Cigar News: Partagas Añejo Is Coming Back

Partagas will soon ship this year’s second allotment of “Añejo,” a refined cigar named for the profoundly-aged wrapper tobaccos that define its appearance and attributes.

Shipping to retailers on October 3, Partagas Añejo is being re-released in the two original sizes that launched earlier this year. Both frontmarks are 4.5” in length as commanded by the scarcity and fragility of the cigar’s Cameroon wrapper leaves.

  • Petit Robusto (4.5” x 49) – MSRP per cigar $6.99 (25 cigars per box)
  • Esplendido (4.5” x 60) – MSRP per cigar $7.49 (25 cigars per box)

John Hakim, brand manager of Partagas said

“Partagas Añejo is a small-batch offering that we are releasing twice a year. This special blend provides the opportunity for cigar lovers to experience the mystique of a Cameroon wrapper in the context of masterful blending. The initial release earlier this year was met with a tremendous response, and we anticipate that the second allotment will sell out quickly.”

The limited-edition Partagas Añejo is predominantly adorned with a rare 1998 Cameroon which is intertwined with 2013 Connecticut Shade in a barber-pole format. The aged wrapper tobaccos establish a foundation of exceptional depth. When blended with the Mexican and Dominican filler and Dominican Vega Especial binder, the complexity deepens to deliver an intricately layered smoking experience.

The company notes:

Partagas Añejo starts off mellow and unfolds to medium-body as the smoke progresses. Notes of wood, leather and earth abound, stemming from the artisanal blend.
