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.
ABOUT THIS ITEM: Habanos have well foreseen the popularity of the Partagas Serie E No.2!!!

About this Cigar: Incredibly aged Partagas Lusitanias from the cabinet of 50 in pristine condition. Very well balanced and smooth smoke. Must try for all aficionados who appreciate aged cigars.
A chivalrous cigar, a true knight in shining armor! This double corona is crowned in a savoury balance of perfection, we must thank the Ligador for his masterful talents. The complexity of this stick needs a connoisseur's palate to distinguish the ripe fruit, pepper, and amber from the initial nuances of hazelnut, butterscotch, and moist earth. This is a silky, rich, and dense smoke with a tight look and an even tighter feel.
