Partagas is a name that has a long history in cigars. There’s a Partagas that has been in operation for over a hundred and fifty years in Havana, Cuba. Not only that; after the communist takeover of Cuba, the fine folks at the Cuban Partagas were so well respected that the Cuban government continued to allow them to make their cigars and to sell them to the world. Sadly, we here in the United States rarely get to enjoy Cuban Partagas cigars, thanks to the embargo. The best way for you to get some is to get into a plane and travel down to Cuba, then bring as many as you can carry back with you.
Luckily, there’s a Partagas operating out of the Dominican Republic, and they make the same quality cigars, attempting to mimic the flavor of the Partagas cigars of Havana. If you’re looking for a great cigar to enjoy, a Partagas is almost always a good choice, and their Black line is delicious and dark, just the way all my favorite cigars are.
This Partagas Black Bravo is their Robusto sized cigar, and it is fantastic. It starts with a Medio Tiempo Sun Grown wrapper, into which is placed the best tobaccos that can be find in the Americas, making a cigar that is full-flavored to say the least. With deep and earthy tones, and an oily wrapper, this is the kind of cigar that you can smoke while blowing voluminous clouds of smoke, and one that you owe it to yourself to try.
