170 years of awesome...
Partagas has been one of the most recognizable names in premium cigars for 170 years, and when they celebrate, you get the surprise. Every ten years since 1995, Partagas rolls out a special, very limited cigar using carefully selected, well-aged leaf, and this release will certainly stand up against any Partagas, past or present.
Partagas is known for using African Cameroon wrappers, and the wrappers for Aniversario 170 are some of the finest we've seen - silky, toothy and aromatic. They come from the Meerapfel family farm which produces leaf found on some of the world's best-loved cigars. Next is a Cuban-seed binder grown in the Connecticut River Valley, which is draped over a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. These medium-bodied gems will offer a package of flavors with notes of cedar, coffee, nuts and sweet, creamy spice. If you thought that the last two anniversary editions were great, wait until you try Aniversario 170!
