Partagas Maduro No.1 Cigar Single
Partagás, one of Cuba’s most famous cigar houses, has released a new cigar, the Maduro No.1. It is the wrapper of this cigar that distinguishes it from all other standard Partagás and marks it out as something sure to whet the appetite of cigar enthusiasts around the world – they are all dressed with Maduro wrappers.
Maduro describes a very dark shade of wrapper leaf. The leaves are harvested from the top of shade grown tobacco plants and after air curing, natural fermentation and ageing, assume their rich, dark, oily appearance which adds a “top-taste” to the blend which many describe as sweet. It is also a completely new size for Habanos, measuring 5 ⅛” (129mm) x 52 ring gauge.

These certainly aren’t cigars for the faint-hearted, and we typically suggest that only more experienced smokers pick up Partagas cigars. The cigars bring a powerful spicy and earthy flavour with the smoke which can be too much for those not used to smoking.
The brand name Partagas belongs to two separate lines of cigars that are produced by different and competing businesses. The first is a line of Cuban cigars, produced for Habanos SA. The other is made in the Dominican Republic, which contains no Cuban tobacco, and is made for the General Cigar Company.
The Partagas name is known as being one of the highest selling cigars in the world, second to the celebrated Montecristo. The Serie D No.4 is considered the headline of the brand.
