Here’s a trivia question. What Cuban cigar was unveiled in 2020, had its premiere party in 2021 and is going to retailers in 2022? If you said the Partagás Legado Edicíon Limitada, you’re correct, and if you’re in Spain, you should be seeing it in your local retail stores.
The Partagás Legado was the only Edición Limitada that Habanos released for 2020 and is now available at tobacconists across Spain. Though it premiered at a party in Madrid last September, the cigar didn’t see any significant retail presence until now.
Named for the legacy of Partagás, the Legado was meant to mark the 175th anniversary of the brand. Like many Cuban releases, the Legado comes very late to the market. At 6 1/8 inches by 48 ring gauge, the cigar is referred to as Hermosos No. 2 in Cuban cigar factories, and comes in 25-count boxes. In Spain, it retails for 30 euros per cigar, or about $33.
Now that the cigar is available in Spain, one of the most important markets for Cuban cigars, it should appear in other retail channels around the world.
