Partagás Serie D Especial – EL 2010

December 21, 2012

The Cigar:  Habanos’ Limited Editions are often a disappointment, this D Especial is a brilliant exception to this rule: two years after its release it’s easy to consider it a huge success, it was already a great smoke at the time and the improvement during this lapse of time is already a remarkable one, everyone who has the chance to have them and knows how to age them, in a few years will have at his disposal an amazing cigar.

The Smoke: You will not get the typical Partagás taste here – the taste of the C and D series or the Lusitania – this is a different blend and the aged tobacco – already two years old at the time of rolling – make for a different experience. Nonetheless this is still the earthy, spicy and leathery kind of smoke we expect from a Partagás. Two years after I first smoked the D Especial I notice the spice are more refined, the sparkling is gone but there is much to be enjoyed in a much subtler way now.

The Score:  92
