Partagas announces the Añejo, featuring a 1998 Cameroon wrapper which is intermixed with 2013 Connecticut Shade in a barber-pole format.
The Añejo has Mexican and Dominican filler and Dominican binder. It comes in a 4.5 x 49 Petit Robusto ($6.99) and a 4.5 x 60 Esplendido ($7.49).
The Añejo comes in 25-count wooden boxes and ships March 1.
“With Partagas Añejo, we have taken the brand’s long-term association with aged Cameroon wrappers to a new level,” Matt Wilson, senior brand manager for Partagas, said in a statement. “Not only have we created the first Partagas cigar to have a barber pole wrapper, but we’ve also done so with tobaccos that are among the most aged we’ve ever used. Añejo will become a seasonal offering for Partagas.”
