Variations between vintages and even within boxes make the legendary Partagas Lusitanias a real treat. They’re lighter and more subtle than their double corona size suggests and present excellent aging potential. FInd a quiet place, dedicate some time, and there is unrivaled nuance in this smoke.

Box of 50 Partagas Lusitanias Overview

It takes at least 2 ½ hours to appreciate a Partagas Lusitania. The burn is slow and even, on a cigar that measures 7.6 inches and ring gauge 49. All the tobacco comes from the revered Vuelta Abajo zone and veins in the oily wrapper are a proof of authenticity. 

These are among the lightest of all Cuban double coronas. Flavors develop deceptively over two to three hours, from yellow fruit and pastry dough, through cacao and cinnamon and then a gradual takeover from honey and sweet spice. 

Partagas Lusitanias soften with age and the final third is a real delight when the cigar is more than five years from vintage. They are velvety and smooth and quite deserving of the adoration received from connoisseurs. 

Because of a shortage of perfectly preserved 7.6” tobacco wrapping leaves, Partagas Lusitanias are becoming rarer, making them more valuable. They are of high enough quality to compete with limited edition sticks but have a more reasonable price tag, representing great value.

However, these premium sticks must be aged in a quality humidor to release the full complexity of the flavor profile, so they are more of an investment cigar rather than a casual smoke.

Despite its size, Partagas Lusitanias are manageable cigars that feel comfortable and firm in your hand. The burn remains even throughout the approximately two to three hours of smoking time, and there is plenty of satisfyingly billowing smoke. 

The double corona format is highly respected by cigar aficionados and makes a great introduction for novices looking for a more refined smoke.
