Por Larrañaga Picadores, Cuban Cigar Information
After the Quintero Petit Quintero and Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan, the third cigar announced in 2014 to be released the same year, the Por Larrañaga Picadores is available on the market. Released first to Swiss La Casa del Habanos stores on the first Friday of September 2014. Other Swiss retailers will have the Picadores on sale on Tuesday, 16th September.
Availability & Pricing
Released in the first week of September 2014, the Picadores is the latest addition to Por Larrañaga, a cuban cigar brand that is reliatively neglected in terms of releases. Expected retail price in the two Swiss Casa del Habano stores on launch is CHF 250 for a box of twenty five.
My view on the Por Larrañaga Picadores
A Corona Extra sized Por Larrañaga
One of the favourite cigar sizes is the Corona Extra. Sometimes, a corona is too short, and a churchill is just too big a smoke. Therefore for me, the Corona Extra is the perfect one hour and twenty minute smoke. It will be interesting how will the Por Larrañaga Picadores smoke. Will it have a similar flavour profile in comparison to the rest of the brand, and whether it will need some ageing like the Por Larrañaga Petit Coronas. Recent releases have been smokeable from the get-go with minimum of ageing needed (although ageing is always good), I wonder if the Picadores will follow this trend.
