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.
Partagas Añejo is a small-batch offering that we are releasing twice a year. This special blend provides the opportunity for cigar lovers to experience the mystique of a Cameroon wrapper in the context of masterful blending. The initial release earlier this year was met with a tremendous response, and we anticipate that the second allotment will sell out quickly.

The limited-edition Partagas Añejo uses a rare 1998 Cameroon wrapper along with a 2013 Connecticut Shade in a barber-pole format. The rest of the blend uses a Dominican Vega Especial binder, and Mexican and Dominican filler. The company describes the blend as medium-body. The two sizes are: Petit Robusto 4.5” x 49 $6.99 and Esplendido 4.5” x 60 $7.49. Both come in boxes of 25.
