Partagas 1845
Size: 5.5 x 49 (Robusto)
Wrapper: Ecuadorian
Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan
Price: $9

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.
