Economic crisis and COVID-19 don’t stop production of cigars in Cuba

In 2020 and despite COVID-19, Partagás produced 4.5 million cigars and expects to increase that number to 4.7 million in 2021.

I wonder when the regionals will come out if there are no production delays...

Any speculation on quality? Is a downward trajectory the prevailing opinion? 

It's hard to tell. Sitting there all day with a mask on is uncomfortable(doubly so in Hot/humid Cuba), so I'm definitely not expecting any increase in construction quality/consistency. 

But the raw materials they're working with are, at least partially, made up of several good harvests. If processing was handled properly, the quality of the raw materials should be trending pretty high right now. 

I think buying strategy should be the same. Buy high quality stock and it should be as good or better as previous years. I wouldn't be surprised by a higher delta between the best and worst boxes though. If that's even possible.
