Softly pressed with an oily colorado wrapper, this pyramid is bready and oaky, balanced by sweet notes of vanilla, marzipan and a touch of earthy coffee.

Woody and oaky, this pyramid takes on some complex leather and chocolate notes which culminate in a sweet and savory finish.

A dark torpedo with a notably uneven burn, but full of coffee bean and earth flavors balanced by touches of caramel and licorice. Medium to full bodied.

An oily torpedo that is a bit rough at the tip. A creamy, nutty smoke with pleasant touches of leather throughout and a toasty finish. Medium bodied and balanced.

An attractive torpedo with a good draw and burn. It shows an abundance of toasty, spicy flavors and a woody, creamy note. The finish is cedary.

A good looking pyramid with a firm but good draw. It's woody and peppery, with a solid core of tobacco flavor and a pleasant finish.

That old adage of things getting better with age is perfectly suited to Cuba's Partagás Serie P No. 2. The cigar, originally called the Partagás Pirámide, was released in 2000, scoring in the high 80s in our publications. The popular smoke was made part of the regular Cuban cigar portfolio, and was renamed the Serie P No. 2, again scoring in the upper 80s. In recent years, however, these cigars have gone from good to great. Versions in 2006 scored 90 points, the scores crept up to 91 points by 2009, and last year the cigar scored even higher. In this tasting, it scored a near classic 94 points.The cigar shares the same dimensions as all of Cuba's pirámides, and the Partagás Serie P No. 2 is currently smoking better than all of them, even the legendary Montecristo No. 2. Brimming with black pepper, coffee bean, leather and sweet cappuccino notes, the cigars are powerful and complex, loaded with bold Cuban flavors. This Partagás smoke shows true evolution: it has been transformed into something incredible, a perfect example of the level of top-quality smokes that are being made in Cuba today.
