Por Larrañaga Prometidos Arrives in France

Mar 22, 2023

The newest Edición Regional release is on store shelves in France today, as the Por Larrañaga Prometidos has been released to retailers in the country.

The cigar is a robusto extra vitola that measures 5 1/2 inches (140mm) long with a 54 ring gauge, a vitola with the factory name Duke. It is a vitola that debuted in 2009 with the Romeo y Julieta Dukes, an Edición Limitada, and has since been used for the Partagás Serie E. No.2 and a number of Edicion Regional releases.

The release, which was commissioned by Coprova, the distributor of Habanos S.A. products in France, is limited to 20,000 individually numbered boxes of 10 cigars, a total run of 200,000 cigars. Pricing is set at €285 ($304.49) per box, which works out to €28.50 ($30.45) per cigar.

This is the second time that the Por Larrañaga brand has been selected for a French Edición Regional; in 2015 the Por Larrañaga Opera was released, a 4 1/2 x 52 petit robusto, with the cigar getting a re-release in 2016.

The Prometidos is one of five Por Larrañaga Ediciónes Regional that are part of the 2021 class.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it's about so much more than the cigar – it's about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
