Cuba’s Por Larrañaga Getting New Galanes Size

For the first time in six years, the core Cuban Por Larrañaga line is getting a new, regular-production size—the Galanes. Packaged in wooden boxes of 10, the Galanes measures 4 3/4 inches by 52 ring gauge.

If the size doesn’t sound familiar, that’s because it’s a new format in the Cuban size portfolio, so no other cigar from Cuba shares those precise dimensions. The factory name is also called Galanes.

Like most new Cuban cigars, the Galanes is being released sporadically around the globe. It has already arrived in Hong Kong, where cigar prices normally skew higher than most of the world. There, the Por Larrañaga Galanes retails for HK$268 per cigar, or about $34.50 each.

In Switzerland, the new smoke is expected to be available at La Casa del Habano franchise shops on April 7 and a week later at Habanos Specialist stores around the country. It’s set to retail for 105 Swiss francs per box (about $111), or 10.50 Swiss francs per cigar (about $11.15).

The last time Habanos S.A. added a Por Larrañaga cigar to its standard catalog was in 2015 with the Picadores. Though the Picadores was first marketed as a La Casa del Habano exclusive, it never bore any of the secondary bands or box labels found on other La Casa exclusives, and is still in regular production. Not counting Regional Editions or limited releases, the new Galanes brings the core Por Larrañaga brand to four sizes.

For a rating on the new Por Larrañaga Galanes, see an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
