Partagas Serie P No.2
You can’t go wrong with this cigar. The cigar has a nice dark wrapper with an elegant rustic looking a nice oily sheen.
The cigar is very "Partagas" but not as strong as the Series D No. 4. It is less peppery than most Partagas but still has that distinctive peppery zest combined with a perfect salty-sweet balanced tobacco flavour. Super thick clouds of cool smoke loaded with obvious Cuban tobacco flavors - thick and velvety and a caramel nectar texture to it. Some faint pepper and some very pleasing cocoa and leather notes. The second third give some notes of dried fruit with a hint of citrus with some light cedar and pepper. Instances of leather and coffee creeping into the flavour profile. The final third; hints of sweet coffee, citrus with cedar and leather notes.

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.
