Exclusively made for La Casa del Habano stores worldwide, Partagas will unveil a highly appreciated size among the Habanos lovers: the Salomones. This size recreates the style of cigars that existed in the 19th century, when Habanos tapered at both ends became fashionable.
Because of their complex manufacture, the double figurados are at the peak of the roller's cigar-making art. If only for that reason, they deserve to be a part of the selection of every aficionado who prides himself of it.
Manufactured with the best leaves from the region of Vuelta Abajo in Cuba and submitted to a rigorous selection, the Partagas Salomones stand out for their excellent taste and full flavour, with an evolution and complexity in their smoking that will be enjoyed by Habanos lovers.

Before lighting up
Young leather. A little bit salty with hints of spiciness.
A very smooth introduction. We must say that the Salomon reveals its great aromas after 5 minutes of burning. A medium to full-bodied cigar in the first third.
The smoke is rich.
A gentle earthiness and some woody notes, all enhanced by a young leather taste.
The Salomon is full-bodied in the second third. The earthy taste is seasoned by a complex spiciness, and some hints of roasted nuts.
This fantastic figurado is very generous, may be too much for beginners.
The final is hot, with dry woody notes and dark pepper. The strength level increases significantly between the second third and the final.
