The cigar is looking great; it is fully hand-rolled, using a longfiller. It is firm to the touch when squeezed between the fingers.
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of tobacco. And the pre-light draw gives some spices, chocolate and floral notes.
Once cut, the draw is great, a bit tight, but just enough. It then opens up nicely. When lit, there are instantly some spices on the lips.
The first third of the cigar is dominated by spices; there is good hit of pepper and toasted tobacco right from the start. Once the strong spices dissipate, one can taste some darker flavors such as black coffee, leather, and also some earthy and woodsy aromas of cedar. There are also some nutty and sweet toasty notes. Overall, the first third is medium.
In the middle third, the peppery flavors are still dominant, there is also a strong taste of tobacco. There also earthy and salty notes, overall pretty dry. But aromas of chocolate and sweet toffee also join the mix, making this third pretty complex while still pretty mild.
In the final third, the flavors are even more complex, in addition to tobacco, cedar and coffee, there is now some nice creamy aromas, some sweet vanilla and a kind of spice that one can find in pastries. You do not want to put it down, it is very smooth and pleasant.
In summary, this a great medium bodied everyday cigar, full of flavors.

- Great little cigar for the money. Standard Partagas flavor, good construction and burn. Would buy again.
Good for what it is
Having now smoked and enjoyed 5 out of a box of 25, I confess I'm a bit torn on my rating. Two so far have been kind of a mess. Firm draws, some burn issues, and rough appearance... But then three others were perfect. Loads of smoke on an easy draw with a dead on straight burn and no touch ups! Flavor wise, its mostly Cuban tobacco. Nothing too complex. Tends to smoke hot so slow, easy puffs are recommended.
Due to some of the issues mentioned above and along with the somewhat flat taste I was leaning towards more of a 3 star review- but then it hits you! This is a damn good cigar for $79/ box.
Is it a serie D no. 4? No. But for what you're paying its not at all bad. Personally I'm unsure if I'd reorder again. Yes the price is good, but for around $40 more you can get some seriously good sticks like the Upmann Half Corona... But I highly recommend trying these at least once. You may be surprised!
- Hard pull from the beginning, other than that very good smoke. would buy again.
nice little smoke
- consistent - well constructed little cigar - and the price is right
A favourite inexpensive cigar
- I like smaller gauge cigars and this is one of my favourites. Tasty, medium bodied, great burn. Inexpensive and worth every penny.
