2011 saw the addition of a new letter to the Partagas Alphabet Series. The E means the cigar has a ring gauge of 54. A big cigar in size and taste with attractive packaging.
Partagas cigars have been a firm favourite with those seeking a deep and rich smoke since the 1840’s. Don Jaime Partagás y Ravell moved to Havana from Catalan in 1835 and worked initially for a local businessman (Lloret de Mar). By 1845 Don Jamie opened the now iconic La Flor de Tabacas de Partagás in Havana and procured a large quantity of plantations in Vuelta Abajo. The connection with Vuelta Abajo, Cubas premium tobacco growing lands, the Partagas brand was able to offer only the finest tobaccos in their cigars.
Don Jamie experimented with various fermentation methods, many of which are still used today around the world. One other innovation Partagas brought to the cigar world, was the use of readers for rollers in the factories and this tradition continues to this day in Havana factories. Sadly Don Jamie was murdered on one of his plantation in 1868 and his son (José Partagás ) took over the business.
Partagas are renowned by connoisseurs who are looking for a powerful cigar with a rich and pronounced flavour. These cigars offer a classic Cuban taste which has changed very little in the 180+ years, with rich woods, nuts, spice, earth and leathery flavours. The Serie range was introduced in the 1980 and while the blend is a little stronger, it still offers what you would expect form this brand.
