    Partagas ? Serie du Connaisseur No 3
    Size: 143mm x 35 ? Carlota
    Smoke time: 68mins

    Cigar box date: MAR 03/EMS 2006

    Appearance: Firstly, I have to say that this cigar just oozed cool. Elegant and perfectly proportioned with a silky, deep brown, unbanded, oily wrapper ? with the beginnings of crystalisation ? and compact firmnesss that was a delight to roll between my fingers and a fine testament to humidor keeping. The pre-smoke aroma was tantalisingly sweet and floral.

    Construction: Firm, firm, firm. The pre-draw was beautifully resistive and just stayed that way for the entire smoke. The burn was rock-solid straight and the dark grey ash (darkest I?ve ever seen on a Cuban) needed no attention and only three tap-offs (see photos). No re-lights, no corrections.

    Flavour: The start is soft, creamy smoke with the evident Cuban twang almost lemon souffle like in character, plus hints of nuts, cinnamon and underlying floral notes. Not quite a third in and the sweet tastes became dryer more woody and pine like, but always crisp and invigorating. Into the last third and tastes become fuller and much more leathery/woody ? the sweetness doesn?t disappear altogether ? and the tobacco strength does now begin to kick-in. The finale is manly, full of peppers and something which reminded me of Absinth. Delicious

    Overall: Delightful. A box is very much ?on the cards?!

        Same size yes. And to be honest, from reading other reviews I was expecting the pepper at the front of the smoke. But, with the cigar being seven years old maybe those had mellowed out a bit?

        Charlotte's .... I've no idea where they can be found outside an auction room these days!

          I have one Charlotte left in my humi, cannot bring myself to smoke the last one I will probably ever see.
          "In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock!"
