Partagas Chicos

I got these small 4.25 inch long cigarillo’s from Dale at the London Herf last summer. They are packed in cellophane, and then boxed with 5 in a cardboard box.

The cigar is rough, lots of veins and no cap so I don’t need to cut it. The predraw is fine and the aroma is woody.

The flavor is wood & pepper throughout the cigar, the pepper is growing in strength and at the end there is some sweetness. The ashes are dark and the amount of smoke is ok.

This is a nice quick smoke, but for the smokers of bigger ring gauges it’s a bit hard to smoke slowly to prevent it from burning too hot.

Would I buy this cigar again? Maybe, they make a nice quick smoke

Heeren van Ruysdael op reis Brasil senoritas

A few months ago, Swedish Match owned brand “Heeren van Ruysdael” decided to create a ‘Heeren van Ruysdael op reis’ series, limited edition cigars with tobacco from specific regions. I smoked a senorita from the Brazil series.

The cigar looks nice, pretty (but not maduro) dark with some veins, pretty hard touch and a tobacco smell. The predraw is fine and releases sweetness due to the Brazilian tobacco. The cigar produces big full smoke for such a little cigar but unfortunately the ash is pretty inconsistent and breaks easily so I have to vacuum again.

The flavor is a very consistent sweetness which you can expect from a cigar with Brazilian tobacco and a light tobacco flavor. After a while, just before I reach the center of the cigar the sweetness is accompanied by a bitter taste, not a very nice one and soon after I get a burning sensation on my tongue. I didn’t like that at all, so I took one more puff where I could taste some cacao trough the sweetness, bitterness and burn but that could not save the cigar.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, it’s too bitter and too small for me
