The Partagas Series P No.2 is made by hand of leaves carefully selected from the best tobacco plantations in the Vuelta Abajo area in Cuba. The Partagas P no.2 come in the 52-gauge pyramid (or torpedo) size. Partagas is the oldest cigar brand still in production today so there is no doubt that the manufacturing and cultivation techniques have been improved to near perfection over time. The brand was started by the legendary Catalonian Jaime Partagas, who is to commend for some of the cigar industry’s best innovations. Seasoned smokers look at this cigar as a pinnacle of the torpedo format. It really seals the deal with a light spicy start, smooth full smoke and flavors of cedar and herbs. This is a big cigar and will take a good couple hours to fully enjoy. It's also a pleasant cigar to examine and analyze if you enjoy complex and balanced cigars. This is not a divisive cigar - everyone loves it.
