General Cigar is celebrating its Partagas brand with the release of Partagas Heritage. Since its early beginnings, the Partagas brand has been guided and shaped by pride, perseverance and passion and this new cigar release relies heavily on the brand’s prestigious history while making a blend that will make this cigar a hit among cigar enthusiasts today.
“We set out to create a retrospective blend that celebrated the very best of Partagas to date, and took great pride in putting together the ingredients, just like coming up with a very special recipe,” revealed Jhonys Diaz, who led the blend development team for this cigar. “This was a group effort, with our blenders in the Dominican Republic and Central America working with the marketing team to achieve the final taste.”
Partagas Heritage blend was developed more than a decade ago. Each of the tobaccos used in the cigar provides a new layer to the brand’s story, with a profile that has nuances from some o the brand’s most popular releases.
Partagas Heritage’s reddish wrapper comes from Honduras and was developed exclusively for this launch. It was grown in the volcanic soils of the Olancho San Agustin (OSA) Valley and burns to a stark white ash and is reminiscent of the wrapper used on the Partagas Spanish Rosado. Only viso leaves were selected for Partagas Heritage, to deliver fine veins and beautiful color, while giving the cigar a touch of sweetness and complexity. The Connecticut Broadleaf binder also adds another dimension of subtle sweetness while adding notes of cinnamon to the taste.
This new cigar is available in four different vitals: Rothschild (4 1/2 x 50), Churchill (7 x 49), Gigante (6 x 60), Robusto (5 1/2 x 52). The cigars are protected in wooden boxes containing 20 cigars each.
