He wait is seemingly over.
Cigar store owners and vendors inform Cigar Aficionado that three dimensions of Cohiba Behike ultra-luxury, highly ranked and heavily desired cigar manufacturer –are coming into retailer shelves following about an 18-month hiatus.
At a recent interview,” Fernando Domínguez, ” the manager of top brands such as Imperial Brands, the associate with Habanos S.A.,” Cuba’s tobacco monopoly, stated:”We’ll buy Cohiba Behike from the market shortly.” His prediction has now come to pass.
Only two big stores surveyed did not possess the cigars in stock, the Casa del Habano at Hamburg, Germany and also the Casa at Cancún, Mexico, however the owner of the shop stated the cigars ought to be hitting there shortly.
The Behike BHK lineup premiered in early 2010 and immediately gained wide acclaim among cigar connoisseurs across the globe. Collectors snapped the cigar nearly as fast as it had been available. The very first question frequently asked about entering a cigar store was,”have you got some Behikes?”
An Range of esoteric Opuses.
Dominguez verified that inferior tobacco harvests throughout the past couple of years had contributed into the shortages of Behikes. “It is about the harvest. Tobacco, in the conclusion of the afternoon, is the agricultural product. It is matter to this weather. The weather states –that the climate–hasn’t been really good over the previous couple of decades.”
Dominguez also verified that”Among the features of Behike is that a brand new leaf which we included, medio tiempo. It comes in both top leaves of this plant, which are more challenging to get. That is the reason why that clarifies the taste, the flavor and the lack from the raw substance. That clarifies the limited amounts.”
In case Dominguez’s justification is true, the Cubans must be credited with carrying Behikes off the industry rather than attempting to fulfill need with less particular tobaccos.
Do not expect to buy any of those Behikes about the cheap. Back in Havana, the 52 dimensions goes to get a nearly cheap $25.
