Partagas is a cigar name with interesting history to it. In Cuba, it is the oldest continually running cigar manufacturer in Havana, and one of the oldest in the country itself. However, we cannot have such cigars in the US for sale, so if you’re buying a Partagas cigar, you’re buying one from a brand named Partagas, operated under the watchful eye of General Cigar. This cigar, sadly, contains no Cuban tobacco.
However, don’t let that turn you off from the cigar. Partagas cigars made in the Dominican Republic are still good cigars, and while the Cuban cigar market has stagnated and not made any real changes in decades (not since some massive quality control issues were addressed in the mid-90s), the cigar world outside of Cuba has grown, changed, and made vast strides, to the point where brands in the Dominican Republic, in Nicaragua, in Honduras, and even in other nations can compete with that Cuban tobacco and cigar.
A fantastic Dominican-made cigarillo, the Partagas Miniature is the perfect answer for you if you’re looking for a way to enjoy a cigar during a smoke break of fifteen minutes or so. It comes with eight cigarillos in a small cardboard box that can fit in a shirt pocket or purse with ease, mild-medium in flavor and with a Cameroon wrapper and Dominican and Mexican fillers. A great cigarillo for those short on time, and well worth your money to try.
