These mareva sized cigars – 5 1/8″ (129mm) x 42 ring gauge – are presented in tins of five and are the second of two products to be released by Habanos S.A under the ‘Linea Retro’ title, following on from the Romeo y Julieta Club Kings earlier in the year.
The retro metal tin, inspired by pocket cigar cases that were much in vogue in the 1970s, makes these new additions eminently portable and quite stylish. The original 1970’s cases are now much sought after by collectors around the world, fetching high prices at auction.
These cigars have been rolled to the distinct full-flavoured blend that has made Partagas such a favourite over the years and have been made “totalmente a mano con tripa larga”- totally handmade with long filler. All of the filler, binder and wrapper leaves used in making these cigars are harvested from the best tobacco-growing plantation in the Vuelta Abajo area in Pinar del Río, Cuba.
H. Upmann Travel Humidor comes with six cigars in the Robusto size (50 ring gauge and 4.9”) a first for the H. Upmann brand.
Robustos will only be available in this latest exclusive for the travel retail channel.
The lightweight and compact humidor comes wrapped in genuine leather with the iron-stamped brand logo on the side.
Cigars are firmly adjusted within the wooden mould and protected against humidity, temperature changes, and sudden movements.
The lower zipper of the case grants access to the humidifier located at the bottom.

About this Cigar: Presented in limited edition single coffin cases, we are delighted to have this colossal cigar which has discontinued in 2006. This cigar when properly aged is a smoker’s heaven. Sweet tobacco blends with woody aromas to form a perfect harmonious smoke. We could think we are going to find a strong cigar when we first see this 235mm Gran Corona. Despite this fact, this stick is mild, with medium tobacco taste, sweet, aromatic, with chocolate, pepper and spicy notes perfectly balanced. Be sure you have enough time for this smoke because if you heat it up you may spoil its delicate combination of flavours.
