This Spring, General Cigar will formally launch a new offering under its Partagas brand known as the Partagas Heritage.
According to Jhonys Diaz, Vice President of Operations at The General Cigar Dominicana factory, the blend for the Partagas Heritage features a Honduran Olancho San Agustin (OSA) wrapper. The wrapper itself was developed by Nestor Placencia for General Cigar. The OSA wrapper gets its name from a region in Western Honduras where the tobacco for the wrapper is grown. General Cigar also uses wrappers for its CAO OSA and Torano Exodus offerings.
Diaz also says the blend also uses a Connecticut Broadleaf binder with fillers consisting of Dominican Piloto Cubano as well as tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua.
Partagas Heritage is planned for four sizes – each package in 20 count boxes. The cigars are being produced at General Cigar Dominicana in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
