Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series LX

Today’s cigar reviews are getting kicked off by the Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series LX.  This particular LX size was added to the original line as a way to celebrate Benji Menendez’ 60 years in the cigar business.  The cigar began shipping towards the end of 2012, and has all of the highly-rated original’s ingredients, except in different proportions.  As for the name, LX represents 60 in Roman numerals, which makes perfect sense in this case.  This is supposedly a limited edition release, so I feel lucky to have my hands on one for this review.  Now let’s get to it.

The Partagas Master Series LX comes in a Toro format that measures 6 x 54.  The cigar begins with a filler of Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan tobacco that comes from the nation’s Ometepe region.  The binder is Connecticut Havana Seed, and a Cameroon wrapper is the final piece of the puzzle.  In terms of strength, the Partagas Master Series LX is said to be smooth and is categorized as being medium-bodied.

Moving on to the appearance department, I get a solid first impression from the Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series LX.  The wrapper is dark and oily.  I see a few veins here and there, but nothing major beyond that.  The cigar has a bit of a rustic appearance, and its size is nice and full.  There are no soft spots.  The presentation is enhanced by a pair of bands near the head.  The top band is a typical looking Partagas band in red and gold that shows the company name and logo.  The band right beneath it is black, gold, red, and white and showcases some nice graphics and the Benji Menendez name.  The combination of the bands give off a sophisticated and bold aura.  Just before lighting I pick up a spicy aroma, while the cold taste is milder and sweet.

The solid first impression given off by the Master Series LX continues with a satisfactory burn.  The draw is a tad firm initially, but it eases up soon enough.  The white ash is solid in nature.  No touch-ups are needed at all, and neither are re-lights.  All in all, we are good to go here.

Fantastic to be looked on it. I have some awesome experience to smoke but sometimes when my dad knows it looks dangerous.
