Tonight's smoke was the new Partagas Serie P No.2. This cigar's supple but rustic and veiny wrapper was medium brown with a light tooth. Cap construction was flawless and the filler was well bunched suggesting a good draw. Though not as superficially pretty as the PSD4, the subtle and elegant proportions of the belicosos format lent the stick an air of lithe power. This was a cigar that seemed to say "I'm ready to get serious. Are you?" Indeed I was. So with a snip of my blade and a flick of the flame, the game was afoot.

Light-up was uneventful and the burn started out evenly, revealing a medium-gray ash. The draw was spot-on providing just the right degree of resistance to support a good burn. Wonderful work by skilled torcedors. Initial impressions were of a powerful, spice-laced pepperiness that I've come to associate with Partagas. As the cigar warmed up a bit, the smoke poured forth in hazy billows. I could easily blow smoke rings. Soon, the spiciness was joined by a chorus of rich, leathery tobacco over a base of subtle earthiness and wisps of the most distracting floral overtone. For me, this was the heart of the PSD4-character coming through. Amazingly, this stick only had six months of age from the box code, and it presented like a fairly mature PSD4, but with even more complexity and depth.

Around the end of the first third, I started to notice the decadent, creamy texture of the smoke. Easily medium-full bodied, this cigar was still evolving and now delivering its sweet and true tobacco core with added hints of cocoa and cappuccino. So far, I've simply been stunned by the poise of this young cigar. The draw was still wonderful and the burn continued to be organically straight needing only minor touch-ups. At the beginning of the last third, the leathery and earthy tones intensified but without the slightest harshness. Now the nutty flavours that were in the back ground started to assert themselves. As it approached the nub, a final splash of tanginess and deep pure tobacco sealed the experience.

In sum: While its youth kept it from being flat out magnificent, the power and poise of this cigar bodes well for the effects of age. Already the equal of the PSD4 in character and power, it exceeds it in depth and complexity. This cigar receives my highest recommendation. If you are a fan of Partagas, you deserve to put several boxes down because the future sure looks rosy.

My favorite review of the 3. I think this is because much of the review was focused on the flavours and aromas of the cigar, rather than the complimentary dinner/drink/environment for the cigar. And I also believe it was very accurate description of what I've experienced with the PSP2, which is really what I want from reviews!

Score: 8.5/10

I think the initial description of this cigar is spot on and liked the surety of the statements! The description of time frame, flavors and impression of the cigar flowed very well and combined to form a great experience in my mind .. I could definitely see the comparison to the PDS#4. I felt he knew what he was talking about, especially when qualifying young cigars usually do not have such qualities and knowing the difference. Great review.

Score: 10/10

Now this was a great review. The reviewer got right down to business. While reading it I could almost taste the cigar. Now I want one. :)

Just superb after 3 years' ageing, with full, rich and satisfying flavours. Medium strength and very well balanced, so that it's really quite a challenge to identify individual components; a bit of spice, earth, coffee, honey, vanilla maybe. However these are nothing special when younger, so be patient!

in the last week i have had a PLPC (tight draw) an inka secret blend (yawn) and tonight.....a PS2.....OMFG.....again i have to state that im no connoisseur....i cant go on about this or that flavours....and i absolutely love the SD4 but if theres better out there than either of these 2 partagas vitolas then i'd love to get my hands on them....this was quite possibly the best i've had....amazing flavours....great draw....superb burn....huge mouthfulls of gorgeous smoke.....i wish i could afford to smoke these or the SD4 all the time.....hence the inka to my shame (it wasnt that bad)lol. the SP2 is truly a prince of its vitola....including the monte no2.....im rabbiting now but im sure you get the picture.....try at least one of these in your life....you wont be dissapointed

This has marched straight into my top 3. What a great smoke, You dont have to wait till the last third to get the nice spice flavour, its there from the start. and when you do get to the final third it will blow you away with the flavours. I didnt want this cigar to finish. Would recomend this Partagas to anyone.
