Every Sunday our smoke club tries to get together for a weekly smoke. The weather has not cooperated the last couple weeks due to the cold and snow. We currently have 30+ inches of snow on the ground. This week four brave souls joined me. I decided to try a Partagas 1845 toro.
This was very pleasurable smoke as I tend to enjoy a maduro and a bit of a stronger taste. This cigar fit the bill as it has a medium to full taste. The only concern I had was that it burned a bit uneven and required me to re-light the unburned wrapper a couple times which can happen with even the finest smokes, but I still find annoying. One criteria I use to judge a fine cigar is how well it hold the ash. My feeling is that if a cigar holds its ash it a good sign of a well constructed cigar. This Partagas did very well as it produced over a 3" ash before the wind won out and knocked it off.
I would give the Partagas 1845 an above above average rating for a medium to full bodied smoke and would recommend to others and more importantly buy again.
Until next time watch your ash....
