Weighing in at 4 1/2 x 54, this voluptuous, full-flavored cigar from the Partagas Black Label Series offers a black, oily, extra-rich-tasting Connecticut wrapper surrounding a sun-grown La Vega Especial binder and an all-ligero filler. If your prefer espresso to coffee, this is your cigar.

When I first received my box of Partagas Black Label Bravo, I was amazed by the dark black oily wrapper and rich tobacco aroma. I held this beauty between my fingers and thought that this gorgeous cigar could never taste as good as it looks. I placed the box in my humidor at 68% for a month before trying the first. I was not disappointed, this is an excellent smoke with a smooth and slightly sweet oily leather taste. Not complex but has some flavor changes. Im not an aficionado so I cant describe all the flavor changes, I just know its there and I like it. Plenty of smoke and perfect draw. Ive smoked 8 so far and no burn problems. You gotta try one.less

Burn, very substandard. Construction,fair. Aroma, OK. Taste, bland and musty. Handsome appearance. As a smoker of full bodied cigars for over 30 years, the Bravos were disappointing across the board.less

Partagas Black Label Bravos are awesome! I always favored Partagas cigars, so trying this was a must for me. WOW! I have since given these away as single cigar gifts, and the next thing I know, Im ordering these cigars by the box for everyone! But I dont mind at all. You have to share the better things in life with family and friends first. The cigar has a great smell, nice rich smoke, a long beautiful ash and a decent draw. They tend to be rolled tight and have to be lit up a few times, but they are well worth the extra lights. A Black Label Bravo and a black cup of coffee (or espresso if you prefer) to start the day and/or end one and youre in good company with these Partagas cigars. The Black Label Prontos are also a fine small ring cigar. They burn well, draw well and hold a good ash. Cant say enough good things about theses babies. Good smoking to you. less

Now this is an excellent smoke. Certianly not for fans of the mild blends, this smoke packs a punch from first puff to last. But it's a smooth smoke, with no harshness or "sting" you get with some full bodied smokes.The only drawback is the inconsistant burn. On all the Black Labels I've smoked, about half way through it starts to tunnel or burn hotter on one side, needing some extra lighting to keep it burning fairly even.Still, well worth the effort for a cigar of this caliber.less

Bought several Bravo singles over three years ago, and still have one left. It's an awesome fireplug, with great chocolate, coffee, and earthy tones. Not for the beginner, and definitely a much better smoke if you are patient enough to let the tobaccos age at least a couple of years in the humidor, as all my cigars have extensive additional aging. It's an excellent after dinner cigar, with a bold and smooth brandy or cognac, but not a good idea to try one on an empty stomach. Have not had a single draw or burn issue. It's a keeper.less
