News from our man in Havana (well the internet) is that Habanos have announced another cigar that will be hitting the shelves.
This time it’s the Lusitanias Gran Reserva Cosecha 2007 by Partagas which has been rolled with selected and 5-year-aged leaves hailing from the Vuelta Abajo territory.
The Lusitanias Gran Reserva by Partagas launch is due during the Habano Festival and has been designed with only 5,000 lacquered cases containing 15 units each, and will be individually numbered.
Hand-rolled with long filler by seasoned cigar rollers, its blend was devised by Arnaldo Bichot, the larger-than-life master blender at the Partagas Cigar Factory, under the supervision of the Tobacco Institute.
The wrapper, binder and filler leaves –harvested in 2007 and then subjected to a long and thorough aging process- were meticulously selected for this launch.
Hailing from the tobacco-growing lands of San Juan y Martinez, the Ligero leaves used in this blend clinch the brand’s characteristic strength, owed to the region’s rich soils. For its part, Seco’s leaves stem from San Luis, famous both in Cuba and around the globe for the peerless scent of its cigars.
The character of Partagas’ blend, is made up of cigars rolled with selected filler and binder leaves out of Vuelta Abajo, which gives this brand their rich and intense taste.
Founded in 1845, the emblematic Lusitanias vitola was handpicked by Habanos S.A. for the brand’s first-ever Grand Reserve in over 160 years of history.
Especially famous in Havana, the cigar factory built by Don Jaime Partagas is nestled in the heart of the city, right behind the celebrated Cuban Capitol. CTC are lucky enough to have visited the factory and can tell you it’s an amazing place to go to.
