Cigar shop owners and distributors tell Cigar Aficionado that all three sizes of Behike—Cohiba's ultra-luxury, highly rated and greatly desired cigar brand—are returning to retailer shelves after roughly an 18-month hiatus. The last few years had led to the shortages of Behikes. "It's about the crop. Tobacco, at the end of the day, is an agricultural product. It's subject to the weather. The weather conditions—the climate—has not been very good over the past few years.", was the reason given. Behike is a new leaf that we added, medio tiempo. It comes from the two top leaves of the plant, that are more difficult to get. That's the reason that explains the flavor, the taste and the scarcity in the raw material. That explains the limited quantities.
The BHK 52 is the smallest of the three sizes in the line at 4 3/4 inches by 52 ring gauge.The BHK 52 earned Cigar Aficionado's Cigar of the Year for 2010, with a score of 97 points. The other sizes are the BHK 54 (5 3/4 inches long by 54 ring) and BHK 56 (6 1/2 by 56).
The Behike BHK line was launched in early 2010 and quickly gained wide acclaim among cigar connoisseurs around the world. Collectors snapped up the new cigar almost as quickly as it became available. The first question often asked upon entering a cigar shop was, "Do you have any Behikes?"
Cohiba Behike, “Cohiba’s best kept secret”, was disclosed as a new Linea of Cohiba in 2010 during the 12th Festival del Habano. The new Cohiba Behike, which accompanies since the other lines already existing in Cohiba, is the most exclusive línea of Habanos.
Cohiba Behike, is produced each year in extremely limited quantities. Its blend incorporated for the first time the “ Medio Tiempo “, a leaf that attributes to the cigar exceptional character and flavor.
Behike is considered since the ultimate expression of the taste and aroma of the Habano.
Since it was launched in 2010, the Behike bands bear the Cohiba Indian head in an embossed holographic paper, including an exclusive security hologram in each one of them.
This new band design established a new technological trend in the way the bands of Cohiba would look in the future.
Now in 2014 the Behike band incorporates a new hologram design with increased security measures which permit a better traceability of each band and cigar.
The rest of the band stays with the same design and shape.
All the three Behike formats, BHK 52, BHK 54 y BHK 56 will incorporate progressively this new hologram’ design.
