Before lighting up
Upon opening a box of Partagas Serie D No. 4’s, you get a cedary and creamy scent. Strong aromas of cedar and honey ooze from the foot of the cigar, while a strong earthy smell is present on the wrapper. The pre-light draw is perfect and the wrapper leaves a sweet flavor on the lips.
The draw is great from the very start. The cigar might occasionally start burning unevenly, but corrects itself with no effort. The ash is firm, dark grey – almost black – and stays on the cigar until almost two inches long. The cigar delivers plenty of smoke that has a long peaty, earthy finish, it smokes well until the very end.
The Partagas Serie D No. 4 starts with a coffee and chocolate flavor with the overtone of leather and tobacco. The cigar mellows down and gets more complex. Woody, earthy and sweet with a medium to full body.
In the second third, the cigar turns to full body, even chewy. The flavors of the first third become more intense, but not harsh. It is bold and toothy.
In the last third, the cigar gets even stronger, rich and intense but not overwhelming. It becomes more creamy, complex and refined.
To summarize, this is a very tasty cigar with full body, with complex and interesting flavors, without overwhelming the smoker too much strength.
Smoking time: 45 – 90 Minutes
