Review Notes: Dark rosado wrapper, brown with reddish highlights had a rustic appearance, thick and leathery with pronounced texture and small tears and wrinkles. The band was cream colored with brown and gold print, large and gaudy. A rounded cap crowned the traditional Partagas roll. Pre light taste was unusual, I swear it tasted mildly of turkey gravy! The cigar lit easily but had a reluctant draw. The flavor was rough, harsh, and tasted young. The ash was light gray and clad in thin wrapper flakes. A flat tasting core with interesting overlays but overall it was in a word boring. The aroma that it presented was slightly chemical smelling with sweet notes. Overall the novelty of the Rosado wrapper could not carry the team. The overall experience was lacking, perhaps due somewhat to youth. There are better values out there, but Iíll give it another try in a year or two. Not recommended.
