The storied Partagas brand has been around since
1845, yet in all those years there has never been a smoke quite like the
Partagas Black Label. The thick, hearty smoke is a black wrapped jewel that
will make even the sturdiest of enthusiasts drool with anticipation. The Black
Label Gigante is a beast that deserves your complete, undivided attention.
As the name implies the Gigante is a massive 6” x
60 cigar that just drips with oily goodness. The special Sun Grown Connecticut Medio
Tiempo wrapper hides a unique La Vega Especial binder that is absolutely
stuffed with a blend of Nicaraguan Ligero and Dominican Piloto Cubano Ligero
filler tobaccos. A beautifully easy draw and burn will emit pure white ash and
pleasure for well beyond the hour mark.
The Black Label Gigante shells out a ton of flavor
right from the start that includes notes of pepper, dark chocolate and thick
espresso. Some cream and sweetness massage the palate on the way to a grandiose
finish. The Black Label’s character is purely full-bodied and will be best
enjoyed after a hearty feast.
The Partagas Black Label Gigante is a magnificent
smoke for anyone who desires bold flavor and body while maintaining a smooth
character. Delicious to the last, the Black Label is a must for any Maduro
