Partagas cigars have an impressive lineage. Before the company was nationalized in Cuba, it had been in operation for well over a century, making some of the finest cigars to hit the market, and the truth is that they were likely to be able to keep doing so had the whole revolution never occurred.
When Castro took command of Cuba, the current owner fled, and set up shop in the Americas outside of Cuba. There they would begin anew the work of making some of the best cigars that you will ever enjoy, again laying claim to being the richest cigars in the world.
Unlike most old Cuban brands, Partagas as it exists outside of Cuba began the work of finding a more dark tobacco to work with, moving away from mellow cigars, and the Partagas Black vitolas are a great example of this. This cigar is deep in flavor and full in body; if you’re the kind of person who normally smokes two or three mellow cigars in a sitting, you will find that just one of these might help to make you feel like you’ve had enough.
To begin with, this cigar starts with a Medio Tiempo Sun Grown wrapper, into which are placed delicious tobaccos from the Americas, making a cigar that is dark, full, and flavorful. If you’re a fan of the darker cigars, this should be a must-smoke for you.
