Partagas is one of the oldest Cuban cigar brands and is truly a Habanos legend. Established in 1845 by Don Jaime Partagas Ravelo who had moved from Spain to Cuba and bought up masses of tobacco plantations in Cuba's prime location Vuelta Abajo. This business has gone from strength to strength and passed hands many times. When Don Partagas was allegedly killed over an affair of the heart, his son Jose Partagas took the reins until finally selling the firm to a banker. The company managed to trade ownership several other times yet still remaining to produce the top quality Cuban cigars it always has.
