REVIEW | Partagas Culebra

Tasting Note: Despite the bends and crooks, the attractive wrapper remains intact and the culebra burns well, but draws loosely. It’s a toasty cigar with some leather notes. The finish is oily and a bit charry.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Oct 01, 2007
Score: 89
An intentionally crooked cigar with a fine draw. The rich tobacco core and flavors of cedar, orange peel and cocoa are not terribly refined but agreable.

This roughish culebra burns well despite its twisted form. The smoke is leathery and slightly chocolatey, with some earthy flavors.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Nov 01, 2002
Score: 87
A rough, coiled cigar. It lights and draws well, despite its shape, yet burns slightly off. It's rough and woody, with earthy notes. Mild to medium bodied.

Score: 87
An unusual cigar in the marketplace, the three-cigar braid. It has a sweet woody character and decent construction. It's just odd-looking.
