Partagas Ramon y Ramon New Release.
Partagas Ramon y Ramon
Partagas honors its heritage with Ramon y Ramon, a collection encompassing rare tobaccos and vintage seeds from a time when Cuban cigar legend Ramon Cifuentes oversaw tobacco growing for the brand.
In a proprietary process of regeneration developed by in-house agronomists, a special variety of old-world Dominican tobacco was restored solely for this new, full-time addition to the Partagas franchise. This seed yields a leaf that’s different from any other tobacco grown in the Dominican Republic. It is extremely flavorful and sweet with hints of pepper, and delivers a pleasant aroma.
This vintage tobacco is paired with Nicaraguan Jalapa and Dominican Piloto Cubano grown by Partagas’ team of agronomists. Partagas Ramon y Ramon is bound with a Dominican leaf, also grown by Partagas’ agronomists.
With a rich and opulent high-priming Cameroon wrapper from the Belita region, the blend of Ramon y Ramon builds upon the essence of Partagas, yielding an exciting smoke that is at once sweet, strong and unmistakably sublime.
Alan Willner, vice president of marketing for General Cigar Company noted, “In tribute to the legendary Ramon Cifuentes who carried the Partagas brand from Cuba to the D.R., our agronomists regenerated a vintage Dominican seed that had been locked away for nearly 50 years. We are extremely proud of this blend which showcases the very best of the Partagas brand.”
