Jaime Partagas was a Spanish immigrant who arrived in Cuba in 1831. He spent years learning under a Cuban tobacco pioneer named Juan Conill y Pi until, in 1845, Jaime Partagas opened his factory in Real Fábricas de Tabaco Partagas. Then Jaime began buying up tobacco plantations, including the Vuelta Abajo region and the Pinar Del Rio in Cuba. One of the things that make Partagas so special was Jaime’s innovation in the industry. He was the first to begin experimenting with aging methods and fermentation to increase the quality of production.
Tragically, Jaime Partagas was murdered on one of his plantations in 1868, so his son Jose took over the business. Since then, multiple owners have managed Partagas, and it remains one of the most well-known names in the industry for producing full-strength cigars with intricate flavors.
One of their most popular cigars is the Partagas Serie D No.4. This Robusto has a great draw packed with bold flavors such as cedarwood, hay, and notes of cream and honey. The bold but not overwhelming flavors of the Partagas Serie D No.4 speaks of the ingenuity of Jaime Partagas and is a cigar that should be savored on all special occasions.
