Partagas 160 Anniversary, Gran Robusto


The cigar itself has a fine, matt and colorado claro colored wrapper. It's well rolled without any pressing. The cigar also shows an intensive smell of cedar, leather and spices (nothing specific, seems more like a well balanced mixture).

After lighting and cutting the first puffs make hopes for a very complex smoke which will be fulfilled during the next 100 minutes of smoking.

The first third started with a taste that reminded me of fresh roasted coffee beans and a subtle taste of cedar (not as intensive as in the first smell) which lasted over the whole smoke.

In the second third, the roasty taste faded away and a slight tobacco note, accompanied by a spicy combination (pepper could be identified, but it was a well-balanced mixture), to the end some woody tastes join....

The last third I would call the "Grand Finale": Wood and leather, animal-like, but on the top a malty sweetness, which makes it again creamy and favorable....

The draw was all the time perfect, it burnt well (I didn't have to fire it during the smoke) but the ashes fell of very early and looked sometimes a bit ugly...

On the whole I have to say, that it was one of the best cigars I have smoked until now....
