Por Larrañaga, means “By Larrañaga” and was first registered in Havana by Ignacio Larrañaga in 1834. It is the oldest handmade brand Havanas still being rolled in Cuba today. In 1890 the brand received further attention when Rudyard Kipling included the assertion that “There’s peace in a Larrañaga” in his famous poem “The Betrothed”.
In recent years UK devotees of the distinctive, sweet, light to medium bodied blend, have content themselves with the brand’s Petit Corona as the only size on the market. Happily there are now four cigars in the range, the Petit Corona, Montecarlos, Picadores and the new Galanes.
Galanes (‘Gallants’ in English) is 4 3⁄4”/120mm long and, with a 52 ring gauge, it is the brand’s widest cigar. It is also an exclusive size within the Habanos portfolio.
A smooth slightly creamy smoke with hints of cedar to start, developing strength towards the end but never more than medium smoke in terms of strength
Available in SBN boxes of 10 cigars the Por Larrañaga Galanes is a delightful, modern twist on a much loved classic.
