Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan
I'm pretty sure this is a leftover cigar from my Las Vegas Big Smoke two years ago. I can't imagine how else it ended up in my humidor. I know some people swear by Partagas, and their annual limited-edition Christmas cigars get stalked almost as badly as the Fuente Fuente Opus X and God of Fire. I've had a couple, but other than one Spanish Rosado I loved, I just haven't seen the appeal.
This cigar, like other Partagas I've tried, was just very meh... It wasn't bad. It was a just a medium body cigar with no distinguishing characteristics. This is something I'd smoke if it was handed to me, but I wouldn't buy one. It certainly doesn't hold a candle to many of its lower-priced competitors like Pinar del Rio Sun Grown or 5 Vegas High Primings.
