Draped in a unique Ecuadorian Habano viso wrapper and generously filled with an intricate blend of long-fillers including Dominican Piloto Cubano ligero, Nicaraguan Guardian viso, Esteli seco, ASP seco, and a Connecticut Habano Broadleaf binder, Partagas 1845 was bred to deliver ample flavor. And deliver it does - this cigar is overflowing with hearty, rich tobacco notes, sweetness, coffee, pepper, and cedar. That hallmark Partagas smoothness remains, but the main core of flavors is a drastic departure. And that's a good thing. If you like robust, flavorful, boutique-style handmades, Partagas 1845 is calling your name.
“This latest showing from Partagas as a foray into the world of eclectic boutique cigars is just that, eclectic. This is a robust and punchy stick that you will be a bit disappointed if you try the "Black" series first then try this new 1845... that being said, if you have not, this won't confuse you as not being the Partagas standard bearer.
The 1845 smacks of a similarity to the CAO Italia. both are fine cigars in their won right. This is a straight up 2" cut rib-eye and single barrel scotch stick right here... yet there are complexities in the draw and the bouquet. I just ordered from the bid site and picked on up as a promo from my local guy until my shipment came in, and was eager to sample the latest from Partagas.
All I can say is wait until you hit the flavor pocket on this one, the 1845 also gives off a copious plume of smoke infused with the carefully selected blends of world-class leaf (mainly), Esteli and Conneticut working together to lend lush nutty yet flavorful hints tot he draw as you bite down on it.
This isn't the Black from Partagas, but it is spicy, nutty but yet won't chop block you at the knees - good stick!”

“opens up with a citrus and sweet tobacco note and just gets better! Is there a bad patagas? Great finish,this is what I smoke cigars for. This one rivals the spanish rosado. Great job fair price too!”

“These are simply a great smoke, Just buy a box you won't be disappointed.”

“Just picked up a gigante, dbl corona and a robusto. If the other sizes are as good as the robusto, this is a winner. Burn was right on, no touch ups. Very smooth, lots of flavor from end to end, draw is right on, lots of aromatic smoke, solid white ash. Nice , very nice. Wonder if it would get better after a little rest? We shall see! But A+ right out of the box”

“I ordered a box of cigars earlier this week from CI and when they arrived there was a nice little surprise inside the shipping box, a partagas 1845 was sent along as a sampler! This is a new line from partagas. This cigar is typical partagas, rock solid construction with alot of weight to it. The flavor profile starts off with strong peppery notes for the first inch. The rest of the cigar has deep earthy tones with hints of spice. The burn is even and nice and slow (again no shock). This is another home run for partagas. Check them out out, they are worth it!”
“Bought two of the Corona Extra today at my local B&M. Great quick smoke. Perfect burn, very flavorful, good draw. Really good in this size for a quick 30 minute smoke. At CI's prices will likely be ordering a box soon.”

“Purchased a stick of Doble Corona at a local cigar shop yesterday, brought it home and fired this baby up. Not Bad at all!! I normally smoke the Partagas Black Label because I favor Maduro Cigars, but I really enjoyed The Partagas 1845! Will not hesitate in buying a box down the road when I have room in my humidor!”

“The Partagas 1845 gigante is a good smoke. It is especially good on those cool Hawaiian evenings and goes well with a glass of Crown Royal Reserve.

“This is a delicious Partagas goes well with my Crown Royal Maple drink, smooth mellow but with flavor.”

“As one who is always looking for at least a Med to Full in a 6x60 for under $5, I may have arrived at my destination. This cigar and maybe the Diesel have earned their way into my "tuperdor".”

“The Partagas 1845 is simply one of the most impressive cigars I've smoked. I usually prefer a rich maduro. However I got two of these babies in the Partagas Perfect ten sampler. After I smoked the first one, I just had to smoke the other right away. Then I found myself regreting that I did not have more! Very rich and smooth smoke. A great roll out from Partagas. A little on the expensive side and worth every penny. I'll be buying more of these!”

“Just purchased a box of the 1845 Gordo. Very smooth smoke that goes well with my Gentlemen Jack. I highly recommend this cigar!”

“This is not my go-to, but it is my number 2 in my humidor. Fantastic stick. I burn my fingers every time.”

“Got the 1845 Robusto in my CigarFest Sampler. What a treat! This is my first Partagas, but definitely not my last. Immediately put the Double Corona on my wish list. Hope it is just as good. At 7.2 x 54, that is my sweet spot in vitolas.”

“As a bonafide CI Club member I must state, that the cigar I hold between, as I type this review, is tasty and yummy; and I give CI 5-Stars for including the 5.5 x 50 in this month's (June 2015) delivery line-up. As I forge ahead toward my third month as as a CI Club member, I have yet to be disappointed by CI's Club member selection. Well done CI! Much love, T :-)”

“I had been wanting to try the Partagas 1845 for some time. I decided to purchase a 5 pack and man, these sticks do not disappoint. Bought the corona extra, nice thick smoke and well constructed. Burns evenly with no relighting all the way to the nub. A medium to full smoke, notes of coffee and spice and a dash of vanilla tossed in for good measure. Yes, vanilla. That is what I pick up midway thru this delightful cigar. A good hour plus of a very well constructed cigar. This one is now in my top ten smokes!!!”

“Great cigar with plenty of flavor with a smooth draw. Will order these again and continue the enjoyment.”
