    I've been researching this stick and it was great to see this recent thread head in the 898 direction http://www.cigarforums.net/forums/vb/habanos-discussion/299418-suggestions-celebratory-cigars.html I've read in a few places that some people say this cigar has gotten milder in the last few...

    This is part of the ongoing saga: "Who wants to review a cigar" started by Al. First off, a big thank you to Al, this is an amazing, generous thing Al is doing with this thread. As I reached into the humidor to pull this cigar out I experienced a momentary feeling of dread; what if my palate...

    This arrived today in the mail from Australia as part of a 'best of 2008' sampler. Alas, I don't know the date code. The comment from the chap who assembled this sampler: "God must smoke these" Quite frankly, I can't imagine a more enjoyable smoke. Perhaps I got lucky (and I deserve some...

    Starting my CC education and noticed both Partagas and Ramon Allones have vitolas called 8-9-8. Coincidence? Others have that name as well? I also notice that some say Varnished and unvarnished? From what I gather the varnished is 170x43 vs 155x42 for unvarnished I couldn't find size info for...

    So question to someone who has smoke an 898. How does it compare with the Partagas Short, Partagas Series D No 4, and the Partagas Churchill? I have had all 3 but no 898 and was looking at purchasing a box. Do not ask for my address...I am not looking for a handout I just want a "review" of the...

    I know that there are a number of reviews of this particular cigar out there and that I probably should have just tacked this one on to one of those other reviews, but I feel that this particular cigar is so different from the more recent examples that it warranted its own thread. For those of...

    Partagas 898 Unvarnished 70's Gifted to me by our own chibnkr at MMHII in September. Prelight draw reveals a slight resistance and muted spice, maybe cinnamon? The draw firms up nicely when lit. First impression upon lighting is a nutty flavor I've come to associate with many vintage smokes...

    I got a box of 02 La Gloria Cubana MEDAILLE D'OR No.1 in the mail today. I have never had one but have read great things about them. I have never bought an 898 box before and I found it interesting that the box was actually inside of another cardboard box. The cardboard box has the date stamp...

    The Partagas 898 Unvarnished cigars were discontinued in 2002. Since then they've been mellowing out into a fine smoke. Upon opening this sealed box each cigar showed a nice amount of plume and smelled terrific out of the box. The unvarnished version is a bit shorter than the varnished. But...

    I got home yesterday tired and still in a bit of a muddle. My wife had to run off to the grocery store to pick up a few things for dinners. I calculate drive time, shoping, preping food as just enough time for a nice cgiar. I find this great looking 898 with a red band saying, "ohh pick me...

    This cigar is surprising the crap out of me. It's one of the best cigars that I have smoked lately, and I have smoked quite a few great cigars in the past few months. I smoked an 06 BGM last night and this thing blows it out of the water. It's buttery, creamy, spicy and just plain great...

    I indulged in this cigar last night while reading a book. I was able to sample this because of the generosity of EnyaFanJT at our Hillbilly Herf. Prelight looks of this cigar were great. Had a nice strong smell and a flawless wrapper. This si described as a Dalia and has a RG of 46 and length...
