Spanish Rosado Ramon Y Ramon

Partagas Spanish Rosado Ramon Y Ramon Cigar

Score: 9.5

Kudos to Daneil Nuñez and the other people behind the making of this marvelous cigar. Everything about this cigar was right on the money.

The smoke was consistent from start to finish with a very full in flavor and body yet never turned bitter or overpoweringly strong. The aroma was also sensational, a big feature for me. Now, this blend is also more of an Honduran than the typical Dominican Partagas we’ve all come to know and love, which is probably another reason I was so seduced by this cigar. The wrapper has a beautiful glow to it and an inviting dark reddish color. it burned almost perfectly with a solid, silvery white ash. UI say “almost,” because this San Augustin wrapper is a little thicker than usual and it  did tend to angle, but it righted itself simply by rotating the cigar.

The smoke is thick and creamy and every puff was teeming with complex, earthy-spice flavors that left a long finish on my tongue and tickled my nose. I could find practically no flaws in this cigar and I didn’t want it to end. In fact I was so surpirsed by this cigar I had to smoke another one just to make sure and the second was equally as enjoyable. Based on my experience, I would put this cigar in my top ten. I’m giving this one a 95.
