This week, Partagas (STG) is shipping the second allotment of their “Añejo.” This cigar is named after the well-aged wrapper tobaccos make up the barber pole look. Beginning October 3, Partagas Añejo is re-releasing the cigar in the smae two original sizes that launched earlier this year. Both vitiolas are 4.5” in length because of the scarcity and fragility of the cigar’s Cameroon wrapper. We reviewed this cigar earlier this year and we gave it a 91 in our blind testing.
"Overall, this was a solid straight-shooter flavor-wise. Comprised of mostly leather, brown sugar, white & black pepper with some wood notes, this cigar meandered from medium to full body while it burned down. While it didn’t absolutely thrill me, it was an okay cigar that is sure to please somebody!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
General Cigar is adding another cigar to its Decedas lineup: Partagas Decadas 2021. This limited edition cigar is dedicated to Partagas’ founder Ramón Cifuentes The new blend uses a special Brazilian-grown Cameroon wrapper, a first for Partagas.
Partagas Limited Reserve Decadas have had appearances in 2005 and 2009, and are regarded as some of the brands best blends. 2019 will see a limited return of this line. This new line was shown off at IPCPR.
Partagas is adding a new size in a tubo format to their classic lineup this month. This evolves the traditional Partagas “yellow box” look that consists of eleven frontmarks. The new Toro size will ship September 23 and will be packaged in a vivid yellow tube.
General Cigar has announced a new line in the Partagas brand: Añejo. The word anejo refers to the well-aged wrapper tobacco that defines its appearance and its taste. It is rolled at General Cigar Dominicana and ships to retailers on March 1.
"This was a very nice smoke. It didn't turn out to be the spice/pepper bomb that I expected based on its looks. I picked up lots of different flavors including floral, white pepper, creaminess, bubble gum, wood, and earth. I would definitely smoke this again, and would possibly consider a fiver. " -Mickey T.

"A decent looking stick, with great pre-light aromas, and lackluster construction and burn. The flavor profile was okay, middle of the road for me, I feel the lightly packed/rolled tobacco caused this stick to burn too quickly, causing off flavors from the high burn temp. I’d smoke it again, but it wouldn’t be my first choice as the flavor profile was pretty straight forward and didn’t have a level of complexity that I am typically accustomed with true premium cigars. While not the bottom of the barrel in the premium world, a noteworthy smoke that you should try!" -John A. (Bostoneo)

"Exceptional smoke in my estimation. Reminded me quite a bit of a Padron 1926. Big flavor, powerful, lots of smoke. Great flavors of chocolate with some background spice and sweetness. Not really a lot of transitional flavors, but the core of this was so enjoyable I really wasn't interested in going anywhere else. I enjoyed every second of this, and I'm ready to go buy a bunch more. " -John I. (John I.)
