I am a big Partagas fan, but these suck. Poorly made, very hard draw, and flavorless.

I bought the 4 - 5 packs. The draw was so difficult I had to either cut 1 1/2 inches from it or drill it to get a decent draw. One out of five had no issues. The flavor was ok but not like other Partagas cigars I have smoked. The burn was uneven and yielded little smoke. Several were coming unraveled out of the package. There was no consistency in burn, taste, construction, appearance or draw. Save you money and buy a Sancho Panza or Partagas #1. I should have sent them back.

"This is why the name Partagas is legendary!"
Simply put, a great cigar at any price. The burn is second to none with a nice sweet yet spicy finish. A very flavorful smoke that isn't over powering. It is my second favorite Partagas. If you enjoy these you MUST get a box(or two) of the Partagas Black Label series.

A great cigar from the very first draw. Lots of sweetness, hints of cattle/leather, aged tobacco leave, velvety, slight chocolate, smooth and mild! Great aroma and white ash. This is a really dark cigar. It look powerful but its actual medium bodied. Took me about 80 minutes to finish this cigar. I give this cigar a 9 out of 10 overall rating!

first couple of boxes were pretty good-then I started getting some sticks with a very hard draw-my jaw started to ache!I'm going to try another box to see if they've improved-if not-no more!

I have smoked these for years. The first box I had, I put them in my humidor and let them age till they had the light gray powder on them...best cigars I ever had. Since then, things have slipped on their end and a box will be split between cigars packed so hard you can't draw through them and ones that are so loose that they almost droop in your fingers.
Too bad. Get some consistency and they would be rated much higher!!

"Wonderful Taste & Aroma"
Talk about consistency! I have purchased three boxes already and have not found one clinker! This cigar has it all in favor, draw, appearance and especially taste. The aroma brings compliments from all my friends and co-workers. Great smoke with coffee, red wine or your favorite spirits. One of the finest cigars I ever experienced.
