A LEGENDARY CIGAR FROM A LEGENDARY BRAND
I’ve always had a soft spot for Partagas. It was the first premium cigar I ever smoked. Back in the early 1980’s, I used to steal a Partagas 8-9-8 (Does anyone remember these?) out of my father’s humidor occasionally. At .85 cents a pop, I couldn’t afford these, plus it was hard to buy a cigar when you were only 14 years old!
Anyway, this is a masterfully configured blend developed in tribute to the long history of the brand and the legends who made them, men such as Ramon Cifuentes and Benji Menendez to name a few.
Presented in box-pressed form, Partagas Legend consists of deeply aged Dominican Piloto Cubano filler and Honduran San Agustin binder. The cigar is finished in a beautiful, lustrous Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
The result is a layered, nuanced smoke with pleasant notes of cocoa and earth. The construction is flawless, and the burning qualities are exceptional.
Ramon Cifuentes and Benji Menendez would be very proud.
