into a small format.
