Partagas Aristocrats 25p
A punch of green pepper and coffee. The cigar soon smooths out with some cocoa, and develops creaminess after 1/3. It's amazing that Partagas managed to pack a strong variation in this little vitola.
The price of this cigar is a key element in its rating, since many cigars cost more with nothing extra to offer. Try Partagas Aristocrats, and be amazed at what you'll find.

If there is one particularly famous cigar factory in Havana, it is Partagas. You can find it at No. 520 Industria Street, just behind the Capitol building, in the heart of the city. The factory was opened in 1845 by Don Jaime Partagas and it has been making the cigars that bear his name ever since.
A Partagas is immediately recognisable by its deep, earthy flavour. The character of its blend springs from a selection of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone and chosen for their unmistakable richness of flavour and aroma.
Partagas come in a wide array of shapes and sizes notably the Lusitania and the 8-9-8, a cigar that is named after the way it is arranged in its box.
But perhaps the best known of all Partagas is theSerie D No. 4, the robusto size that formed part of the legendary Partagas alphabet series that dates back to the 1930’s. In 2005 a Pirámide, the Partagas Serie P No. 2, was added to the range, which has fast become a cigar of choice amongst lovers of full-flavoured Habanos. In 2011 the Serie D No.5 and the heavy ring gauge Serie E No. 2extended the alphabet series once again.
