  • Partagas connoisseur no 3

    Hi all

    A 2001 stick which I was eager to try as I love the partagas flavour. Stick was in great shape, a mellow partagas aroma and lit easily with a perfect draw. The first third was exceptional - a really smooth but strong partagas flavour, no harshness or roughness - very creamy. I sat there thinking wow, going to have to get more of these. Even burn, no draw issues.

    However, I got to the half way point and the flavours died off very quickly - not an unpleasant change but it became a very muted taste and aroma with none of the partagas tones to it. Bland is probably too strong a word - it just became a very mild smoke with little flavour. Unfortunately, it didn't recover and I finished it mid wY through the final third.

    Given how good the first half was I'd take a punt on another at some point - not sure if this is a characteristic of aged sticks?

    I think/hope you were just unlucky. I've 2001 and 2006 PSdC 3s and 98 Charlottes and 'touch wood' they're all smoking exactly as they should.
    If you want to, you can.
    And, if you can, you must!
