Before lighting up
Like its older sibling, Partagas Serie D No. 4’s, the box gives out cedary and honey creamy scents. The pre-light draw is perfect and the wrapper leaves a sweet flavor on the lips. The cold draw is easy, not too easy though, and gives typical Partagas flavors, tobacco, earthy tones and also some sweetness.
The burn line might start a bit uneven at the beginning, but then corrects itself. Creates a nice medium grey ash, which holds on for almost the half of the cigar. A generous amount of smoke is released by this cigar.
The cigar starts off with lots of pepper, but after a couple of puffs, the pepper fades and leaves ample space for a good tobacco flavor. There is also plenty of coffee, cocoa and some notes of leather, wood and earth. The finish is long and woody.
In the middle third, the flavors are picking up in intensity and so does the pepper. The flavors are short of being harsh, but there is a strong punch of dry wood, black, cayenne pepper. The youth of the cigar is a factor certainly, but it is never too harsh. The body is closer to full now
In the final third, the harshness goes away, but the flavors get stronger, now a full body cigar. The flavors are full of wood and black pepper.
In summary, it is a very powerful short smoke, which is pretty much as shorter version of the Partagas Serie D No.4, perfect of a short break or a winter smoke.
Smoking time: 20 – 30 Minutes
