This famous brand, originated in 1845 not long after Jaime Partagas sailed from Spain to Cuba. Yet the greatest chapters of Partagas history were written by two other men, Ramón Cifuentes and the son who was named after him. Whether working together or alone, it was those two great cigar masters who made Partagas the leading Cuban cigar. Then in 196l, two years after Fidel Castro had seized control of the Cuban government, Ramón Cifuentes was forced to flee the island. Seventeen years later, however, he succeeded in creating his Partagas cigars again, this time in the Dominican Republic, where the unmatched Cifuentes tradition of cigar making remains alive and well.

Partagas Sampler Packs
Extending the brand that boasts “the richest cigars in the world”, Partagas Black label cigars have been created to appeal to smokers who enjoy a rich taste in a big ring-gauge. These very full-bodied Partagas cigars are distinguished by a flavorful sun-grown wrapper.
Partagas Cifuentes Blend is a limited-availability extension to the Partagas portfolio of cigars. It builds upon the legacy of Ramon Cifuentes by introducing a cigar specially blended for the Fall season by Ramon’s protégés, Daniel Nunez and Benji Menendez.
The Spanish Rosado name is derived from the wrapper that is grown exclusively for General Cigar in the San Agustin Valley in Honduras. "Spanish" refers to the country of Spain's influence in Honduran history, while "Rosado" refers to the reddish hue found in each wrapper.
The secret of today’s rich Partagas cigars lies in their wrapper leaves. Grown in Cameroon, the Central West African country where the steaming, sub-tropical climate unique to the fourth parallel is ideal for growing superb wrapper leaves, the Cameroon wrapper has no equal for rich flavor. Indeed, Ramón Cifuentes determined that he could begin producing his Partagas cigars again only after he had discovered, years after the Cuban embargo had begun, that the best wrapper leaves were being grown in Cameroon rather than Cuba. The result is the richest of cigars with a deeply mellow taste.
