Not only it looks good, but the Partagas Coronas also smokes excellent, I must say. I heard this one is often called a Cuban classic – well, it’s quite easy to understand why.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
As I have already said, the stick does look good. Partagas Coronas is simply gorgeous.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★☆
It has a beautiful silky Colorado Maduro wrapper, a moderately generous and consistent draw. Good overall construction.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★½
Like all Partagas models, it packs quite a punch, and is dominated by earthy/peaty notes. Develops considerable complexity with time in the humidor. Last 1/3 is rich and surprisingly powerful for this size.

Value : Rating: ★★★★★
As usual, what’s good with Partagas is the price :) It’s hard to find a real high quality Cuban cigar for $10 (I got one for 6€ in France).

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★★½
Overall, a very good experience. Partagas Coronas has what is takes to be a quality cigar – a fine draw and rich classic flavors.

    A year ago I got a box of these that had four years of age on them. They really didn’t last very long. I think we smoked them all in 3 months.

    You’re a real chain smoker, aren’t you? :)

    Two of us had split a box and shared my half with a few friends. I’d bought the box in 2006 and the cigars were from 2002. :)

  4. I’m enjoying one right now. I picked it up in Jerusalem last month for close to $15 (incl VAT). My only regret is that I didn’t get more.
