Review of Partagas Ramon y Ramon Cigar
By: Gary Manelski
Partagas Ramon y Ramon cigars became available in October 2016. They are sold at brick and mortar cigar shops and come in four sizes, including the Robusto (5½ x 50) priced at $7.49 per stick, which was sampled for this review. The cigars feature a Cameroon wrapper and a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. For more information about these cigars, please see General Cigar's press release.
I found the Partagas R & R Robusto cigar to be medium bodied. The predominate flavors were natural tobacco sweetness, citrus, and pepper. These flavors were present during the full length of the cigar, but the proportions did vary slightly during the smoke without ever becoming imbalanced. The cigar was very well made and had a great draw, razor sharp burn and held a long ash. No relights nor touch-ups were needed during the 45 minutes that it took me to smoke the cigar down to two inches remaining.
I enjoyed the Partagas Ramon y Ramon cigar enough to rate it with a very solid 4 points on a 5-point scale. It was a very good smoke, and a good value at $7.49 per cigar.
