Partagas 1845 Gigante 5 Pack
Partagas 1845 cigars represent 167 years in the making. This April, 2012 release marks a unique departure from the brand's traditional Cameroon wrapper. For this 1845 edition, they've created a more complex full-bodied cigar deftly rolled in an opulent Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrapper leaf. Spicy Nicaraguan Seco and Dominican ligero tobaccos provide a robust, earthy and bitter-free base, while a Connecticut Broadleaf binder imparts a subtle trace of sweetness to the smoke.

Bought two of these at a local cigar store at over twice the price while awaiting a Famous resupply. If you prefer a medium body and large ring size, give it a try. Tight roll, great draw, great taste. One started a hair lip half the way down, but a little lighter action resolved the issue. I ve had $20+ cigars do the same thing, so don t consider it a game-breaker. Usually can t finish a cigar to the stub, but no probs with this gem.
Won longest ash the other day @ my B&M and wasn't even trying. This baby was creamy smooth thru & thru. Congrats to Partagas for hitting one over the wall, bases loaded!
What a thoroughly enjoyable smoke! I love a good Habano wrapper, and this one scratched that itch quite well. This one aged in the humidor for only about two months before I had to give it a try. Admittedly, I had to touch it up once, shortly after lighting, but the rest of the smoke burned very evenly and held a very long, very tight white ash. This was a medium bodied smoke, with excellent Habano flavor and outstanding aromatics. I will be buying more of these to stock my humidor.
