General Cigar Co., which sells Partagas in the U.S., has announced the new Partagas de Bronce. It’s a 6 1/4 x 46 corona gorda that is made at El Titan de Bronze in Miami, the same factory that General Cigar Co. has used to make the Cohiba Serie M. Blend-wise, the Partagas de Bronce is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco, capped off by a corojo-seed wrapper.
The MSRP is set at $22.99 per cigar. Production is limited to 5,000 boxes of 10 cigars, each of which will be signed by the roller who made the cigar.
“For a venerable brand like Partagas, collaborating with a legend like Sandy Cobas and creating a special, limited edition cigar at her family-owned factory marks an important step in Partagas’ evolution,” said John Hakim, brand manager of Partagas, in a press release. “Partagas de Bronce highlights Partagas’ devotion to old-world cigarmaking techniques, and its commitment to marching the brand forward through innovation. We look forward to sharing this exceptional blend with cigar lovers across the country.”
