The new Linea Retro stands out for its metal box presentation. An attractive design inspired by the original pocket cigar holders that became so popular in the seventies. Nowadays, these pieces are highly-valued and sought after by collectors.
The Partagas Capitols and Romeo y Julieta Club Kings cigar cases feature a technical design developed exclusively for Habanos, S.A. that will solely be used for the Linea Retro product launches.
Each case holds 5 Habanos, with the vitola de galera Mareva (42 ring gauge x 129 mm length). Mareva is possibly the most popular format in the history of Habanos, and its dimensions have been for a long time considered the "standard" size versus other formats. With Partagas Capitols, the brand Partagas introduces again the Mareva to the brand's regular portfolio.
The Linea Retro joins the Habanos portfolio with the aim of gradually introducing this same concept to other brands.
