Partagas cigars have long been regaled by connoisseurs for their consistently superior taste and meticulous construction. These attributes were steeped in the brand’s Cuban roots and are celebrated today on its 170th anniversary.
General Cigar’s master blenders spent the past four years developing this exceptional, limited edition cigar, in anticipation of Partagas’ anniversary. The team has called Partagas Aniversario one of the best cigars they have ever made.
Alan Willner, vice president of marketing said, “We set out to honor the legacy of Partagas with a special cigar that highlights the unique range of flavors that can only be achieved by blending with proprietary tobacco. This cigar pays tribute to the Partagas brand and to the cigar masters before us who passed down their expertise and their love of tobacco. Our new product development team did a wonderful job developing a blend that we are extremely proud to call Partagas Aniversario."
The four-country blend encompasses a meticulously-configured combination of ligero and viso leaves from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, and includes a proprietary Nicaraguan Gurdian leaf. The binder is Connecticut Havano.
Partagas Aniversario is crowned with a stunning, organically-grown Cameroon wrapper cultivated exclusively for General Cigar by the Meerapfel family in the equatorial forest of Kadei. There, the rich soil is awash in nutrients, eliminating the need for fertilizers. Sun grown and harvested from the highest priming, the wrapper leaf lends a layered, nuanced approach to the art of the cigar, imparting buttery notes and a rich, peppery flavor.
Partagas Aniversario will debut with three frontmarks, each protected in 10-count boxes and shipping in September 2015:
Salomone 7¼" x 54; SRP per cigar is $17.99
Toro 6" x 54; SRP per cigar is $16.99
