Partagas 1845 Gigante
6 x 60 - Natural - Box of 20
Partagas 1845 cigars represent 167 years in the making. This April, 2012 release marks a unique departure from the brand's traditional Cameroon wrapper. For this 1845 edition, they've created a more complex full-bodied cigar deftly rolled in an opulent Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrapper leaf. Spicy Nicaraguan Seco and Dominican ligero tobaccos provide a robust, earthy and bitter-free base, while a Connecticut Broadleaf binder imparts a subtle trace of sweetness to the smoke.

What a thoroughly enjoyable smoke! I love a good Habano wrapper, and this one scratched that itch quite well. This one aged in the humidor for only about two months before I had to give it a try. Admittedly, I had to touch it up once, shortly after lighting, but the rest of the smoke burned very evenly and held a very long, very tight white ash. This was a medium bodied smoke, with excellent Habano flavor and outstanding aromatics. I will be buying more of these to stock my humidor.
Big and bold. Once I figured out how the box opened I found an excellent looking cigar. The appearance was excellent and the draw and flavour was consistant all the way through. This full bodied cigar had a nice tone throughout and the ash was wicked.
