You know, Cuban cigars have not usually been known for being dark, and when the companies that fled Cuba and reformed elsewhere began operation again, this explains why there were so very few companies that were making these darker cigars. It wasn’t something common in Cuba, and it didn’t seem to sell well back in the day when many of these companies originally began operations there.
Because of that, it’s good to see a once-Cuban cigar company take that risk. Partagas, indeed, has a long history in Cuba, where it has operated for well over a century and a half. Since the days of Castro, their products have gone down somewhat in quality, but the cigars are still well respected. Sadly, you can’t find Cuban Partagas cigars, but you can find ones made elsewhere in the Americas.
So, is this a good cigar? Well, let me put it this way; if you like extremely dark and full-bodied cigars, you are going to find that these will be the kind of cigar that you will enjoy. If you like more mellow cigars, you’re going to want to go look elsewhere.
This begins with a sun grown Medio Tiempo wrapper, into which is placed the finest premium tobaccos that you will be able to find in the Americas, and the cigar is dark, deep in flavor, and amazing for those who like a nice and full cigar. Trust me, you’ll want to try one of these, and a box of them? Well that’s just gravy on the potatoes.
