Partagas Black Label Piramide
Partagas Black Label cigars are distinguished by their richer tasting, proprietary Connecticut Medio Tiempo wrapper used for this selection. Inside these mostly big gauge cigars is an outstanding, robust blend of Nicaraguan and Piloto Cubano Ligero tobaccos laced in a rich-tasting, Dominican-grown 'La Vega Especial' binder. Seamless construction, creamy-smooth draw, ultra-rich flavor and a sweet aroma make this bold Partagas selection a smart choice. Order your box now.
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.
One of the best strong sticks you'll find. This cigar is mellow with a kick in the last third portion. I call it this sweet spot. I love hitting the sweet spot on the Partagas.
For the price these are a bargin! I love the rich oily wrapper - and the longer you let it age the smoother it is. I love to smoke the ones I have 2 - 3 years after I purchase them on a hot humid day - you get blue smoke from the wrapper!!
