The Por Larranaga Picadores No 1 Cigar is similar in size to a robusto cigar, but slimmer and longer at 5 inches long with a fairly wide 48 ring gauge. The Hermoso No 4 is a relatively little used Vitola de Galera, but other cigars with the same size include the Romeo y Julieta Exhibition No 4 and the El Rey Del Mundo Choix Supreme. 

The Por Larranaga brand was established in 1834 by Ignacio Larrañaga and has a well-earned reputation for producing carefully crafted and well presented cigars. There is currently only a small range of cigars produced including the short and thick Galanes, a Petit Corona, the long, slender Montecarlos and this cigar, the Picadores. All the filler and binder tobacco comes from the Vuelta Abajo zone in the Pinar del Río region. The brand produces both long filler and short filler cigars, but in the UK all Por Larranaga cigars imported are “tripa larga, totalmente a mano” – long filler, totally hand made technique. Por Larrañaga cigars have been in continuous production in Cuba longer than any other Cuban cigar brand.

Por Larranaga Picadores Cigars were originally discontinued in the 1970s. This current version was relaunched in 2014 and the ring gauge was increased from 44 to 48. The full name is Picadores No 1 and it features special cigar band, differing from the one on the Montecarlos, inspired by their band used in the 1970s.

Smoke time is 45+ minutes.
