Partagas Black Label Reviews
I like this smoke, the larger ring size helps with the flavor. I needed a bit of maintenance as far as the burn. I reccommend this as a good daily smoke for the price.
Disappointing effort from a usually outstanding line of cigars. A powerful cigar that was extremely one-dimensional. A nice draw considering the burn was less than perfect. Only tried one that had at least six months in my humidor. Who knows...just might of been an isolated clunker. Will give it another try considering the Partagas reputation.
Still disappointing. I keep coming back to these every other year and remain disappointed in the draw and taste. I am switching to the 1845 Oscura which have been far more satisfying
I have been on a mission to find the best Cigar. I have tried so many of the high end cigars on the market. This cigar is by far my favorite! I love the oilyness and favors.
This cigar is one I keep coming back to. The appearance, taste, and construction are excellent. The burn and especially the draw, however, are poor. Canoeing is a problem and requires constant touching up. The draw is very very tight - almost to the point of un-smokeable. Running a poker through the cigar helps loosen up the draw, but often leads to splitting the wrapper and worsens the canoeing problem.
This is one of the most flavorful cigar I ve ever smoked. I always buy these as it is a consistent quality
My hands down all-time favorite cigar. Consistent burn, smooth and flavorful are the reasons that I prefer the Partagas Black over all others.
I have tried many maduro handmade cigars that were weak and poorly constructed until I found the Partagas Black Label. I have been enjoying the Partagas Black Label Magnifico for years. When I read the negative reviews spouting poor draw, short ash, one note flavor , and cigars that go out ; I question what they were smoking before they finally tried a Partagas. I love the full flavor and I really enjoy the length of time I have to enjoy this cigar due to its long burn. You need to try these cigars. You will not be sorry!
the burn consistency draw appearance taste! and construction the best out there in a full bodied cigar . if you think they are as good as i do try the partagas prontos. same cigar but a smaller version in a 6 pack tin.
This is a very great smoke. I'm not usually a big fan of larger ring gauges, but this is my most prominent exception. Its oscuro wrapper has some very great flavors to offer. Try some; they won't disappoint.
I am a big Black Label fan. I am also a large (sized) cigar fan. However, this sized Black Label just seems to be missing something from its smaller counterparts. I find the 60 ring gauged Blacks like this to be alittle tighter rolled than the 50 or 52's. The results, for me, is less smoke, and alittle too lean of a flavor. It's an hour and a half to two hour smoke, but it doesnt really open up until about the last 30 minutes. It still has the high nicotine-wobbly leg-not for the faint finish, but all other size BL's have a more creamy, robust flavor to me (except the tinned minis, those have no flavor to me). I'm going to let the rest of my 5 pack rest for another 6 months or a year and revisit this size. It still looks great, burns even, if slow, and smells great, but its just missing a certain something...
I have basically been a daily cigar smoker for about the last 35 years. This cigar was once a staple in my humidor. It was my go-to smoke about five years ago, but the quality of the roll began to fall off around 2009. It became too tight of a draw and the burn was consitantly uneven. Each stick became difficult to complete without relighting and an occasional stem would protrude through the wrapper. I put them down until trying another in 2011 and another in 2012. It was just more of the same. What a shame because this was once one of the finest cigars available at this price point. I sincerely hope that these cigars will once again be in my humidor.
