The Partagas cigar brand was founded in Cuba in 1845. It moved to the Dominican Republic in the 1970s.
The secret of today's rich Partagas cigars lies in their wrapper leaves. Grown in Cameroon, the Central West African country where the steaming, sub-tropical climate unique to the fourth parallel is ideal for growing superb wrapper leaves, Cameroon wrappers have no equals for rich flavor. Rich yet never harsh, a Partagas cigar has all the flavor and character of the Cuban cigar of yesteryear.
Partagas also makes great samplers.
