Partagas 1845 Toro

This cigar has a very smooth dark wrapper and a firm box press. The burn is perfect as is the cold draw. This afternoon’s beverage is a cold Topo Chico.

 

The cigar begins very mild with basic tobacco and cedar notes. There is a very light pepper note in the retrohale. The burn is very even.

In the first third the draw has opened up and the cigar is burning a bit warm. The flavor profile has taken on a sharpness. The burn has started to canoe.

During the second third the burn remains an issue, even after two touch ups, but starts evening out the slower I smoke. The flavors remain consistent and the smoke is very smooth. The cigar has developed into a much more medium body. The retrohale is very smooth.

Approaching the final inch the canoeing starts again. Probably a fluke with the cigar resulting from imperfections in the bunch. The flavors remain consistent with a nice complexity, but the burn problem detracts from the overall enjoyment of the cigar. 85
