Partagas Serie D No.6 20p
This little robusto is full of woody, savory notes layered with earth, sweet gingerbread and notable nuttiness, especially on the finish. One serious blast of pepper starting out. Flavors are natural tobacco, coffee, and chocolate, with hints of leather, wood, and earth. Thereafter, the flavors get stronger and bolder, and the pepper picks back up again. The flavors continue to get stronger in the final third. In terms of intensity, it is definitely full-bodied.

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 the Serie 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. 2 extended the alphabet series once again.
