  1. Greetings again dear friends! Below are a number of video reviews of cigars which I've termed 'uncommon' due to their discontinuation (or hiatus), premium exclusivity or simply for the fact that as cigar enthusiasts we're more unlikely to reach for them from our humidors! Again, like the 2017 Xmas Sampler Series, I'd like to say that speaking 'on-the-fly' about cigars is certainly a challenge and I will need to acknowledge errors throughout this series (so bare with me). Also, please feel free to share your thoughts on these cigars in this thread. If you have views or opinions contrary to what has been stated, please feel welcome to express your thoughts and say so, after all, my own views here is intended to serve as a guide.
  2. Cigar: Partagas Lusitanias Box Code: ECA JUL 02 Format: Prominente (double corona) Size: 194mm (7.6 inches) x 49 Smoke Date: 09/11/2016 (Read the Full Review) I reviewed this magnificent cigar a while ago. I don't often smoke cigars this big because it takes so long and I like to really concentrate on my cigar experience when I smoke a great cigar. The cigar started off mild, with some sweet pepper and cedar, while the aroma was notably light as was the smoke volume. But it didn't take long for the character of the cigar to develop into rich toasted tobacco, with a big dose of earth and creamy smoothness. As the second third started to burn the distinct Cuban twang I so covet came out in spades, a beautiful rich aroma of loamy earth with that intoxicating barnyard tone that I find elusive in modern Cuban cigars. The flavor also exhibited flowery and sweet spice undertones heightening the creamy sensation, a hallmark of Cuban tobacco of this pedigree. In the final third the cigar spice intensified and a hint of black pepper emerged in the finish. The flavor was wonderfully complex with essence of sweet pepper, cumin, basil and rich earth dominating the forefront, while nuances of cookie dough, vanilla, and smoldering sweet wood adding to the masterful creamy balance. This cigar brought smoothness and cream like no other, confirming the Lusitanias as the standing flagship of the Partagas marquee. This cigar is a classic example of the best Cuba has to offer. I rated it 9.5 out of 10 on my personal scale.
