General Cigar Co. is one of the most prolific users of Cameroon tobacco but for its new Partagas Decadas 2021, the company is using a decidedly different version of Cameroon than what it normally uses for cigars.
Rather than using tobacco from Cameroon, General says the Partagas Decadas 2021 uses a Cameroon-seed wrapper grown in Bahia, Brazil. Underneath it is a Connecticut habano binder and a variety of fillers including Dominican piloto and tobaccos from three of Nicaragua’s growing regions: Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe.
It is being offered in a single 6 x 52 toro size that has an MSRP of $17.99 per cigar. Each cigar is packaged in a coffin and the cigars are sold in boxes of 10.
“Partagas Decadas 2021 was created for cigar connoisseurs who seek extraordinary smoking experiences,” said Matt Wilson, senior brand manager for Partagas, in a press release. “The blend was developed to deepen the intrigue of our proprietary, Brazilian grown Cameroon wrapper and delivers the ultimate super premium indulgence. This is a smoke that the true cigar lover should seek to add to their collection.”
Previous versions of the Partagas Decadas have focused on tobaccos that have been aged for 10 years, General has not made any age statements about the tobaccos used for this release.
