Por Larrañaga Galanes now available in the UK.
Members of the Association of Independent Tobacco Specialists (A.I.T.S) were invited to preview the new cigar on the last day of the inaugural Ignite Conference & Show. The Por Larranaga Galanes ntroduction was conducted by Mr. Jose Antonio Cejas Diaz, Hunters & Frankau’s Corporate Director and Habanos S.A.’s executive representative in the UK.
This new cigar measures 4 ¾”(120mm) x 52 ring gauge and becomes inthe widest offering within the brand’s standard range. It is an exclusive size within the Habanos portfolio and a decidedly modern vitola (shape) from Cuba’s oldest brand still in production today.
The name Por Larrañaga, which means ‘By Larrañaga’, was first registered in Havana by a certain Ignacio Larrañaga in 1834.
For much of the 19th century and into the early part of 20th the brand built a reputation for the highest quality, particularly amongst the royal houses, the rich and the famous of that time.
