While Cigar Dojo was the first to reveal the details of General’s new Partagas Heritage cigar in February—with General providing a sneak peek to attendees of their Dominican facilities—the company has now officially unveiled the project; a special blend to commemorate the world-renowned cigar brand, which has been under development for over 10 years.
Pride, perseverance and above all, passion. These are the principles that have guided Partagas for more than 170 years. Today, General Cigar celebrates the venerable brand with a new cigar that honors the heritage of Partagas in blend, box and band.
Jhonys and his team developed the blend more than ten years ago, patiently saving it for a special release. Each of the tobaccos in Heritage tells a story of the brand, bringing forth flavor nuances from some of the brand’s most popular releases.
As Honduras is renowned for growing the best wrappers in Central America, Partagas Heritage is made with a reddish wrapper developed exclusively for this launch. This proprietary leaf was grown in the revered volcanic soils of the Olancho San Agustin (OSA) Valley and burns to a stark white ash and is reminiscent of the wrapper used on Partagas Spanish Rosado. Only viso leaves were selected for Partagas Heritage, to deliver fine veins and beautiful color, while imparting complexity and a touch of sweetness.
The flavor of the OSA wrapper extends to the CT Broadleaf binder, which imparts another dimension of subtle sweetness with notes of cinnamon.
The blend of Partagas Heritage delivers spicy notes, derived from Honduran Jamastran leaves, and the same Dominican Piloto Cubano and Mexican San Andres tobaccos that comprise Partagas 160.
Simplistically-elegant box details give a nod to previous releases of Partagas, while the sophisticated gold band is reminiscent of the Partagas 150 band. The cigars are protected in wooden boxes containing 20 cigars each.
