Pricing seems to be

Super<PCE<de Luxe

Any strong opinions on any of these?

And in a similar size (PCE actually larger), why are the Capitols roughly double the price of these 3?

seems like the PCE I have smoked were very good, and I smoke the Supers a lot.

They are  usually decent ,  less complex though.

I've only tried the PCEs, many boxes and everyone was enjoyable.  Not tried others.

Same here, been tempted to try aristos or habaneros but still have PCEs on hand

I ordered a box of Super Partagas, it just came down to it being the size I prefer the most of the three I mentioned. I'll report back in a few months :)

I smoked a Super after about 2 weeks of resting, a 21 box I believe (not feeling motivated to go upstairs right now) and I was floored by how integrated and enjoyable it was. I know these were a lot cheaper a few years ago but I was really happy for $6/stick, I don't think I could come close in an NC for that price.

It had a tiny bit of a bitter cardamom/coriander edge but I'm hoping that smooths out with some time.

De Luxe are absolute garbage. Never has a cigar been less aptly named. Duty free trash. Same with Coronas Senior & Junior. Barf. 

The PCE has typically been regarded as the best of the small Partagas by a notch over the long term and seems to have the lowest production. I would put the Mille Fleurs, Aristocrats, Habaneros and Super Partagas on about the same level although any of them could have the advantage batch to batch.

The Capitols are a huge step up in quality from the small offerings. It's a real Partagas PC that can compete with the Shorts. Unfortunately the price is awful. I wanted to just get a couple singles in Cuba but they would only sell them in the 5 tins so I passed. Didn't want 5 at that price.
