My GHR friend generously gave me this Cuban Partagas Serie D No. 4 Reserva. What makes this so special (from the already outstanding Serie D No. 4) is that the tobacco leaves were all harvested in 2000, and then aged for 3 years before being rolled and released in 2005. Doing the math, this guy sat and aged in my friend’s humidor for 7 years!
Limited to 5,000 boxes of 20 cigars, the street price in 2005 was $400 a box. A couple of years ago, at auction, a box went for $1410!
At about $70 a cigar, it was, needless to say, an AMAZING smoke.
