Finally tried an Partagas Aristocrat


Recommended Posts

I have been knocking about wanting to try a few of these and while perusing the fare at my local Habanos Atmosphere I saw these and picked up a few. After having some help by the attendant who tried to warn me off by stating there have been rolling deficiencies (plugs), I was presented with several that felt passed the grade and were free of hard spots.

 I took them home and smoked one the next day. I have to say I liked them. Not a super in depth flavor bomb but certainly one to take when you just want a quick smoke and don't need to pay attention to the cigar. No draw issues on the one I did smoke. Smooth, pleasant, with that dominant Partagas spice. Pretty good for a cheap smoke.

I'll probably buy a box to keep around for that quick smoke.

Cracking cigar. I won a FoH review comp with one last year so I'm biased!
I do really like them, had one early yesterday morning in fact. Nice size, same as a du Prince, and I find that they have a similar profile to the Shorts but less sophisticated. There's a sweetness in there that's different - more molasses than caramel.
I've got through a couple of boxes in the last couple of years and have had no real construction issues.
Very reasonable price too.

How would you guys compare this with the Super Partagas and the Partagas Corona Jr/Senior tubos?
