If there is one particularly famous cigar factory in Havana, it is Partagas. You can find it at No.520 Industria Street, just behind the Capitol Building, in the heart of the city.
The factory was opened in 1845 by Don Jamie Partagas and it has been making the cigars that bear his name ever since.
A Partagas cigar is immediately recognisable by its deep, earthy flavour. The character of its blend springs from a selection of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo region and chosen for their unmistakable richness of flavour and armoa.
All sizes are "tripa larga, totalmente a mano" - long filler, totally hand made.
