Mombacho Cosecha 2013

Mombacho Cosecha 2013


Considering the limited number of Mombacho Cosecha 2013 cigars that were actually produced (800 boxes), I’ve had a pretty good number of them since their release in mid 2018.

Partagas Cameroon No. 1 Lonsdale

This year General Cigars rebranded the Partagas line with new bands and boxes, including the original line featuring a cameroon wrapper.  I really like the new look and think it was overdue, honestly.  The new branding looks much more modern and away from the old Cuban style that we’ve all grown used to.  We have a video interview with Andres from Partagas about the new packing which you can see here.  The blends were to remain the same with the …
