Second Regional Cuban Cigar Arrives in Asia Pacific
Posted: March 29, 2011
Pacific Cigar Ltd., the Habanos S.A. distributor of Cuban cigars for the Asia Pacific region, has finally received its second 2010 regional-edition release: the Por Larrañaga Encantos.
While most cigars in the entire regional-edition program have historically been on the thicker side (50 to 54 ring gauge), the Encantos is a slim vitola measuring 6 3/4 inches by 43 ring gauge, which is known as a dalia in Cuban cigar factories. It shares its dimensions with the better known Partagas 8-9-8.
According to Pacific Cigar's press release, a Por Larrañaga has never been rolled in this particular size.
Although the smoke was released in early March, this cigar is part of the last year's regional-edition program. The Juan Lopez Selección No. 4 came to market last October.
Asia Pacific has two entirely different regional-edition cigars scheduled for release this year.
