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