Por Larranaga Picadores LCDH
Ring Gauge: 48
There’s always a tinge of excitement involved when a discontinued Cuban cigar makes an unexpected comeback. Since its re-release, Por Larranaga’s Picadores has evolved upwards in size: where the model of the 1970’s was a slim 5″x44, the re-release is closer to a proper Robusto at 5″x48. This makes it the only Por Larranaga Robusto on the market, and this larger ring gauge increases the complexity, combining flavours that range from coffee bitter to creamy sweet. At a total of just 8,400 boxes, this is a limited release cigar made exclusively for La Casa del Habano stores and ‘Habanos Specialists’.
Alec Bradley Black Market Gordo
Ring Gauge: 60
Alec Bradley’s Black Market line was first released in 2011 at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada. This series offers more strength than the typical Bradley, and features a blend of Honduran Jamastran and Panamanian long fillers, a Sumatra binder and a dark Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper. Spice and pepper with some black licorice sweetness can be expected among the flavours.
