Quick Smoke: Partagas Black Clasico

5 Mar 2017

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.”

partagas-black - 1

Partagas Black is one of those cigars I used to smoke frequently but don’t anymore. I’m not certain why. When it comes to unique flavors, there’s little else on the crowded cigar market that tastes like this blend (and I mean that as a compliment). The Clasico is a large robusto format (5.25 x 54). The dark, oily, jet-black wrapper hints at the raisin, licorice, and barbecue burnt-end flavors that follow. Full-bodied, flavorful, and unique, my only complaint is the serious burn issues (probably due to the notably oily wrapper) that necessitate multiple relights.

Verdict = Hold.

    Magnifico 6×54 never gave me any burn problems and they still taste great after all these years. I described them similarly, like a sweet steak straight from the grill.

    Never been a huge fan of the Partagas Black line, although I love the regular and enjoy some of the other offshoots.
