Tasting Note
Picture-perfect with fine tapers and an alluring wrapper. The foot is packed with tobacco, resulting in a firm draw that eventually opens to show notes of salted caramel, spices and a graham cracker finish.

Picture-perfect with fine tapers and an alluring wrapper. The cigar's firm draw eventually opens to show notes of salted caramel, spices and a graham-cracker finish.

A beautifully rolled figurado whose slightly firm draw leaves coffee and nutty impressions on the palate, a bit of leather and a profoundly milk-chocolate aftertaste.

An intriguing figurado with a firm draw that opens up after the bulbous foot. The smoke is mellow and balanced with nutmeg flavor, a touch of licorice and a fresh tobacco finish.

German cigar merchant Christopher Wolters resurrected this classy, highly artisanal shape from the Partagas factory in 1996, when he asked the fabrica to make him 100 special humidors of 50 cigars, and they took a place among the most sought-after collectible boxes ever made. Twelve years later the big figurado became commercially produced as an exclusive for La Casa del Habano cigar stores. The smoke delivers wonderfully spicy and opulent aromas and flavors, and is ultra-cool with its large girth and substantial length. This is a cigar to take your time with, preferably in a Havana bar with a glass of rum, buoyant salsa and the right company.
