The Partagas Serie E No.2 is a very good looking cigar despite being large. Surprisingly, it doesn’t feel that heavy in hand. The wrapper is rather smooth and oily and has a beautiful Colorado color, brown-reddish. When squeezed between finger, the cigar as just the perfect give, not too much, not too few, and there are no soft spots. On the wrapper itself, the quality of the roll is excellent, the triple cap is very well applied, almost seamlessly. There are a few veins on it, but it does alter the fact that this is one of the best ranked wrapper among Habanos.
Partagas Serie E No 2 Tubos Smoking Notes:
Before lighting up
The wrapper smells of wood (cedar) and of faint chocolate.
Once clipped the cap, the draw is perfect and gives aromas of wood and nuts. The Serie E No.2 catches fire easily and, while the burn line requires a couple of touch-ups to stay razor sharp, the cigar is producing a nice light grey ash. The strength picks up right from the first few draws, despite the big ring gauge. The smoke is dense, chewy and flavorful, with aromas of walnuts, hazelnuts and dry fruits. The first puffs reveal the complexity of aromas and the power of the cigar.
The first third of the cigar starts off with strong flavors of wood, cedar like, there is also leather, tobacco and earthy tones. There are also some herbal notes of barnyard, no spice whatsoever, maybe just a bit on the retrohale. To bind the flavors together, a beautiful creaminess develops, along with some undertones of mocha, hints of citrus and some sweetness. The flavor profile of the first third is typical Partagas. The strength builds up right from the beginning, never overpowering, but it gets stronger towards the end of the third, reaching the medium range.
In the middle third, the flavors remains similar to those presented in the first part of the cigar. The earthiness is now more present among the other flavors; the coffee/mocha notes are also more noticeable. At the same time, the creaminess increases as well, while some nuttiness also appears, in short, the aromas are getting richer and richer. The strength ramps up again, now being a strong medium cigar.
In the final third, the Serie E No.2 shows its real self, that is being one of best Habanos. The flavors remain interesting, and never too harsh. The creaminess is still there, but not as strong as in the previous thirds. The main flavor is some beautiful mix of sweetness from honey and some delicate spices. The balance between those two flavors is amazing. It is joined by flavors of wood, coffee, hay. There are also some notes of dark chocolate, which makes the cigar interesting until the nub. It is a beautiful smoke, which strength remains a solid medium.
In summary, this is one of the best Habanos out there. A great balance of flavors, always exciting and beautifully constructed. He flavors develop like an elegant music symphony.
