As one of the oldest continuously operating brands in existence, it's somewhat surprising that Partagas has never offered a barber pole-style cigar... until now! Enter the Partagas Añejo, a delightful blend that seeks to highlight the brand's well-known penchant for prime Cameroon wrapper, intertwining the leaf with the soft nuances of Connecticut Shade.
Not only this, but Partagas pulled out all the stops for the Partagas Añejo cigar, opting for a well-aged 1998 crop of Cameroon, with the USA-grown Connecticut originating from a 2013 harvest. These stunning leaves are joined by a Dominican binder and fillers of the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
What does the Partagas Añejo cigar taste like?
As a seasonal release from Partagas, the Partagas Añejo cigar allows for a unique change of pace within the famed Partagas line. The blend is mild to medium in intensity, unveiling unique flavors of cedar, barnyard hay, tangy citrus, and touches of red pepper flakes.
