Last night, Hunters & Frankau, the official Habanos distributors in the United Kingdom had 47 simultaneous release parties for the Por Larrañaga Larrañaga 47, including all the Turmeaus Puffin’ Rooms all over the United Kingdom. Our reporter Usman was at one of those events and he will be writing a first-hand review of the night soon. During the event, everyone got two of the cigars and a Hine cognac. Each attendee lit the cigar at exactly 6:30 to celebrate the launch.

The Por Larrañaga Larrañaga 47 or PL47 for short is a classic “Churchill” vitola and is presented in an impressive unvarnished Semi Boîte Nature box of 50 cigars. This is the first time a UK Habanos Regional Edition has been offered to the market in this format. As with some previous UK Regional Editions, an old papeleta from the brand has been recreated to dress the outside of the box.

Unlike most cabinets/boxes housing fifty Habanos, the cigars are layered in three rows of thirteen and one row of eleven rather than tied into a bundle with ribbon. This style of box is considered an outstanding way of ageing cigars in the medium and long term.

Only 1,500 numbered boxes have been produced which will be made available exclusively to the UK market.

The name Por Larrañaga, which means “By Larrañaga”, was first registered in Havana by Ignacio Larrañaga in 1834. This was just 24 years after the very first cigar brands were registered, and makes Por Larrañaga the oldest brand of handmade Habanos still in production.

Although Por Larrañaga is classified light to medium bodied, and is relatively subtle and easy going, it has a reputation for outstanding ageing potential. Previous UK Regional Editions from the brand, most notably the 2007 Magnifico, have born this out and have become extremely collectable.
