Partagás by Val
Partagás is among the oldest brands of cigars in the world.
It was established in Havana in 1845 and is still produced in Cuba for Habano’s SA, the Cuban state-owned tobacco company.
On September 16th, 2016, Cigar Journal announced that Partagás was voted “Best Brand – Cuba” … winning the Cigar Trophy award for 2016!
“Don Jaime Partagás y Ravelo was the son of Jaume Partagás, a tailor, and Teresa Ravelo.
In 1831 he immigrated to Cuba.
Upon arriving in Havana Don Jamie started working for Lloret de Mar businessman, Joan Conill.
After a few years, he branched out on his own, and in 1845 established his factory:
La Flor de Tabacas de Partagás.
A strong businessman, Don Jaime owned many of the best plantations in the Vuelta Abajo tobacco-growing region of Cuba.
As a result, he was able to select the finest tobaccos to be found on the island.
