Partagas Serie D No.4

Today I smoked a Partagas serie D no.4, a robusto, ring 50 and 124 mm long (or short, depends on your point of view). A wrapper covered with lot of veins which gives the cigar a rough and tough feel & look, a cigar for real men who aren’t afraid

The cigar has the nice smell of hay. Cutting the cigar was easy, just as lighting it. I needed just one cigarmatch to light it. The predraw was smooth, easy and promising. When I lit the cigar I tasted leather, smooth but growing is strength rapidly. After about a third I taste a pretty strong cacao taste and later on some wood. At about 2/3rd there is a fresh mint flavor which is being followed by toast

Unfortunately the burn is crooked as hell. It started at a third of the cigar and between that point and the end of the cigar I had to correct several times. All the corrections decreased the smoking time to approximately 60 minutes, which could have been more with a perfect draw. The smoke was good, nice full smooth and white, with a frayed but firm light grey ash

Would I buy this cigar again? Maybe.
