Presentation

Partagas Aristocrats comes in a dress box of 25 cigars with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-C/L-12,13-n-25

Dimensions:

Length: 129 mm

Diameter: 15.87 mm

Ring gauge: 40

Shape: Petit Cetro

Appearance:

The Partagas Aristocrats is fully hand-made, and this gives it a rustic kind of look. Nevertheless, the construction is very nice, the cigar is quite firm and tight, and it is also box pressed. The wrapper has a nice dark maduro color.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

At cold, the Partagas Aristocrats smells of hay and of citrus. The cold draw releases a subtle woody flavor, mixed with a nice earthy flavor. One can also notice a note of cheese.

Burn/ Draw

The Partagas Aristocrats cuts very easily and after it, the draw can be a bit tight, but it opens up in the first third. The burn line is a bit uneven, but that doesn’t affect the quality of the smoke. The amount of smoke generated from this stogie is rather normal but the ashes hold firm, without any flakes.

Initial third:

Once lit, the Partagas Aristocrats greets you with a familiar tobacco taste that is typical of Partagas, however, it is very soft, very mellow with also some nutty notes. Alongside, we can also detect some woody flavors, forest-ground like. But what balances the softness of this first third is the mild peppery taste that kicks in in the early third. The spicy notes, of green pepper, continue on and some bitterness from coffee also arises. As secondary smoking flavors, we can notice some cheese-like hints and some cocoa.

Middle third:

In the second third, the Partagas Aristocrats becomes creamier. The cigar goes on with the same smooth flavors of cedar and toasted tobacco. Despite the creaminess of the cigar, it starts to show some character, and it is getting a bit stronger, while not being too aggressive. Subtle touches of bitterness from coffee or salt also appear and reveal the complexity of the cigar. There are also some discreet notes of leather that makes the whole cigar a bit stronger than the first third.

Final third:

In the last third, the Partagas Aristocrats continues on with the same flavor profile of strong toasted tobacco, joined by fresh woody flavors, even some sawed pine. There are once again some tastes of coffee, and a nice zing of pepper. Somehow, the cigar is finishing where it started, with the exception of some pleasing notes of flowers, heather, nuts and of tar.

In summary, the Partagas Aristocrats is a very nice cigar, thanks to its impeccable construction. All this makes the famous Partagas taste available at a lesser cost.

Smoking time:

40 - 60 Minutes

Perfection! , 1/12/2018
By Joel
This AWESOME CIGAR was part of my second order to Cigar Terminal!! This cigar isn't for the faint of heart, haha. Saying this cigar is FULL BODIED is ALMOST an understatement! I have to call this cigar BOLD from start to finish for sure!!
If anyone is on the fence about buying this cigar, I'd have to say you've got to give it a try! The first quarter to third of the cigar starts out with a medium to almost tight draw. None of that being ANY issue at all. Once you get into the "meat" of the cigar the draw completely opens up! As soon as this cigar lights the flavor is nothing less than incredible! It has such an awesome odor as soon as you light it. The flavor is BOLD pretty much from the get go! If you like a spicy pepper flavor then this cigar will be your new found treasure! Many cigars take a while to get to that spicy pepper flavor and some never attain those flavors. BUT, with this cigar, that awesome spiciness/pepper flavor is immediately discovered!

Once you get to the middle section of this cigar the draw opens up and then the REAL PARTY BEGINS! The flavor in the middle section becomes even more bold releasing even more spicy flavors along with that pepper hit! You'll find all those traditional Cuban odors and flavors with this one especially once you hit the middle of this cigar. You should also be able to taste a hint of leather in the middle section as well.

Now as the excitement of smoking this great cigar comes to an end as you enter the final third of it. You'll hit a VERY BOLD FULL BODIED ending! This cigar should provide ANYONE an extremely bold ending. The spiciness along with the pepper ending proves to be very intense! Like others have stated, make sure you have some food on your stomach. Even if you don't have food on your stomach it shouldn't pose any issues for you. BUT in my opinion, having food on your stomach smoking most Cuban cigars is never a bad idea in the first place. I find with bold spicy cigars like this one, having food on your stomach just makes it a better relaxing experience! I don't think this cigar would be one for a newer cigar smoker. This gem in my opinion should be reserved for a more seasoned cigar smoker. Not saying it would be a bad first cigar for a newer cigar smoker. But I'm thinking this is a cigar that would be better enjoyed working up to because of its bold intense flavor right out of the gate! So many cigars don't even produce intense flavors like this one even when you're towards the end of the cigar. A lot of cigars don't have as much of that bold flavor on finish as this one has at the very beginning. This cigar STARTS bold and ends intensely bold and spicy! And it's very true that these cigars don't need any additional attention. Meaning that after you receive these, one could smoke one after a short resting period from shipping! No extra aging is needed at all!!

I give this cigar a HUGE 5 STAR RATING! I will definitely be purchasing more of these awesome cigars. I try to keep on hand at least 6 different Cuban cigars in my humidors at any given time. Right now I've got 8 different brands of Cuban cigars. With 8 different brands right now it does take a lot of humidors to house them or at least one big tall standup unit, but that's totally fine with me, haha. This cigar is by far my most bold cigars I've got now. I like to keep a range of different cigars. Starting out semi mild and ending bold and intense. So by adding these cigars to my collection, it's rounded out my cigars as a whole. I can't wait to smoke another one of these! I totally recommend these cigars to ALL. I hope this review might tempt you into purchasing a box of these great cigars. I'm positive you won't regret the purchase of these! And as most already know, Cigar Terminal is the REAL DEAL!! Mary and Ken continue to impress me! Please keep up the excellent work you both do day in day out! Take care all.

Very good product, with fair price. Extremely recommended for daily smoke.
Small package, great value and flavors , 6/6/2017
By Christopher
Starts off with cedar, leather, vanilla and spice. Transitions to a sweet, toasty, chocolate, plum profile by the second third. Much the same into the final third with additional dark roast coffee notes. Total time 45m. Firm construction, V cut with a tight draw, good solid ash.
Classic Partagas flavours, and great value , 5/4/2017
By Dooges
I am rapidly becoming a huge Partagas fan. Just got these and already loving the great flavours and subtle transitions this cigar gives. At first I think I was too excited and with a slightly tight draw I smoked it too fast, not getting much more than a woody Cuban tobacco. I slowed it down and started getting hints of that coffee/chocolate flavour and that hint of Partagas flavour that I have trouble describing.

Plenty of strength and flavours for such a small cigar. Have most the box to go and looking forward to incremental smoking and ageing to see what develops.

Thumbs up to CigarTerminal for their awesome service, fast discrete postage, and first class product. My number 1 Cuban cigar supplier.
