The Partagas Maduro No.2 joins the No.1 and No.3 to complete the Linea Maduro range. The concept was launched in 2015 with the Maduro No.1 quickly becoming a firm favourite amongst Partagas devotees. Due to overwhelming demand, a further two sizes were announced and these were unsurprisingly to be called Maduro No. 2 and Maduro No.3. The latter was released to much acclaim in the UK last year and the former is now ready to join its counterparts.
Measuring 4¾ (120mm) x 55, the Maduro No.2 has the distinction of being the only figurado (tapered at one end) within the series. It is presented in unvarnished SBN boxes of 25 cigars and is dressed with a second band carrying the name of the vitola (size).
Maduro describes a very dark shade of wrapper leaf. The leaves are harvested from the top of the shade grown tobacco plant and after air curing, natural fermentation and ageing, assume their rich, dark, oily appearance which adds a top-taste to the blend which many describe as sweet. Dedicating Maduro wrappers to a vitola is not a totally new concept for Habanos s.a. In 2007 they launched the Cohiba Maduro 5 range in three sizes.
