Today, in the Tabacalera A Fuente factory, each Cuesta-Rey cigar is 100% handmade. This is why each cigar is made firm and solid, while still providing an easy draw. The finest Dominican and Brazilian aged long filler tobaccos are skillfully blended with specially selected mello Dominican binder. The cigars are finished with prime grade Connecticut Shade wrapper. Cuesta-Rey cigars are then placed in a special cedar aging room for 35 days. Here is where the various individual tobaccos become one smooth, compatible blend. The result is a consistently superb tasting cigar.
The secret of today's rich Partagas cigars lies in their wrapper leaves. Grown in Cameroon, the Central West African country where the steaming, sub-tropical climate unique to the fourth parallel is ideal for growing superb wrapper leaves, Cameroon wrappers have no equals for rich flavor. So rich yet never harsh, a Partagas cigar has all the flavor and character that is about as close as you can get to the cigars made in Cuba B.C.(before Castro).
Produced in the My Father cigar factory, famed factory of Don Pepin cigars, the new Jaime Garcia Reserve Especiale delivers on taste and quality. Some of the best cigars to come out of Nicaragua have been produced in this factory and this cigar is no different. A dark, oily wrapper accentuates the Nicaraguan filler and delivers a medium to full bodied smoke.
