Before lighting up
Smooth to feel and spongy, with strong aromas of earth and wood and the wrapper has that beloved barnyard smell. It has a good cap.
Lighting is pretty easy for such a small cigar. The draw is very good. The burn is as good as it can get.
The Shorts tastes like a Partagas, almost identical to its big brother, the Partagas Serie D No.4. The cigar delivers thick, rich and flavorful smoke, with cedar, nutmeg, coffee and earth flavors.
The flavors are balancing out and the cigar reveals its medium to full body. The draw is still good and the burn is still even. Woody and spicy flavors are now more noticeable, accompanied by earthy, musky vanilla tones.
In the last third, the cigar is very straightforward and enjoyable. It gets stronger towards the end, with full flavors of sweetness, leather, wood and nuts, but it never becomes harsh or hot. It has a buttery, cedar and musky finish.
In summary, this is a delicious full bodied cigar in a small format.
