I personally love most of the Partagas line. The earthy funky character these cigars are known by is a love of mine and when I saw this contest, this was the first cigar that came to mind. I have been able to acquire these for about $4.00 a piece and I smoke a little slow so these usually last me about an hour, which in my eyes makes this a perfect candidate to review. I like to age these a little as they mellow out in the last third but these usually don't last too long and i smoke my boxes quite fast. However I held onto this one for about 7 months and was nicely rewarded. I tend to purchase these quite a bit as most I have had have few, if any draw issues. I only had one of these with a tight draw out of my last box and it was workable, nothing to complain too much about. As a matter of fact my only real complaints with these are I wish the smoking time was longer and I have had a few that just would not let the bands come off. I personally take every band off my cigar before I cut and light it but this one was different. I even waited until the burn almost hit the band hoping the glue would loosen with the heat and I still struggled with getting it off. With that said, enough of my rambling and on with the review.

I was sold a box of 25 of these cigars here in Malta which only cost me €42.00.

Now you get what you pay for and I usually smoke Partagas, R & J, Ramon Allones and other quality cigars.

I considered this cigar to be weak in earthy and tobacco tastes and with sugary herbaceous flavours. The cigar burned quickly and with lots of smoke.

Would I purchase this cigar again? The answer is an emphatic NO, well only if it were given to me free. Otherwise I shall stick with quality cigars in future.

While I was in Geneva this spring, I thought I’d take advantage of this special opportunity to try the Por Larranaga Valiosos Regional Edition Switzerland. The cigar cost me $22.00. I thought that it would be well worth it to try this cigar out for everyone who can’t take advantage of this release. The Valiosos was produced as a limited edition regional cigar; only 2400 boxes were distributed for sale in Switzerland.

I have tried the smaller Secretos version of the Maduro 5 previously, but not its big brother, the Genios until now. Most of the reviews I've read on the Genios have been positive, so I was hoping to have the same luck, though I wasn't terribly impressed with Secretos. I enjoyed this with a nicely aged cabernet sauvignon, which paired pretty well.

Today, Ray_I reviews a cheap machine-made Cuban, Romeo y Julieta Sport Largos. Enjoy!

My BOTL, you know how it is, the seductive siren song of the Cuban cigar. How many times have you had friends over and there is that one guy… that guy who doesn’t smoke much but “just has to try a Cuban”, the guy who wears you out till relenting you part with one of your favorite sticks only to see him smoke only half of it… a travesty… that is the journey that led me to the Romeo y Julieta Sport Largos at as low as $60 for a box of twenty five; I thought, what the heck, maybe this is how I can smoke a Cuban cigar everyday.

The Partagas D4 comes with a simple label and a wrapper full of veins. The wrapper is a light tan color with some noticeable bloom and plume. And the construction is perfect. It’s a pretty good looking cigar and I like the “non traditional” label it comes with.

Smelling the wrapper is amazing and it was one of the highlights of this cigar. There’s a strong sweet tobacco aroma with a little cedar smell behind it. It was strong and in your face and I just sat there awhile smelling the wrapper because it was that good. It’s not too often that you can just sit there and enjoy the aroma of only the wrapper.

Partagas Salomones is a cigar that you don't see very often in your shop. Online or offline, they are only available at several retailers for a simple reason - they were made specifically for La Casa del Habanos outlets. If you are interested in the history of this cigar, you might want to read this article - this is pretty fascinating. Thanks to a good friend of mine, I was able to put my hand on a sample so, without further ado, here is my opinion on this smoke.
