Scandinavian Tobacco Group has announced Partagas de Bronce. It’s the first collaboration for STG’s Partagas brand, and its also being made in the U.S. at the famed El Titán de Bronze factory in Miami, Florida. Partagas joins Cohiba and La Gloria Cubana as STG brands that have worked with El Titán de Bronze. The name Bronce is Spanish for bronze.
The Partagas de Bronce was blended by STG’s Justin Andrews with Sandy Cobas and the blending team at El Titán de Bronze. The blend is a Nicaraguan puro highlighted by a corojo wrapper. The cigar is being released in one size – a 6 1/4 x 46 Corona Gorda. It will be presented in ten-count boxes. A total of 5,000 boxes have been produced with each box signed by the El Titán de Bronze cigarmaker who made them. Pricing is set at $22.99 per cigar.
In a press release, John Hakim, brand manager of Partagas said, “For a venerable brand like Partagas, collaborating with a legend like Sandy Cobas and creating a special, limited edition cigar at her family-owned factory marks an important step in Partagas’ evolution. Partagas de Bronce highlights Partagas’ devotion to old-world cigarmaking techniques, and its commitment to marching the brand forward through innovation. We look forward to sharing this exceptional blend with cigar lovers across the country.”
The Partagas de Bronce will be released in April. Partagas is distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
