Partagas 1845 Double Corona Cigar Review
This 7.25×54 stick features a rustic, thick and lumpy dark brown wrapper with a slight tooth, slight oil sheen, small and medium veins, visible seams, double car and a rich chocolate and wood aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smoke producing giving medium-full body flavors of a very deep and oily earth and tobacco with a long smooth finish. The first third mellows a bit to a medium body, showing a creamy milk chocolate that fades a bit on the finish, which carries a leather from the draw to a general earthiness. The draw and finish are both creamy oily and smooth. 30 minutes in the 2nd third starts, the ash drops off and the strength ramps up a good bit. Flavors remain the same, construction is very good. The 2nd third progresses to a medium-full strength body and rush, dropping the chocolate and leather for just a thick general earthiness with a long full deep warm finish that goes down in to your chest. Ending at 1:30 where it got too warm for my taste the last third showed no further changes, holding strength just below the body. Thank you very much to Lawrence Rothfork for sending this for review!
