Partagas Lusitania


You don’t truly know how great a large Cuban cigar can be until you have smoked a Partagas Lusitania at its best. Long a mainstay of Cuban cigar aficionados who know a good smoke when they see one (they are the favorite of Mexico’s Max Gutmann, one of the most experienced cigar aficionados in the world), recent-production releases of Lusitanias are balanced and harmonious smokes with rich and complex flavors of nuts and orange peel. When you have the time that such a double corona demands, perhaps in front of a crackling fire with a glass of single-malt Scotch or a well-aged Cognac or Port, this is your cigar to enjoy, savor and reflect upon.
