More info about purchasing Juan Lopez cigars...
Juan López is an old cigar brand in Cuba, dating back to somewhere around 1870, but it is not a very well-known brand. There are three regular production sizes: the Petit Corona, the Selección No. 1, and the Selección No. 2. Until 2006, Juan López also manufactured the Panatelas Superba and a Corona. In the recent years, Juan Lopez was mostly known for its regional editions, and we've reviewed quite a few of them on the blog: the Don Juan (Benelux, 2014), the Seleccion No. 3 (Benelux, 2010), the Maximo (Switzerland, 2008), the Short Torpedo (Caribbean, 2008)...
Back in 2011, three regional editions were released: the Distinguidos for Germany, the Supreme for Canada, and the Ideales for Austria. I had a chance to try the Austria edition, which I paid a bit less than 10 EUR per stick on my recent trip to Vienna.
