This new Gran Reserva digs deeper into the unique character of Habanos* as Protected Appellation of Origin. For the production of this Gran Reserva of Partagás, the best tobacco leaves were selected from Vuelta Abajo*, Cuba*, Cosecha 2007. These leaves have been subjected to a long and meticulous five-year ageing process.
These were no less than 5 years of care, control of the evolution of the aging of these precious leaves that, finally, in the master hands of the experienced cigar rollers in the Partagás factory take shape to create a unique Habano to satisfy the pleasure of the most demanding smokers.
The symbolic Lusitanias vitola has been chosen for this unique production that makes the Gran Reserva of Partagás. A Partagás is instantly recognisable by its rich, intense flavour.
Lusitanias (ring gauge 49 x 194mm in length) is the majestic vitola that enhances the richness and aroma that characterize the Partagás blend. The Ligero leaves used in the blend of this first Gran Reserva, comes from the San Juan y Martinez (D.O.P) Tobacco district, where the rich San Juan soils provide the blend with the Partagás brand’s distinctive strength. The Seco leaves, meanwhile, have been selected from the San Luis ( D.O.P) Tobacco district, which provides an unparalleled aroma to its Tobacco, a reason to be famous in Cuba and around the world. The extremely meticulous work in selecting leaves from the Cosecha 2007 for these Lusitanias were carried out by the legendary Ligador Master Blender at the Partagás Factory under the supervision of the Instituto del Tabaco-Tobacco Institute.
The Gran Reserva Partagás Lusitanias, conceived with enthusiasts in mind, has a single production of 5,000 individually numbered cases each containing 15 units.
