Cigar News: Partagas Valle Verde Cigars Slated for July Arrival

Reading Time: 2 minutes

First Partagas Blend Rolled In A Mexican San Andrés Wrapper

Partagas Valle Verde cigars are a new, full-time collection that shipped earlier this month and will debut as the first Partagas blend to be rolled with a Mexican San Andrés leaf.

The line was named after a lush agricultural region called the “Green Valley” where the brand’s wrapper tobacco was grown. Bordering the Gulf of Mexico, the valley has a comparatively cool climate, a prolonged rainy season and a nutrient-rich volcanic soil. At harvest time, the leaves reveal a pristine, light brown wrapper tobacco that is rich and layered in flavor.

Handcrafted in Honduras at the famed HATSA factory, the intricacy of Partagas Valle Verde comes from the well-aged tobaccos that comprise its blend. Harvested in 2020, the three-year-old-wrapper tobacco opens the smoking experience with a wave of earthiness, offering hints of natural tobacco sweetness and cocoa. True to the blend legacy of Partagas, Valle Verde is made with a sun-grown Cameroon binder (traditionally, the Partagas wrapper), harvested for this blend from 2015. The filler features Mexican San Andrés, Nicaraguan Jalapa and Esteli tobaccos from 2020. The result is a complex smoke that balances rich, sweet notes with an intriguing spice.
