Quick Smoke: Partagas Dunhill Selección (Cuban)

5 Dec 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

This vintage petit corona dating back to the late ’40s or early ’50s was generously given to me by Jeff Borysiewicz, owner of the Corona Cigar Company, who has an impressive collection of pre-embargo Cubans for sale in his downtown Orlando shop. Considering the seven decades of age on this Partagas made for Dunhill, the construction was impressive. The years had certainly mellowed the smoke, but the cream, paper, and mild cedar notes made for an enjoyable experience.

Verdict =Buy.

    Crazy to think that a 70 year old cigar still smokes well. How much does Corona Cigar charge for these?

    I believe the cheapest pre embargo Cuban sells for around 600 dollars when I asked one of the folks from Corona Cigars on the phone.

    lol, Your "buy" assessment is not based on a $600 price…. I assume.

    Interesting to know of 70 year olds. Thanks

    I need to find a cigar store that gives me $600+ cigars. You are a lucky fellow Patrick.
