After a few hints that its arrival was imminent, the Partagás Maduro No.1 has arrived.

The 5 1/8 x 52 cigar is said to be a limited release and exclusive to La Casal de Habano and Habanos Specialist retailers only.

La Casa del Habano Montreal indicated the cigars arrived yesterday. A representative from Hunters & Frankau, the U.K. importer for Cuban cigars, previously told halfwheel that they expected the cigars to begin arriving this week, but indicated quantities would be very limited.

Intertabak AG, the Swiss importer for Habanos S.A., also expected the cigars to arrive this month and Cigarworld by Tabac Benden, a German LCDH, indicated they expect the cigars to arrive around Aug. 19.

The German retailer lists pricing at  €14.90 ($16.35) per cigar.
