The Partagas Original Cigar – continuing quality through age
There’s a certain quality that comes with age and experience. Passing the course of time while staying true to quality, integrity, and taste is what Partagas has been doing in their long and rich tradition. Available now at Mike’s Cigars, this Partagas will continue to deliver quality through age. Whoever said vintage isn’t a good thing, hasn’t tried this Partagas cigar.
Dating back to 1845, their practice is unmistakable. That rich tradition comes through full circle with the Partagas Original Cigar line. A rich and robust premium smoke, this cigar truly lives up to the Partagas long living tradition of quality and excellence.
The secret of today's rich Partagas cigars lies in their wrapper leaves. The Cameroon wrapper and Dominican and Mexican filler make Partagas a rich and robust smoke that is satisfying and smooth. Grown in Cameroon, the Central West African country where the steaming, sub-tropical climate unique to the fourth parallel is ideal for growing superb wrapper leaves, Cameroon wrappers have no equals for rich flavor and texture. So rich yet never harsh, a Partagas cigar has all the flavor and character you’d expect from a premium cigar company rich in traditional values and quality. Also accompanying the Camerooon wrapper are Mexican San Andreas binders and fillers that come from the Dominican Republic as well as Mexico. All are combined to form this tightly packed quality Partagas cigar.
Upon first opening of a Partagas Original cigar, you’ll notice the rich chocolate and sepia colored wrapper. Elegantly constructed, its tight seams and double cap with smooth skin has minimal veins to make this parejo cigar a true beauty for your cigar repertoire. Once lit you will notice the flavor is a smooth, almost buttered toast blend. The aroma is of a sweet, grassy coffee. A few draws and you will begin to reach the smooth leathery and baking spice flavors and even getting some spicy cedar taste into the mix. The subtle yet pronounced woody note is wonderful without overpowering the cigars foundation of coffee and tobacco.
The Partagas line will always remain a medium to full body stogie, but it stays as smooth as can be from start to finish. The Partagas gives a cigar aficionado the best of both worlds with consistent flavors and varied warm notes and of course a solid construction of a cigar, hands down.
No smoking den is complete without some wisdom. What better way to achieve that than with a box of Partagas at the center of your den. This is the standard Partagas line which was created under the direction of Cifuentes in Jamaica in 1974 and then moved to the Dominican Republic in 1978, bearing the famed red band. What’s not to like about this cigar? It lights easily, burns evenly and offers a perfect draw. Medium-to-full in body and featuring a Cameroon wrapper, it greets you with a rich, deep caramelized taste with bright highlights that earns your admiration right away. There’s a toasty aroma which has a hint of spice and the cigar has a medium finish that is fluid and easy. Sweet, delicious and consistent, it’s an excellent companion for any occasion thanks to its army of sizes.
