Limited Edition Cuban cigars selected for 2008 – Cuban Cigar Blog

Havana, April 2008: Montecristo Sublimes , Cuaba Piramides and Partagas Serie D No 5, 2008 are the brands and sizes selected for this year’s Limited Editions which will be at the markets by the end of the year. The Limited Editions will continue keeping all the leaves (filler, binder and wrapper) aged at least for two years.

Cuaba Piramides (Girth 52 x 156 mm in the length). In keeping with the rest of the tapered sizes of the brand, Cuaba is having a Limited Edition for the first time, and it´s releasing the pyramids which are packed in Semi Plain boxes with 25 sticks in two layers.

Montecristo Sublimes (Girth 54 x 164 mm in the length) This size was first presented as part of the 2004 Limited Edition in the Cohiba brand. Now, Montecristo brings it back with its characteristic blend. A Habano to remember, respectfully long, with a proper draw and ready to show forth the notably medium to full flavor of said brand. Cigars will be packaged in SBN boxes comprising 25 units.

Partagas Series D No 5 (Girth 50 x 110 mm in the length) All the flavor of Partagas locked in this small yet powerful smoke allowing us to feel the Partagas taste. The Series Lines from Partagas have become a guide due to the recognition of Series D No 4 and the most recent pyramid: the Series P No 2. Presented in SBN boxes with 25 cigars placed in two layers.

Since 2000, Habanos s.a. has been releasing Limited Editions within the most prestigious brands such as Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, Partagas, Hoyo de Monterrey and H.Upmann.

The Limited Edition distinguishes itself for the inclusion of sizes which are not part of the usual range of the brand, and is characterized by a special manufacture. The careful selection of a two-year aged wrapper from the upper level of the plant grants it a darker color and turns this product into something unique.

Binder and filler leaves used for the making of the Limited Editions cigars have been aged for two years as well. Because of its very special features, the Limited Edition is manufactured in small quantities, which makes it a particularly appreciated pleasure for the most demanding smokers.

The 2008 Limited Editions must be commercialized through the markets by the last trimester of the year.
