I just received a box of these last week from CubanLou's. There are 3 cigars packaged in 3 individual coffins. An unique presentation. Not being able to control myself, I liberated 1 from the coffin, and after some untying and twisting, freed the cigar, clipped it and it lit perfectly. Even though the cigar was twisted about, it had a great draw, and a very full flavor. What you would expect from a Partagas. Even on the cold draw I knew this was going to be a treat as the tingle on the lips was there.
A great cigar, a great presenatation, the only draw back is a bit expensive but you are paying for a unique experience.
I was able to partake in a Partagas Culebras cigar at a herf with a friend who purchased a box. I have to say I was a bit worried about how the cigar would burn with it's twisted styling. I was pleasantly surprised at how even it did burn. The flavor was outstanding. Overall, I would say that I loved this cigar and look forward to smoking many more.
First off I absolutely LOVE Partagas cigars, they have to be my overall favorite line for consistency & the price. That being said I found this to be another example of a great Party. The presentation of this latest encarnation from LCDH is 9 cigars to a box, wrapped 3 each in 3 cedar coffins. I have to say, that the presentaion on these was unique but magnificent. Even though once you get them unwrapped they look uglier than a mud fence, they smoke great. Amazing! These are great fresh and burn even & with a dark hard ash. Classic med/full flavor & with all that Partagas spice you expect. My only negative would be what I feel is the rediculously high price. Though the tabacco is high quality, I suppose you're paying for the novelty.
