Partagas Churchill de Luxe
Truly, an obscene amount of tobacco. I’ve never smoked a Cuban
this big before; it’s like smoking a cannon. But what an experience. Easier on the draw and subtly stronger than a Romeo y Julietas, it actually changes, in terms of smoking experience, in the course of the full 50 minutes it takes to consume. On the third puff especially, about a third of the way in, there’s like a forest fire of action at the tip. The operative word, though, is powerfully smooth. In a big way. Maybe not so strong on nicotine highs (unlike the headache-inducing hit of Flagship rollies), but a complete tobacco experience nonetheless, almost exhausting; I feel I’ve reduced my life expectancy by a week or so. Word up to Olav for bringing me this behemoth smoke, and word to the finer things and qualities in life.
