good flavor, uneven burn
don b on 08/04/15
Good flavor, good draw, but ... 20 cigars in a box and 15 burn unevenly. Shouldn't a $4.50 Partagas (including shipping) burn evenly? I know how to clip a cap and light a cigar. These burn much less evenly than the Partagas I used to smoke. Be warned.

I've smoked 12 of the 20 sticks. Five of the 12 were unsatisfactory in that they burned unevenly. One burn looked like the state of New Hampshire it was so bad. One required numerous relights; I gave up after half way - it was like a lump of coal where the burn stopped. One oddity amongst these bad burns: the label had an overall green tinge. While the wrapper is spicy, I rated this smoke as below par.

Was looking for a change of pace from my usual (La Gloria No. 7 Maduro) and this filled the bill. Good draw and construction. Really liked the flavor but burn was a bit inconsistent from cigar to cigar. I will probably reorder at some point.
A must have 15/15

A well made cigar. The wrapper is tight and holds up well to the occasional gnawing. The draw is superb, but the burn rate is a bit too high. There was a slight unevenness to the burn, but it was easily managed by keeping the fast side up. +4.5 The smoke is spectacular! Thick, creamy and luxurious. I would love to fill a room in it and bask in the pillowy cloud. +5 Nuts! Cashews and almonds dominate the flavor early and powerful soil, moss and darleeling bring it home. This is a full body cigar, but the creamy smoke mellows the onslaught much like nitro mellows a stout. +5.5 (I normally only go to five, but this cigar has a piquancy that merits extra) Overall, this is a top ten cigar. It is a quintessential scotch cigar, though it would also work well with the aforementioned nitro stout. Even with the burn issues this cigar is a must for your humidor. 15/15

The Partagas Black Label Magnifico is proof that a full-strength cigar doesn't have to be harsh. It's the best cigar I've ever smoked. I can't detect such subtleties as hints of coffee and chocolate in a cigar. If I want hints of coffee and chocolate, I'll stir my Nescafe with a Hershey bar. It's enough to say that a Partagas Black has a fine, rich flavor with creamy thick smoke. Nine out of ten I've smoked have a great draw and an even burn. That one out of ten with the difficult draw is easily fixed by carefully pushing an ice pick along the longitudinal axis. They're made mostly by hand, after all, so there will be some variation. Zino Davidoff said you should put your cigar out when you've smoked about two-thirds of it. Zino probably never smoked a Partagas Black Label Magnifico. My Magnifico's flavor lasts until the cigar starts to burn my lips. Then I reluctantly extinguish it. But I have the next one to look forward to.

43 years of (JR Cigar) cigar smoking has honed my preferences exclusively to the Partagas Black Label (Magnifico 6 x 54). It is wonderfully made, tightly rolled, beautiful to behold, sensuous to the touch, bursting with dark and rich flavors, powerful--and even overpowering at times--but always leaving me with the feeling that I have spent precious time with a beloved old friend.
