The Partagas Black Label Cigars were created by cigar master Daniel Nunez. Partagas Black label is hand made in the Dominican Republic using a Medio Tempo wrapper leaf. This wrapper looks like it is maduro, but it is actually naturally grown to produce this dark color. Cuban-seed Medio Tempo wrappers are darker, heavier and richer than other wrappers because they are harvested only after they have been allowed to age on their plants 50% longer than other wrapper leaves. The La Vega Especial binder is sun-grown in the Dominican Republic to give it a deep, rich flavor of its own. To enhance the cigar's full-bodied character even further, the filler blend is a mixture of Nicaraguan Ligero and Dominican Piloto Cubano Ligero. Partagas Black Label cigars are full bodied with rich flavors of espresso and pepper.
