Cigar News: Habanos S.A has a new Partagas Vitola

I’ve had only a handful of cuban cigars in the past. Some were better than others. I’ve noticed that although cuban cigars have been plagued with consistency issues, the newer releases seem to be less prone to those problems.  I know it’s tough to get a hold of these smokes, but if you do, I’d love to hear what you think of these new smokes from Habanos S.A.  Here’s the press release:




  • Partagás Serie E No2, is the newest product launched by Habanos S.A. for 2011 and will be available worldwide by the end of August. Of course, it will not be available in the United States.
  • Serie E no.2 is is available in a new 54 ring gauge vitola.


Partagás, the famous Cuban brand, had its origins in the year 1845. Typically, this brand is enjoyed by smokers who enjoy intense flavors. Apparently, this Series is consistent with the brand reputation and is considered by experts to be the most representative vitola.


A Partagás Habano is rich and intense in flavor. This new blend, made up by tobacco leaves selected  from the Vuelta Abajo Region, has inimitable richness and aroma.


The new Partagás Serie E No.2 (54 ring gauge x140mm length) is a  new Partagas Serie,  exclusively created with a ring gauge of 54, which is the largest ring gauge parejo for this brand. There are also innovations to its presentation: a flap to separate the cigars in the box and an exterior lithography make the wooden boxes of the brand more easily identifiable.


Serie E No 2 will be available with two presentations in boxes (SBN) (Semi boite Nature) of 25 & 5 units.
