Tasting Note
Partagas has a long history for making rich and wonderful cigars, but the pirámide, more popularly called a torpedo, has never been a mainstay shape for the brand. Most Partagas figurados have been machine made, although we once saw a box of handmade Partagas torpedos from the early 1960s sold in a Christie’s auction in London. However, it wasn’t until late 2000 that the marque made a pirámide commercially available with the launch of the Partagas Edición Limitada Pirámide. It took another five years for it to become a core shape. Made at the Partagas factory in Havana, the smoke has always delivered the benchmark rich, earthy, almost funky character that the facility is known for. The Partagas Serie P No. 2 was our favorite Cuban figurado in 2009. In its hip black-andred tube, it’s a great cigar to have in your pocket for one of those spontaneous moments that call for a big and juicy Habanos.

A leathery-tasting pyramid with underpinnings of wood and fresh tobacco that remain consistent throughout.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Jun 01, 2009 | Score: 91

This torpedo exhibits near-perfect combustion and comes on strong with a spicy, leathery, mineral-laden smoke. Bold, beefy and impressive.
