I like Partagas, but the fascination with Cuban cigars in the US is getting laughable since they're not better than other stuff coming from the area and in my opinion the greater variety of non-Cubans yields some cigars that I think are all-in-all simply better than many brands coming from Cuba. Like many things in the US (and especially here on SF) I've come to see them as a trapping of gentility.
I smoke Partagas here, but when I go back to the U.S. I can't wait to go to a stockist that carries Tatuajes which I can't find where I am now.
