General Cigar has announced the Partagas de Bronce, the latest in a series of collaborations with El Titán de Bronze Cigar Factory. This is the first Partagas cigar made in America. Partagas de Bronce follows the Cohiba Serie M and La Gloria Cubana Eighth Street as cigars made for the company by El Titán de Bronze. The cigar’s name calls upon the Spanish spelling of “bronce” in tribute to the origins of Partagas and El Titan de Bronze.
Partagas de Bronce was blended by STG’s Justin Andrews abd Sandy Cobas with her blending team at El Titán de Bronze. The blend uses a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, but no other blend info was given in a press release other than that it is a Nicaraguan puro. It is described as medium- bodied.
For a venerable brand like Partagas, collaborating with a legend like Sandy Cobas and creating a special, limited edition cigar at her family-owned factory marks an important step in Partagas’ evolution. Partagas de Bronce highlights Partagas’ devotion to old-world cigarmaking techniques, and its commitment to marching the brand forward through innovation. We look forward to sharing this exceptional blend with cigar lovers across the country.John Hakim, brand manager of Partagas
