Partagas 1845 cigars are a wonderfully unique blend of tobaccos manufactured by a company with a history in the industry known for masterful creations. The Ecuadoran Habano wrapper is deep chocolate in color and smells delectably of sweet hay. The Connecticut Habano binder provides a great combo for this one of a kind stogie.
The Dominican filler tobaccos are aged to perfection with an old rum barrel, ensuring a quicker aging process that gives a unique flavor. The sweetness of the filler tobaccos are a favorite for many reviewers, and the critics have shown appreciation for the unique flavor of hay, cocoa, and even the slightest hint of pepper.
Of course, the wonderment of the tobaccos means little without a strong construction, and this stick has a construction that is second to none. The feel is extraordinary without any soft spots and only a few smaller veins to tantalize the fingertips. There is a triple folded cap that provides a genuinely delicate sensation of cocoa, pepper, and a hint of sweet minerals.
Transitioning between the sections is said to be a pleasant experience where the strength of the tobaccos increase. Reviewers note that it starts at a medium body flavor and transitions to a full body flavor. Simplicity is not a word used to describe this stick. The complexity of the flavors and the tobaccos ensures a better experience for the smoker.
Partagas 1845 cigars are a favorite for many reasons. This is a tobacco industry giant that has over 150 years of experience in the business. The experience and design work together giving the smoker something special in this offering.

||Strength: Medium Smooth
The Partagas LR Decadas 2007 is another product of first-class cigar producer Daniel Nunez. He set out to create a top of the line cigar, and although it was a grueling ordeal, he got it just right in the end. The Partagas brand has always been recognized for high quality, well produced, premium cigars and the Partagas LR Decadas is a prime illustration of this.
History: While the Partagas brand was started in 1845 by cigar industry icon Jaime Partagas, the business ultimately ended up in the hands of Ramon Cifuentes and his father. They led the brand to the peak of the Cuban cigar industry prior to Fidel Castro’s control. Ramon had to leave Cuba, but eventually ended up in the Dominican Republic seventeen years later where cigars became his passion once again. In 1978 Ramon sold the Partagas name to General Cigar. Although he was no longer the owner of the brand, he continued to pursue new cigar ventures and play a key role in their production. During this time, Ramon took on the role of mentor to a Dominican Republic native, Daniel Nunez. A well educated man, Daniel became Ramon’s successor at General Cigar and became well known for his advanced cigar knowledge and accomplishments. The Partagas LR Decadas 2007 is proof of what he has achieved.

The components of the Partagas LR Decadas 2007 go through a long, complex aging procedure in rooms of Spanish cedar.
Draw/Burn/Ash: They are then carefully watched to conclude which of the cigars embody the core essence of this line. The final products are displayed in a handmade mahogany box with a certificate to document the details of the course of their aging. The Decadas name comes from the word decade in Spanish, to represent this 10-year aging period
Flavor: This medium bodied cigar has a smooth flavor to it, and the smoke it produces has a light and silky presence. Both attributes contribute to the overall quality of this fine cigar. The Partagas LR Decadas 2007 is an ideal smoke for relaxing and settling into your favorite chair at the end of the night.

||Origin: Dominican Republic
|Wrapper: Medio Tiempo (Connecticut)
||Binder: La Vega Especial
|Filler: Nicaraguan Ligero, Piloto Cuban Ligero

Daniel Nunez was lucky enough to get the best of both of those aspects. This cigar is an extraordinary model of what he accomplished. The consistent intensity of the flavors along with the affordable price makes this cigar perfect for a relaxing evening following dinner.
History: Despite the beginning that Jaime Partagas gave to the cigar company, it was Ramon that really put it on the map. Ramon and his father led the Partagas brand to the top of the industry in Cuba before Fidel Castro put a halt to their success. As a result, Ramon fled Cuba and didn’t return to producing his outstanding cigars in the Dominican Republic until 27 years later. Upon joining and ultimately leading the General Cigar Company, Ramon became a mentor for another aspiring cigar creator, Daniel Nunez. Daniel, a citizen of the Dominican Republic was not only well educated, but also a talented cigar designer.

Draw/Burn/Ash: The draw on this cigar is smooth and graceful, while giving off an abundance of smoke, because of its larger size. The burn is firm and balanced from beginning to end. The ash is white, which is an obvious contrast to the dark wrapper, it was also stiff and held its shape throughout.
Flavor/Aroma: The Partagas Black Label has a variety of intense flavors. After a pre-lit smell of straight tobacco, the first third starts it off with a cocoa and coffee flavor. In the second third, leather and citrusy flavors emerge, whereas the sugary notes ease up. To end the experience, the final third brings the intensity of the sweet coffee flavor back. There is a hint of a peppery undertone as well. The intensity of the flavors is steady all the way through.

Although, Ramon was forced to leave Cuba, he bounced back 17 years later by returning to cigar production in the Dominican Republic. In time, he sold Partagas cigars to the General Cigar Company, but continued to play a leadership role in all aspects of the brand.

Flavor:The distinctive flavors of the Partagas Classic start immediately with the first puff. The first third kicks off the central sugary flavor. There are hints of cocoa and spiciness present as well at this point. It then flawlessly transitions into the middle third where the chocolate and spice flavors are toned down gradually. It continues to give off a pleasant and stable sweetness. During the final third the sweet flavor continues to dominate the smoke, while the trace of spicy notes strengthens slightly, without being too intense.

JustWrapper: Cameroon Binder: Habano Connecticut
Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan Strength: Medium Spicey
Sizes: Majestuoso 6” x 46 Origin: Dominican Republic
The Partagas Benji Master Series is prime illustration of the cigar knowledge and passion that Benji Menendez brought to the cigar world. This affordable cigar had a production limited to only 5,000 boxes, containing 20 smokes per package. Not only does it have a deep history behind it, it was also recognized as #15 on the top 25 cigar list in Cigar Aficionado. Benji Menendez truly put a spotlight on himself with this cigar’s creation.
History: Benji Menendez was born into the cigar business as his father, grandfather, and uncles were all highly recognized men in the industry. Regardless of the fact that he was the heir to the largest cigar factory in Cuba, Benji chose to learn all aspects of the family business. He worked in every department, from the bottom of the ladder, to the top. Subsequent to the factory being taken over in 1960, he relocated to Miami, Florida. This was the start of his successful career with the General Cigar Company, and eventually the launching of the Partagas Benji Master Series.
Appearance/Construction: This cigar is available in one size, the Grand Corona, or Majestuoso. It has a dark cocoa wrapper with minimal fine veins and a somewhat oily appearance. The Habano Connecticut binder and the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua blended filler come together to produce a strong, well packed cigar. The 6 x 46 Partagas Benji Master Series cigar shows off a classic red Partagas label with a black addition that provides the perfect backdrop for Benji’s signature.
Draw/Burn/Ash: The Cameroon wrapper has a smooth, yet strong draw. As it is enjoyed, the burn is slow and even, providing a perfect strength to the pale gray ash from beginning to end.
Flavor/Aroma: This amazing cigar has a nice variety of flavors and aromas throughout. The sugary aroma is a hint of what’s to come as in the first third the flavor is intensely sweet with a mixture of coffee and woodiness in the background. The second third continues to offer a sweet flavor, while the woodsy flavor begins to dominate. To finish this cigar smoking experience, the final third continues the consistent sweet flavor that was present throughout. Along with that, the hint of spiciness remains and is joined by a new, fresh, forest flavor.

With its history dating back to as early as 1845, Partagas Cigars is one of the oldest cigar brands in existence. Jaime Partagas founded the company in Havana Cuba following many years in the tobacco industry in both Spain and Cuba. His ownership in many of the finest Cuban plantations gave him access to top of the line tobacco, ultimately boosting the growth and success of the Partagas Cigar brand.
Following Jaime Partagas’s death and a number of ownership changes, the brand fell in the hands of Ramon Cifuentes and his father. Under their leadership the company has seen many successes, but not without hurdles to be overcome. After fleeing the country as a result of Fidel Castro’s control and a seventeen year absence from the cigar industry, Ramon returned to producing his premiere cigars. The factory in Havana, which was also known as the Francisco Perez German Factory was eventually taken over by a government run tobacco firm. It continues to produce a high portion of the brand’s product and is a highly visited location for many cigar smokers every year. Ramon sold the Partagas name to the General Cigar Company in 1978, which helped to put it on the map in the American market. The Partagas name is still used by both separate companies.
Partagas Cigars are famously known for their extraordinary wrapper leaves. Ramon Cifuentes realized that the richest leaves were to be found not in Cuba, but in the African country of Cameroon. Sub-tropical weather conditions in that region offer a superb environment for growing elite wrapper leaves. The brand’s leaves provide a strong flavor and character, keeping it closely rooted to its Cuban past.
Partagas Cigars offers many options which cater to a variety of smoking tastes. The cigar lines include the Benji Master Series, Partagas Black Label, Partagas Classic, Partagas LR Decadas 2007, Partagas LR Decadas 2008, Partagas LR Decadas 2009, Partagas Serie S, and finally the Partagas Spanish Rosado.
