The Partagas Maduro No.1 measures 51/8" x 52. They come dressed with a second indentifying band that reads "Maduro No. 1".
Maduro describes a very dark shade of wrapper leaf. The leaves are harvested from the top of the shade grown tobacco plant and after air curing, natural fermentation and ageing, assume their rich, dark, oily appearance which adds a “top-taste” to the blend which many describe as sweet. Dedicating Maduro wrappers to a vitola is not a totally new concept for Habanos S.A. In 2007 they launched the Cohiba Maduro 5 range in three sizes. However, this is brand new for Partagas and the size is also not currently found in the brand’s portfolio.
A great WHAM of flavours!
This was recommended to me as during conversation I mentioned I enjoyed a cigar with a darker wrapper and as it was fairly new he showed me this.
In the first third, i found typical partagas flavours, then along came the sweet flavour of a Maduro wrapper (put a smile on my face) the sweetness soon turned in to chocolate and stayed for a while.
Second third the sweetness left and and turned much more piney, which then quickly turned much more savoury with a hint of sweet barbeque.
Then hitting the final third and I was punched in the mouth by what suprised me - a long lasting, beautifully tasting aniseed. From this point I really, really, didn't want the cigar to end. A very sweet taste on the lips and light pepper taste on the tip of my tongue. 5 stars.
Throughout the smoke, a very easy draw-starting off a little too easy but quickly balancing perfectly- and excellent, consistent burn! A hell of a lot of beautifully creamy smoke.
When in store, I bought two, one for now and one for in a few months, but after what i can't describe as anything but excellent, i will be purchasing a box no later than tomorrow!
