At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, General Cigar Company brought back one of its legendary cigars – the Partagas 150 in the “Don Ramon” frontmark. This cigar is being brought back for a limited run.
The Partagas 150 Signature Series was originally released in 1995 by master cigar maker Ramón Cifuentes to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Partagas brand. The Partagas 150 Signature Series got its reputation from its rare Cameroon wrapper leaf that was harvested from 1977. Over the years, the cigar has been released using this vintage wrapper in limited quantities in several front marks. The Don Ramon is a 7 x 52 size.
The Partagas 150 Don Ramon will be packaged in ten count boxes – with each box having the appearance of a book. In addition, each cigar will be packaged in an individual wooden coffin. This cigar is one of the most ultra-premium lines in the market as the ten count box will have an SRP of $1500.00.
