Habanos Limited Edition Cigars

Showing the single result

The ” Edicion Limitada ” originally made its appearance in 2001 with the launch of the Partagas Piramides – still regarded by some as one of the best cigars to date. Characterized by a specially prepared and aged dark Maduro wrapper the cigars sported a unique gold and black band with the year of production. The distinctive wrapper leaf for these cigars receives an additional mini fermentation for a period up to 25 days at higher than normal temperatures to achieve the unique dark, marbled texture. This additional fermentation also serves to impart approximately 10% more strength to the cigar as indicated by the “toasted” taste of the tobacco.

Limited Edition cigars are made from specially selected tobacco leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone which is widely regarded as the finest tobacco growing land in the world. All the leaves used have been aged for a minimum of two years and the vitola (size) is not currently found in the standard brand portfolio.

Also since 2004, Habanos SA has released Regional Specialities in a growing number of specific territories Worldwide. These essentially “regional” brands are only gleamed from the “second” tier of Habanos brands such as Punch, Bolivar, Juan Lopez and Ramon Allones etc. and are now released on an annual basis.

The Regional Edition cigars are special limited-production cigars (between 1- 2,000 numbered boxes only) that appeal to aficionados and connoisseurs looking for something unusual.
