Por Larrañaga was established in 1834, and today is the oldest Cuban cigar brand still in production. Its light to medium-bodied blend has long been a favourite of UK cigar smokers.
The cigar measures 7” (178mm) x 47 ring gauge and, although it is known as a Julieta No.2 in the factories of Cuba, most people know it simply as the “Churchill” size. This is because in the early 1950’s Romeo y Julieta produced a cigar of this size named “The Churchill” in honour of the great man. This traditional “Churchill” size is an ideal foil for the brand’s delicate blend.
Uniquely among UK Regional Editions the Larrañaga 47 is presented in Semi Boîte Nature (SBN) boxes of fifty cigars. As with some previous UK Regional Editions, an old papeleta from the brand has been recreated to dress the outside of the box.
Just 1,500 boxes have been made, 75,000 cigars in total and they are available exclusively in the U.K, from the network of Las Casas del Habano, Havana Cigar Specialists and selected hospitality venues.
All Por Larrañaga cigars are handmade using long-filler tobacco leaves harvested from the world-famous Pinar del Rio region of Cuba
