Once lit, the 160 Robusto Minor burns evenly like a champ. There is zero need for re-lighting or touch-ups. The draw is excellent and a light-colored solid ash is formed.

The flavors experienced while smoking are not bad and on the smoother side. I notice some nutty flavor at the start, as well as some sweetness. A lot of cream comes into the mix and wood makes an appearance too. One other flavor that was noticeable is a subtle vanilla flavor that blended in nicely. The 160 Robusto Minor is definitely a mild selection.

As you would hope to expect from a premium cigar, the Partagas 160 Robusto Minor is a quality smoke. The burn is nearly impeccable. The flavors are varied as well. So, what's the problem? Well, the price is the problem, or at least it will be for some. At around $18 for a single, this is one cigar that will be out of many smokers' price range. It may be worth the shot for a special occasion, but other than that, the cigar seems to be overpriced. It just does not have a wow factor to it to justify buying it on a frequent basis. That said, if purchased, it should appeal to fans of mild cigars or those getting their feet wet in the hobby.

The high price of the Partagas 160 Robusto Minor knocks its otherwise great rating down a notch to three out of four stars.

I hope these two reviews were enjoyable. That is all for now but make sure to come back for more!
