First seen in the 2008 Habanos Edicion Limitada line, the Partagas Serie D No.5 has proven to be a thoroughbred in the Partagas production line. Top Cigar reviewer Mark Landers lights it up....


Partagas-serie-D-cuban cigar reviewCIGAR PROFILE
Partagas Serie D no.5
Ring Gauge: 4.3x50
Smoking time: Approx 1 hour
Paired with: Plain ole tap water to chase it down.
Aged: This one has been resting for a mere, 6-7 months.

This Partagas Serie D no.5 is a very good looking Habano, no soft or firm spots and nice woody/cedar smell to the unlit foot.

I cross cut with the V-cutter gives a firm, solid draw after toasting the the foot smoking is rolling off this thing.

The first Third is giving me BIG cedar with some leather and what could be oak burn line is even and an huge amount of smoke is rolling of it.

Getting down to the second third the cedar has died down a quite a bit and I'm getting more of that salty, bitter-sweat coco taste. The smoke is med-full bodied on the palate, with a pleasant finish. On the retro-inhale I get dark roasted coffee.

The final third, the coffee has come more to the front of the flavor profile, still has coco and leather on the retro but it's lost all of the saltiness. Right at the nub the cedar picks up again and gives me a notes of toast.

I would recommend this cigar even one this young, it's strong sure and you probably wouldn't want to smoke it on an empty stomach. But don't let that turn you away. It will be interesting to see how these are in a year or so, even better in five that is if I don't smoke them all.
