Cigar lovers from across the world praised Cuba's Partagas brand in this capital on Wednesday, in an unusual meeting of sybarites who maintain strong ties with the country, thanks to Cuban cigars.
The meeting brought together a group of 260 friends and customers of the Partagas Cigar House of this city who previously had the privilege of tasting the La Cabaña vitola, belonging to the San Cristobal de La Habana brand, presented during the beginning of the 32nd Meeting of that famous cigar shop, located behind the Capitolio building of Havana.
The encounter celebrated the 500th years of this capital (November 16) in a very unique way: through the famous Cuban Premium cigar store and with a cigar that pays homage to the city.
The Director of the Havana franchise of the Habanos S.A. international corporation, Nestor Valera, offered a speech praising the Partagas brand at the opening ceremony of the meeting of friends and clients (November 18 to 22).
He stressed to participants that this brand offers a medium-soft flavor, and its format, with a 50mm diameter and a length of 155mm, makes it a delight for the most demanding lover of Cuban cigars.
On Monday, according to reports from the organizers, attendees received a bag with exclusive cigars: White Churchill by Romeo y Julieta, Quaid'Orsay, Montecristo Tube Series D No.4 by Partagas, Partagas Salomón, and H'Upmann Robusto Total.
The event brings together people from Germany, Belgium, Canada, China, Spain, Holland, Japan, Grand Cayman, United States, Finland, France, Italy, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Russia, Brazil, Kuwait, Qatar, Colombia, Cameroon and Sweden.
The Casa del Habano franchise emerged in 1990 in Cancun, Mexico, and three years later the first installation of this type was opened in Havana, that of Partagas.
Cuba is world famous for its cigars, which experts considered the best in the world due to the triple conditions of soil, climate and expertise of producers.
