Partagas has long been a brand known for consistency
in flavor and construction, and the Partagas 1845 Gigante is no exception.
Smooth, tasty and like no other Partagas, the 1845 was developed by the
legendary cigar guru Benji Menendez and is a must-smoke for all aficionados
looking for a quality medium-bodied cigar.
What makes the Partagas 1845 so unique is the
aging process of the Ligero and Seco filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the
Dominican Republic. The luscious leaves are aged in Dominican Rum barrels
before being tucked into a subtly sweet Connecticut Habano binder and
Ecuadorian Habano Viso wrapper. The resulting flavor profile of the 6” x60
Gigante is magnificently supple and complex.
The Partagas 1845 Gigante begins with cocoa, cedar
and earth flavors that are followed swiftly by coffee and spice notes that run
through the entirety of the nearly hour and half smoke. A creamy undertone
floats along the middle-of-the-road cigar until a composed, but richly
satisfying finish bathes the palate in a flurry of smoking bliss.
Partagas cigars are always a good decision and the
1845 might just be the most versatile smoke of the lot. Flavorful enough for
true connoisseurs and smooth enough for the casual enthusiasts, the 1845
Gigante will prove an all-star delight for one and all.
