At the 2018 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) trade show, General Cigar debuted the new Partagás Legend. This cigar pays tribute to the forefathers of the handmade cigar business who helped define this premium cigar brand. Don Jaime Partagás, Ramon Cifuentes, Edgar Cullman, Sr., Daniel Nunez and Benji Menendez all had a hand in setting forth the attributes of the Partagás brand: elegance, discernment, masterful blending and meticulous construction. These qualities are all embodied in this new three-cigar collection.
Partagás Legend is handcrafted in Santiago, Dominican Republic at General Cigar Dominicana. This cigar uses well-aged tobaccos and the blend was expertly configured with deeply aged Dominican Piloto Cubano filler leaves wrapped in Honduran Olancho San Agustin binder and crowned in a lustrous Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The end-result is a layered, multi-dimensional cigar with notes of cocoa and earth. Partagás Legend is medium-bodied and will pair well with a single malt or aged rum, according to General Cigar’s master blender Jhonys Diaz.
“Partagás Legend was developed by Jhonys Diaz, our master blender whose expertise was honed by learning firsthand from the forefathers of the brand. To honor the tobacco men who raised him in the business, Jhonys selected tobaccos from Connecticut, the Dominican Republic and Honduras, all of which have historical significance to the legends of Partagás,” commented Andrés Maturén, brand manager of Partagás.
Partagás Legend will be available in three vitolas: Corona Extra Leyenda (5 1/4 x 44), Fabuloso Leyenda (6 1/2 x 48), and Toro Leyenda (6 1/4 x 54). MSRP per cigar ranges between $11.49 and $14.49.
