A new Partagas 1845 cigar is being added to the General Cigar Company’s Partagas line.  Some preliminary information appeared in the March 20th, 2012 edition of Cigar Insider on this new release scheduled to hit retailers in April. According to the article, the blend was a collaboration between Jhonys Diaz, Francisco Rodriguez, and Yuri Guillen of General Cigars.   Benji Menendez served as an advisor for the project.
