Partagas Offering Decadas 1998 Gift Tin

Partagas Offering Decadas 1998 Gift Tin

General Cigar Co. has released the Partagas Limited Reserve Decadas 1998 Gift Pack, a handsome tin of three Partagas Decadas 1998 No. II cigars elegantly presented alongside a cylinder of branded wooden matches and set in a protective gift box.

General enlisted the services of Sardell Imports to create a cigar case representative of the Partagas Limited Reserve series.

The result was a decorative black tin with stamped copper embossments, reminiscent of something pressed by the Franklin Mint. The tin holds three robustos, each measuring 5 1/2 inches by 50 ring gauge.

The cigar's blend consists of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco in the filler, a Honduran San Augustín binder, and ten-year-old Cameroon wrapper culled from the 1998 crop. It has a suggested retail price of $49.95 per pack.
