Length: 7 5/8" Ring Gauge: 49
Produced exclusively for the "Friends of Partagas " mini cigar festival in November 2014. This cigar is quintessentially an old-style Double Corona with its own unique and distinctive band.
This is a cigar not to be rushed but savored the entire length of its 7.58 inches because on first acquaintamce it does not scream the word "Partagas" with either its flavour or aroma. It has a very subtle character - entirely appropriate for a cigar of this size. It evolves and develops slowly weaving a spell all its very own. Fortunately its combustion is faultless and as one approaches the final third it gains in intensity and flavour.
Verdict - In the course of time this could develop into a really good cigar. It's early days yet but it may well become a real classic akin to the old -style Lusitanias
