Colección Habanos is pleased to dedicate its second volume to the brand La Flor de Tabacos de Partagás, and in particular to the Serie C No. 1 cigar.
Don Jaime Partagás founded the Real Fábrica de Tabacos de Partagás (Partagás Royal Cigar Factory) in Havana in 1845. By 1851, his brand had garnered its first Gold Medal, at the historic Great Exhibition in London. Already at that early date, the flavour and of his cigars had rapidly earned the appreciation of the most discerning smokers.
In just a few short years, the Partagás factory had become a symbol, a veritable temple of excellence, and it has maintained taht image right up until today. Located at No. 520 Industria Street, behind Havana’s Capitol Building, it is one of the city’smost emblematic factories, and an obligatory visit for all Habanos lovers.
The strength and character of Partagás can only be the result of this exceptional combination: the nature of Cuba and the wisdom of Cuban tobacco farmers and cigar rollers, heirs to a tradition that has been conserved for over five centuries. The flavour of a partagás is a faithful exponent of this unique and inimitable Cuban character.
The second half of the 20th century was underway when Partagás offered smokers its special productions of four different series of cigars, Series A, B, C, D with four sizes in each, meeting with significant market success. The Serie C No. 1 cigar in particular, for its strength and the consistency of its blend, was highly appreciated by the connoisseurs of yesterday.
Now, to surprise and delight the connoisseurs of today, Partagás offers a reissue of this gem.
This numbered edition of 500 items of the second Volume of Colección Habanos, containing each of them 20 Partagás Serie C No. 1 cigars, will be available exclusively in “La Casa del Habano” international network in next weeks.
