Partagas 1845

The newest release from the stables of General Cigars is the Partagas 1845. I have a soft spot for Partagas. Any of you who have been with us since the beginning (can’t believe you have stuck around for over six years) probably found Stogie Review because of my review of the Partagas Black on YouTube which was one of the first video reviews we did here. So it is nice to get excited about a new release under the Partagas umbrella. There have been other releases since the Partagas Black like the Partagas Cifuentes and Partagas Spanish Rosado but neither of those really were pushed or really delivered that game changing blend. There was the Benji Menendez Partagas but that was more a limited/special release and in my mind, doesn’t count (I make up the rules as I go). The Partagas 1845 is available in four sizes and can be found in the comfortable $7-$8 price range.

Video runs a little over 11:30 minutes and if the Partagas 1845 was released at least six months sooner, it would’ve been part of my recent Top 7 Everyday Cigars list (maybe replacing the La Traviata) and due to the soft spot I have for Partagas, the Partagas 1845 has in a short time become one of my go to, dependable cigars. In addition to the friendly price tag, the Partagas 1845 features a versatile, balanced, rich flavor profile with a sweet woodsy natural tobacco flavor complimented with a slight creaminess and a sprinkling of spice in all the right places. The smokey aroma is both exotic and alluring. The solid medium body and versatile flavor profile makes the Partagas 1845 a great choice for a anytime of day cigar whether it be your first or last smoke of the day. Take my advice, go with the Robusto or the Gigante size. I had some problems with both the Corona Extra (burned hot and crack wrapper) and Double Corona (tough and plugged draw) sizes.

  1. I had a Double Corona over the weekend that was plugged. I almost wrote off the entire line but remembered the things I learned from you guys and tried the Gigante size without any issue. Spot on review.

  2. Same experience. Best value with the 6×60 size. Small corona burner very hot and harsh. Will have the Robusto a try. Enjoyable and entertaining review as always.

  3. I pulled one of the corona extras out this afternoon, and i have to say I was surprised by how “rustic” it looked (veiny, bumpy, and toothy), and also on how full bodied it was. I don’t remember it being this way from the La Aurora event, but apparently my palate was shot. I found it to be overwhelmingly leathery with semi-sweet tobacco and spicyness throughout. While it grew on me a little as it went on, I’m just not sure this stick is in my wheelhouse, and certainly packs a little too much heft for an everyday smoke, but maybe i just have delicate sensibilities. No burn issues with the size, but it did have a bit of burnt coffee to it that might be considered harsh, and i was getting some tar, too. Overall, definitely not a bad smoke, and one I think will do well in today’s marketplace.

  4. So I picked up robusto today during lunch based on your review…and what do you know? I liked it. Very nice cigar and a nice review. Thanks for encouraging me to try.

  5. Thanks for the review Jerry. I picked up the Gigantes size and enjoyed the hell out of them! Nice smoke with an attractive price tag. If it wasn’t for your review I probably would have cruz’d by them. 😉

  6. Entertaining review…man your face is distracting LOL. I will have to give this new Partagas a try if you say it is better than the La Traviata.

  7. Thanks for the review. I’m going to a Partagas 1845 event this weekend. I’m looking forward to trying the Robusto, and I’ll likely give the Corona Extra a try (I can’t help myself, I love the 46 ring gauge).

  8. Just smoked an 1845 corona for the first time tonight. What a great cigar! Very nice medium flavor cigar. I agree the flavor profile is a nice sweet natural tobacco flavor with a creaminess to the smoke. An ever so slight hint of spice, which keeps things interesting. Also for a smaller cigar it really burns evenly and slowly. This one has had an easy draw and lit fine. No touch ups needed.

  9. I received this cigar, in the Corona Extra size, as a promo with a couple 5 packs. The draw was a little firm, but otherwise a really nice surprise.

  10. I recently tried the Partagas Rothschild and enjoyed it!! Very smooth and mild. Would like thoughts, recommendations on this and others in the Partagas brand??

    Thanks

  11. Got 2 robustos. Went to punch the first one, cap was so hard it dulled my punch and cracked the hell out of the wrapper, and was packed tighter than a presto log. Tried the draw poker and the whole wrapper disintegrated. Local b&m swapped it out, punched the second one outside the store and there went the cap and split again. At least this one i could draw without inducing a stroke. That b&m is a good store, but they only hsd 6 of these left and im betting they been there a while. Smoked this second one due to conditionnj cant give it a good comment but the 2 little jits i got on the 1st one seemed promising
