Spotlight Brand: Partagas 1845 Quickview Take it up a notch with the new: Partagas 1845.This famous brand originated in 1845, not long after Jaime Partagas sailed from Spain to Cuba. Yet the greatest chapters of Partagas history were written by two other men, Ramón Cifuentes and the son who was named after him. Whether working together or alone, it was those two great cigar masters who made Partagas the leading Cuban cigar.Hailing from the Dominican, this re-invention of the Partagas line is bold and guaranteed to make a splash in the industry. The complex blend of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Connecticut-grown Habano makes for one of the most unique blends we've seen in a long time. Encased in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, the cigar is a smooth, medium-bodied blend. You'll notice notes of cedar, earth, spice, and a hint of vanilla on the finish.
