Gifted by my colleague Conny.
Made by one of the Master Rollers at the Partagas Factories. He’s one of the Master Rollers for the new maduro line.
Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.
Wrapper: Milk chocolate brown wrapper, a little rough but not to extreme. Oily and still smooth feel.
Construction: Firm but still giving feel.
Cold draw: Light hay notes.
1st third: It act’s more like a Partagas Mille Fleurs, sweet notes, hazelnuts and beechwood.
2nd third: Gets a hint of dark chocolate but keeps the smooth hazelnut sweetness.
The burn: Burns steady and sharp, firm and stable ash with white-gray tones. Burns slowly.
Smoke: Light smoke, cool feel on the tounge, not a tight draw but still a little push work has to be done.
3rd third: A little peppery notes appear, but still keeps the same as previous parts.
Conclusion: Very interesting experience, how the same tobacco in a Partagas Serie D No.4 couldn’t make this mild cigar.
Result: If this was a real Partagas production cigar, I would give this 88 points. It’s good but it’s no classic.
