Por Larrañaga Montecarlo Now Available

The Por Larrañaga Montecarlo has now been released in the UK market, offering smokers who enjoy a slender ring gauge a refined Light to Medium flavoured option.



Although made in Cuba for many years, as a machine -made cigar, it is only in the past fifteen years that the handmade version has replaced it.


The name Por Larrañaga, which means “By Larrañaga”, was first registered in Havana by a certain Ignacio Larrañaga in 1834.  This makes it the oldest brand of handmade Habanos still in production in Cuba.


For much of the 19th century and into the early part of 20th the brand was owned by the Rivero family, who built its reputation for the highest quality particularly amongst the royal houses, the rich and the famous of that time.  Its golden band attracted the attention of Rudyard Kipling who, in his 1890 poem “The Betrothed”, asserted that “There’s peace in a Larrañaga”.  (The immortal, if obscure, line “And a woman is only a woman but a good cigar is a smoke” occurs elsewhere in the poem.)


In the 1950s and 1960s Por Larrañaga’s factory in Havana was a magnet for the finest cigar rollers in Cuba.


It gained a standing for the unrivalled quality of it cigars and its reputation lives on today in the small range of standard Por Larrañaga sizes, which are now made at the La Corona factory in its new location at 520 Avenida 20 de Mayo.
