The Partagas Lusitanias is a Prominente vitola, measuring an enormous 194mm in length with a 49 ring gauge.
In the world of Cuban cigars many smokers consider this to be the best cigar they have ever smoked, more so ever made. Changes have been made since its inception, becoming milder with earthy and peppery over time, but keeping its reputation of being one of the finest Habanos in the whole world.
The Lusitanias are a mild-medium in body but full of rich flavours like cedar, baked bread, cream and subtly sweet baking spices. To be expected from a cigar with such a reputation, the construction is flawless, and the draw razor sharp, creating a luxuriously smooth smoke that glades across the palette. As it progressed into the second third we found additional flavours of cocoa, almond and hints of honey and finished with classic Partagas flavour of black pepper and a dash of citrus.
