Following the Cuban embargo, many Americans were left devastated when they could no longer smoke some of their favorite cigars. The Partagas line seemed to leave the biggest gap. When General Cigar began to produce the Dominican version of Partagas, it seemed like an answer to everyone’s prayers, and indeed it was. The original Partagas is a phenomenal medium bodied cigar. I would go as far to say it is the quintessential medium bodied smoke. It is hand rolled using only choice aged Dominican and Mexican long filler tobaccos. The wrapper is a vintage toothy African Cameroon leaf. This cigar is bursting with flavor notes like nuts, cedar, a slight hint of pepper, and earth. It is smooth, yet immensely flavor which is the perfect combination. Try out the cigar that brought Partagas back to the states and light up a Partagas today.
