Tasting Notes, Ratings, Brand & Vitola Information regarding Por Larrañaga. Information on the Montecarlos, Panatelas, Petit Coronas & more.
3 out of 5.
Currently, Por Larrañaga consists of three vitolas, small sizes that

This Por Larrañaga is interesting in it's only available in cabinet's of fifty,
whereas every other Petit Corona is only available in boxes of twenty
five. Up until 2007 the availability of the
Por Larrañaga Petit Corona was difficult to come by.
However, in recent years, production has
seemed to have picked up and now are reasonably easy to come across.

all, the Por Larrañaga Magnificos is a remake of
the popular Por Larrañaga Magnum, which in
the 1960's and 1970's one of the most sought after Cigars amongst
