The final gala of Festival del Habano XXIII saw Partagás as the featured brand. During the evening, Habanos S.A. would introduce what it is calling the most premium line under the Partagás brand, the Partagás Línea Maestra.

The Partagás Línea Maestra is being launched in three vitolas: Origen (46 ring gauge x 154 mm length (46 x 6)), Rito (52 ring gauge x 168 mm length (52 x 6.6)) and Maestro (56 ring gauge x 132 mm length (56 x 5.2)). Each vitola is tapered with a 109-style bullet cap. Origen refers to where tobacco for Habanos S.A. comes from. Rito refers to the process of making a cigar while Maestro refers to the masters who help create cigars. Each of these vitolas will reach the market in a special case containing 20 units.

In a press release announcing Partagás Línea Maestra, Maritza Carrillo González and Luis Sánchez-Harguindey Pardo de Vera, co-presidents of Habanos, S.A., explained that “During these days we have celebrated and paid tribute to Montecristo, Bolívar and Partagás, three brands that are undoubtedly very dear and special to Habano aficionados. We have visited the Pinar del Río plantations and the Partagás and La Corona factories where some of our emblematic Habanos are made, all of them ‘Totally Handmade with long filler’, and we have resumed our traditional Trade Fair and Seminar with products and experts from all over the world. We also attended the presentation of the new products that Habanos, S.A. has in store for 2023. We are firmly convinced that these new vitolas will maintain and, even further ignite, the passion for Habanos shared by all aficionados”.
