Though long overdue, the Partagás Capitols will be arriving in Switzerland’s La Casa del Habano shops next week on August 12 and then at Habanos Specialist stores the following week on August 19.

First announced in 2017, the Partagás Capitols are part of a handmade series that global Cuban cigar distributor Habanos S.A. calls the Línea Retro, which puts popular Cuban brands in portable tins designed to resemble the swanky pocket holders popular in the 1970s. 

Set to retail for 65 Swiss francs (about $70) per tin, the Partagás Capitols measure 5 1/8 inches by 42 ring gauge, and come in five-count tins, much like the Romeo y Julieta Club Kings, which are also part of the Línea Retro. 

There’s no specific date as to when the Partagás Capitols will ship to the rest of the global market.
