Review Notes: Just a follow-up review of the box I bought a few years ago (dated 2005). This smoke has mellowed out some, but has retained a lot of its characteristic salted peanut flavor - just more refined. It's smooth and rich; I'm very glad I bought the box - I should have bought a cab!

Review Notes: After trying one of these a few weeks ago, I liked it so much I bought a box. I smoked the first one from that box last night. It was good, but not quite the same as the first one I tried. This one had a slight hint of grassiness behind flavors of nuts and tobacco. My guess is this box needs some age. The box code is KBE NOV 2005, so they're pretty young. Iíll post an update after trying a few more in the coming months.

"Awesome! Big Habano flavor in a small stick"

Review Notes: I wish all cigars tasted this good! After trying a grassy, metallic Mille Fleurs and a mediocre SD#4, I didnít think Iíd like a Partagas, but I found this one to be great. It was very rich and spicy, especially for such a pint-sized cigar. It started out with classic Cuban tobacco flavors with tea and a slight cardboard edge to it. It then moved to a more refined tobacco-box flavor and toast. By the mid-point, it had some noticeable white pepper flavors and dough-like notes. At 2/3rds through, the flavor really smoothed out. It never became mellow, just smooth and flavorful. By then end, tea flavors became evident again and stayed until I burnt my fingertips trying to squeeze out one last puff. The draw was good on this stick; just a little loose. Like a lot of Cubans I've had lately, it was a somewhat soft, which caused it to burn with a blister, but it never caused any major problems. All in all, a tremendous smoke. I'll be buying a box of these in the near future.
