General Cigar launches Partagas Heritage

General Cigar announced a new blend called Partagas Heritage, which the company says “honors the heritage of Partagas in blend, box and band.”

Partagas Heritage featured a Honduran wrapper that General says it developed for this launch. The remainder of the blend comprises a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and fillers from from Honduras, the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

“We set out to create a retrospective blend that celebrated the very best of Partagas to date, and took great pride in putting together the ingredients, just like coming up with a very special recipe. This was a group effort, with our blenders in the Dominican Republic and Central America working with the marketing team to achieve the final taste,” said Jhonys Diaz, who led blend development, in a General Cigar press release.

The cigars are packaged in 20-count boxes and are available in four vitolas: Rothschild (4 ½ x 50; $8.49 per cigar), Churchill (7 x 49; $9.99 per cigar), Gigante (6 x 60; $9.59 per cigar) and Robusto (5 ½ x 52; $9.59 per cigar).
