The No.6 is the latest recruit to the Partagas D Series and joins the iconic D4 Robusto and milder D5 as an altogether shorter and more contemporary smoke. Measuring just 3.5 inches ( 90mm ) but retaining the same 50 ring gauge it provides the perfect "short" smoke for those who crave the fuller, richer flavour of Partagas in a pocket size confection.
On first acquaintance I found the cigar to be a trifle coarse with a bitter taste. But this soon evaporated and the cigar mellowed to develop the familiar taste and flavour profile one would associate with a D Series.
The cigars are presented in an attractive display box containing just 20 sticks. Tins of just 5 cigars are promised by Cuba but don't hold your breathe ! Verdict - an engaging short smoke that will likely become a firm favourite in the course of time.
