The name is well known, not least because Partagas cigars are produced in large quantities: there are no fewer than 40 types available world-wide. There is also a Dominican version of the brand made with Cameroon wrappers grown from Havana seed.
In general the brand has a rich, earthy and full flavour, which is particularly noticeable on the heavier ring gauge sizes like the Series D No 4 (Robusto). There are two sizes in an 8-9-8 packing, one is a Corona Grande (6 inches x 42) and the other a Dalia (65/8 inches x 43). Ernest Lopez, the factory's director considers the Dalia as the flagship size.
