Length: 5 1/8" Ring Gauge: 42
Partagas Capitols are the latest addition to the new Linea Retro Series joining the Romeo y Julieta Club Kings which were released earlier in the year.
Like the Club Kings, the Capitols are Mareva sized cigars (5 1/8" (129mm) x 42 ring gauge) and are presented in a 1970s retro tin with a pressure pop-up lid. The design and style of the tin was inspired by the pocket cigar cases that were much in vogue during that decade and includes retro branding which many today associate with the iconic sign that hangs outside the world famous factory in Havana. Each tin holds 5 cigars and can be presented directly for sale in their retro wooden box which is a throw-back to the 1970's, with fold-down front lid.
The Capitols have all of the character and full-bodied intensity for which the brand is famed and have been made using a careful selection of leaves drawn from the finest plantation in the Vuelta Abajo area of Pinar del Río, Cuba. They have also been rolled totally by hand, using long filler tobacco leaves, or "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga" as they say in Havana.
