In Pre-Castro Cuba, Partagas cigars were made in Havana under the direction of Ramón Cifuentes and his father before him (the family had been at it for a while, the brand began in 1845!). Cifuentes moved to Santiago, Dominican Republic soon after Castro arrived on the scene, and continued to make the Partagas line there. Daniel Nunez who was an apprentice under Ramon Cifuentes in the Dominican Republic and later his successor as the Partagas Cigar Master has continued to demand only the best for Partagas cigars. In 2003, Daniel developed the Partagas Spanish Rosado, the newest addition to the family that boasts "the richest cigar in the world". The name is derived from the gorgeous wrappers grown in the San Agustin Valley of Honduras. But why "Spanish" for a Honduran-shade wrapper? "Spanish" refers to Spain's influence in Honduran history, while "Rosado" refers to the reddish hue seen in this very unique wrapper. This leaf is rich and oily with a thick texture, and the stunning red hues seems to practically glow. The uniqueness of the San Agustin soil creates not only the distinctive look, but also a bold, spicy taste with a hint of cinnamon that leaves behind a white, beautiful ash. Combined with the Connecticut broadleaf binder and Dominican, Honduran and Mexican long-fillers, you can expect a medium-bodied cigar with a rich character and slight spiciness. Look for a mild start that quickly picks up steam and builds to a medium-bodied smoke with mild notes of leather, a tea-like, herbal flavor in the finish and a slightly sweet finish showcasing notes of cinnamon. Try pairing it with your favorite Scotch or Czech Pilsner (members of our International Beer of the Month Club—try this with the Kisz Pilsner in this month's assortment). Cheers!
