The Partagas Shorts near me is a Minuto vitola, measuring 110mm in length with a 42 ring gauge.
It is surprisingly rich in profile, a floral mixed with warm tobacco scent floats off the wrapper, the cold draw is distinctly spicy cedar, these notes carry through as the top flavours once it has been lit.
In the second third the body settles around a medium strength, with flavours of chocolate, nuts and vanilla joining the bouquet, while cedar remains dominant and a final dash of spice pops up towards the finish.
Despite the name, you will still need at least 45 minutes to fully enjoy this cigar, try pairing this with a creamy cappuccino to offset the rustic flavours at the top.
