Partagás Serie P No.2 Serie Sevilla Jar

Tribute to a famous jar from the 1940s.

The "Serie Sevilla" is a limited, exclusively intended for the Spanish market, edition of carefully aged Habanos cigars presented in a porcelain jar.

This fourth edition of the "Serie Sevilla" consists of 2'000 individually numbered jars. It thus comes after previous editions dedicated to the brands Montecristo, Hoyo de Monterrey and H.Upmann.

Each jar contains 21 Partagás Serie P No.2 (52 x 156 mm), a vitola that appeared in the brand's catalog in 2005. For this occasion they are dressed with a special double band and have been aged for a minimum of five years in the best conditions of conservation. In that way, the cigars have obtained particular aromas which avid aficionados will undoubtedly enjoy.

The jar was handmade by the artisans of the house La Cartuja in Seville. This pottery, founded in 1841, was at that time one of the most famous in Europe and has also been named Official Supplier of the Royal House of Spain. The Cartuja is also at the origin of the famous Partagás and Ramón Allones jars. Made in the 1940s, they have become museum pieces today.

About the brand:

The Partagás brand, whose full name is Flor de Tabacos de Partagás, was founded by Don Jaime Partagás Ravelo of Spain, who moved to Cuba in the early 19th century to work in the tobacco industry. In 1845 he undertook a construction of the factory "Real Fábrica de Tabaco Partagás", in the heart of Havana behind The Capitolio. This factory, undoubtedly one of the best known, is the oldest one among active Cuban factories. It was later renamed as "Partagás Royal Tobacco Factory", following customer acquisition coming from high society of Europe and the Middle East.

The brand gained an immediate success. It can be explained by the fact that Don Jaime Partagás Ravelo owned many plantations in the Vuelta Abajo, from which he selected the best leaves for the production of his cigars. He was also recognized as the first to experiment with tobacco fermentation and aging methods.

In the early 1860s he was still innovative in being the first to use a lector. This person was in charge of reading aloud to Torcedores in order to make their work less boring and also to promote education.

Sadly, in 1864, while at the top of his career, Don Jaime Partagás Ravelo was murdered on one of his plantations. His son took over the business before it was sold to a wealthy banker, José A. Bance in the end of the 19th century. The factory changed several owners and was even renamed several times. In 1954 Partagás acquired brands Bolívar and La Gloria Cubana. At the time of the revolution, Partagás was the second largest exporter after H.Upmann.

For the last forty years the brand has remained one of the most popular alongside Montecristo, H.Upmann and Romeo y Julietta. The catalog of Partagás offers a wide range of different vitolas. Some of them also have a strong reputation, such as Lusitania and 8-9-8, a cigar that takes its name from the way it is stored in the box. Still the best known of all is, undoubtedly, Serie D No.4, a Robusto that is a part of the legendary alphabetical series introduced in the 1930s. All cigars of the brand are traditionally rolled "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga" made of tobacco leaves from the region of Vuelta Abajo.
