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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Great tasting cigar for a very good price.
The service from Cigar terminal was top class.
It's a Partagas
- I am still unsure about these cigars. When they first arrived I tried one. Found it a bit tight, not much of a draw. I have noticed this with Partagas in the past. Tried one yesterday, nice even burn but still tight. Gonna let the rest age a bit and get back to you.
Good Ole Cuban
Wow. What a great cigar for an wven greater price.
Nothing over the top, no shockers, just classic cuban flavor with no negatives. Lots of flavor but wont make you sick. Woody, cedar, nutty, barny, coffee under tones.
Great Every Day Partagas
- Fantastic cigar at a way cheap price, a true Partagas, woody, nutty, pepper, bold, yet not going to kill you and easy to smoke.
Great cigar break
Perfect for break time. Cuban taste and a nice hint of chocolate & pepper. Even burn with an even draw and plenty of smoke - all without a non eye watering price. Box now has 3 less...
