Partagas…….. Strength, Taste And Elegance

The picture above reveals the richness of color that appears on the Partagas bands used today.  The ever satisfying Partagas Serie D No. 4 and the stately Partagas Lusitanias are only but two that I could fit into the picture but if I had to only choose 2 from the extensive line, these would be my first choices. The Partagas 8-9-8, named after the way they are packed into the boxes, have been a bit mild these days but still have all of the grassiness, tea and spice that this cigar used to reveal..

I have mentioned before how impressed I am with how the Partagas Serie D No 5 has developed since it was released as a LE in 2008.  IF you can get your hands on one of these you’ll find all of the Partagas flavors coming together in a very balanced blend that will leave you wanting more.

When I first started smoking cigars I stayed away from those that were said to be strong and developed a great relationship with Fonseca and a few others but I now know that learning HOW to properly smoke a Cuban will always give you an acceptable puff that doesn’t irritate in any way.  Patience is the KEY.

I now have a few Partagas Serie P No 2’s at all times since I discovered how fine this Piramide is rolled, blended and tastes…. There are so many more Partagas cigars that deserve mention in this entry….. I’ll get to them…. Stay tuned!
