Is a Behike 58 on the Way?

Is a Behike 58 on the Way?

The end of the year is approaching fast and we’re expecting big things for 2020. There’s plenty of speculation among Cuban cigar lovers around what to expect from the new year – and there’s one rumour that we cannot take our mind off. If you want to find out what may be one of the most highly-anticipated announcements of 2020 – then keep reading. 


HAVE YOU HEARD? – So, we’re sure you’re itching to hear the news! Well, rumour has it that during the annual Habanos meeting, there were some samples passed around… some Cohiba Cigars samples. It’s believed that those were samples of a new Behike family member – the Behike 58. Yes, that’s right – it’s expected that the next release from the Behike line will measure at a whopping 58 ring gauge! If this is true, that would make it the thickest ring gauge on the market. Unfortunately, the finer details of this possible release are nowhere to be seen, as there has been no news regarding the length of the smoke or when it may be released. Although, with the 10th anniversary of the line coming in February – could this come as a limited edition cigar? We guess we’ll have to wait and see. 


A PHENOMENON IN THE CIGAR WORLD – If you’ve never heard of the Cohiba Behike line then we’re pretty sure you’ve been living under a rock. But, for those of you who are none the wiser – they’re probably one of the most luxury lines to come out of the Cuban cigar world. The line was created in celebration of the brand’s 45th anniversary and is produced at very limited quantities each year. So, as you can imagine, they’re not the easiest smokes to get your hands on! What makes this line so special, you ask? They’re filled with the extremely rare Medio Tempo leaf, extracted from the top of the tobacco plant. With the most exposure to the sun, it offers extraordinary character and taste to those lucky enough to smoke it. They’re considered top tier of the Cohiba product profile – and with the success of its contenders, you can imagine how good it tastes.
