General Cigar Releases Partagas 160 Signature Series
General Cigar is proud to release a limited number of its final, remaining boxes of the prized Partagas 160 Signature Series collection.
With the launch of Partagas 150 in 1996, General Cigar’s blending team had the foresight to set aside a limited quantity of smaller and medium size Cameroon wrapper leaves from the celebrated 1977 crop. The leaves underwent continued maturation and ten years later in 2006, Partagas 160 Signature Series was born.
This prized collection bears the same striking quality and flavor as Partagas 150 before it. Cameroon wrapper from 1977 has been masterfully blended with long-filler Dominican Piloto Cubano and Mexican San Andrés leaves and bound with a special Mexican San Andrés binder. Each component has undergone three rigorous rounds of selection to ensure a great concentration of flavor.
Cradled in a handsomely understated wooden box, Partagas 160 is a spectacular example of a cigar maker’s art. The cigars will be available for a very limited engagement, curated for those who seek the ultimate cigar smoking experience.
Of the five original frontmarks, just two will be made available this year, and are being offered at their introductory price of ten years ago. The cigars will be released in August, and will be presented in boxes containing 25 cigars.
Partagas 160 Robusto Minor – 4” x 48; SRP per cigar is $18.99 ($474.75 per box)
Partagas 160 Robusto Major – 5” x 52; SRP per cigar is $22.99 ($574.75 per box)
