W: Kadey, Cameroon
B: Habano Connecticut

Factory: General Cigar Dominicana

 

Every ten years Partagas fans are treated to a very unique gift. It’s always Cameroon wrapped and this year has been picked from sun-grown, high priming tobacco from the fertile grounds of the Meerapfel family farm in the Kadey region of Cameroon, Africa, a region known to be so nutrient-dense that it needs no fertilizer. This week I clipped the cap and saw what one of the oldest cigar brands in the world had to say.

  • If you’ve ever wondered what 170 years of knocking it out of the park smells like, it’s got some peanuts with a hint of powdered sugar. The cold draw offered leather and wood, bringing to mind a posh furniture store.
  • This high-priming heavy hitter hypnotized my palate with succulent flavors of coffee, chocolate, red pepper, and vanilla in the first third.
  • Partagas traveled around the world for this four nation concoction: Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Cameroon, and the United States.
  • The smoke maintained a sharp, peppery hit on the finish that punctuated each puff throughout.
  • In the second half, the peanut flavor from the initial pre-light aroma showed up along with a sugary finish, giving the whole experience a pleasant sweet and salty profile.

Flavor Report: Red Pepper, Coffee, Chocolate, Vanilla, Baking Spices, Tobacco, Salted Peanuts

Overall: 7/10

This stogie was yet another solid release from Partagas and a worthy tribute to its 170 years of serving all the loyal brothers and sisters of the leaf.
