The Partagás Lusitania has been around long enough to be considered one of Cuba's iconic and classic cigars. Double coronas like the Lusitania require a particularly large, pristine tobacco leaf to fully cover all seven and a half inches of the cigar. Inconsistent crops and poor weather in the last few years have created a bit of a shortage of large, high-quality wrapper leaf in Cuba. This did not stop Cuba from producing fantastic Lusitanias.
These Lusitanias begin floral and sweet before imparting layers of leather, cedar and almonds.
