Cameroon wrappers were never the most abundant in the cigar world, but when the first Partagas Decadas cigars debuted to great acclaim in 2005, they were still pretty plentiful. Rolled using a special vintage crop of 1999 Cameroon wrappers, the original Decadas was a big hit among fans of deep and nuanced cigar flavor, and by June of 2007 they had earned a 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado that would be the first of a long string of accolades to come. Fast-forward to the present day, and the now-legendary Decadas cigar is still giving fans reason to celebrate with the release of the Partagas Decadas 2021 Limited Edition.
Blended in tribute to Ramon Cifuentes Jr.’s journey out of Cuba 60 years ago, this small-run super-premium honors the brand’s amazing rebirth in the 1960s when the extraordinary qualities of non-Cuban Partagas cigars first came to light. Wrapped in rare Cameroon leaves grown in Brazil, the cigar now stands among a much smaller segment of cigars using Cameroon tobacco. While the aged Cameroon leaf was always the star of the winning Decadas equation, today, its use of the increasingly scarce varietal only adds to its striking uniqueness.
Filled out with a USA Connecticut binder and filler leaves from the D.R. and Nicaragua, this delicious edition of the storied Decadas cigar celebrates the spirit of planting seeds in foreign soils, just as Cifuentes did all those years ago. As a result, you get to light up a medium-full bodied cigar that glows with balanced flavors of earth, sweetness, spicy pepper, nuts, and more.
Highly limited in availability, the Decadas 2021 is presented in boxes of 10 with each cigar housed in beautiful individual coffins. It’s a great-looking package, but the real magic lies in the layered tasting profile of the cigars themselves. Treat yourself now and experience the latest chapter in Partagas’ long legacy of cigar excellence.
