gersonmorelli Posted April 28, 2010 Share Posted April 28, 2010 Last year I got a 10 count box of Partagas SD4 (PUB NOV 08) as a birthday gift from a good friend. I have loved smoking young D4s from early 2000s as I felt it brought the personality of Partagas more than any cigar (until I tried Connie 2). However after trying a couple of the cigars from this particular box sometime around May and August last year, I found they were unnaproachable. Bitter, tannic, muted flavours... Tonight I decided to give these guys another go. Even though the first one I tried had to be tossed since it was unsmokably plugged, most of the bitterness was gone. The cigar showed that white and black pepper through the nose character as well as some leathery/almonds notes (very Partagas Shorts-like). However it was one-dimensional throughout the entire experience. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the cigar, I would rate it 88... Now I know it is a young cigar and I should let it sit for another 3 or 4 years. But what are your thoughts on 08 PSD4s? Is it my palate that developed into something more demanding in terms of flavour or the cigar that became a shadow of what it is supposed to be (a premium Partagas)?
