Partagas Shorts vs Mille Fleurs


Recommended Posts

Would like to hear some opinions on the above. Came across a box of Mille Fleurs TOU Dec 17. Never tried a P Short. Flavors? Strength? 

The Mille Fleurs I have taste ok. Nothing spectacular. A bit of a “mongrel” in the last half. Good for a 40-45 minute smoke.

If I had the choice to pick either Party Short or Mille Fleurs, I would be disappointed with myself for even debating it.

Party Short.  Every day, all day.

I agree 100%

  A kick up in richness, depth of flavour, a deep thick butterscotch core.

  A top level premium cigar in a small package. 

  Nothing wrong with the MF, but they are just aiming lower and more rustic.

  Both great and both have their own time/place

  

Rustic would describe the MF PERFECTLY!

I'm a big fan of Partagas.  Second Cap Quintero's comments - IMHO the Shorts will blow you away.  And they're so short, you'll finish the stick and want to light another immediately.  Just an explosion of intense flavors.  Also a shorter smoke than the MF, for me.

how many years before the Mille Fleur start improving?

They are absolutely ok. Nothing I would want to trade. My box is from Dic 17. Will try the shorts soon. Just a plain simple smoke. Typical Cuban profile, with a dash of “rustic” in there as @CaptainQuintero said, I would not say harsh. As far as aging more,  I probably will go through them over the summer. It’s just a quick morning smoke with coffee or a quickie in the afternoon.

  It depends what you are aiming for I guess. They're not going to turn info Lusitanias no matter how long they sit.

  You'll probably see them soften out and become a tad sweeter/creamier from 5+ years if the other Mille Fleur/Brevas style Cubans are anything to go by
