By Howard D. on 02 July 2008 (Partagas Super Partagas) :
When I inspected this cigar, I could see the dark ligero taking up half the blend at the foot, so I knew it would be tasty. The wrapper is an even medium brown and the feel is just slightly spongy, despite being box pressed. I picked up some cedar and hay/straw flavors and also a noticable fruitness of cherry or plum. I think this was the ligero in the blend. This cigar had a medium-full taste to start, but got fuller during the smoke. Flavors of cedar and white pepper were prominent the entire time. Toward the end, the white pepper changed to a more robust black pepper taste. The cigar is only 11 months old, and should mature into a more complex smoke after a few years of aging. A good, short Partagas.
