Partagas Limited Reserve Decadas 2019 marks the anticipated return for the vaunted Partagas Decadas series, which originally occupied the top shelves of humidors throughout the 2005 to 2009 timeframe. But the brand went dormant for the following 10 years, as the cigar's signature vintage wrapper ingredient was in short supply.
Requiring a full 10 years' aging before the leaves are deemed worthy, Partagas Decadas has now returned for 2019 in very limited quantities. In addition to the African Cameroon wrapper's intense aging process, the leaves are meticulously sorted, with only three leaves per 1,000 making the cut! This ultra-premium leaf is joined by a Honduran San Agustin binder and fillers of the Dominican Republic (Piloto Cubano) and the remote Nicaraguan island of Ometepe. Finally, the rolled cigars are sent to specially designed aging rooms, resting against aromatic Spanish cedar.
Only one size (5½" x 49) has been crafted for the 2019 return of Partagas Limited Reserve Decadas 2019, offering aficionados a fine-tuned smoking experience worthy of life's finest achievements. Expect a medium body and a focus on refinement, including highly specific flavors of red pepper, baker's cocoa, leather, licorice, vanilla nougat, and roasted nuts.
