We are very proud to present the 2014 UK Habanos Regional Edition: Por Larrañaga Sobresaliente. The Spanish word “Sobresaliente” translates to “Outstanding” and is the vitola de galara (factory name) for a size which was first seen in 2007 as the Partagas Sobresaliente in the Replica de Humidor Antiguo. Only 200 humidors containing 50 cigars were made and the size remains an extremely rare production as a Habanos.
Measuring 6" (153mm) x 53 ring gauge, it is the first time the Sobresaliente vitola has been presented in the Por Larrañaga brand and like our 2007 Regional Edition (Por Larrañaga Magnifico) will be dressed with a special cigar band that Hunters & Frankau re-created from a style and design found adorning the brand at the turn of the 20th century.The cigars are presented in SBN boxes of 10 and only 5,000 numbered boxes have been produced for exclusive sale in the UK.

Ramón Allones Grandes is just half-an-inch shorter than the regular production Gigantes, also a Corona Doble but one that measures 7 3/5 inches by a 49 ring gauge.

The cigar came packed in varnished 10-count boxes packed in the 8-9-8 format, though in this case it was 3-4-3.
Mr. Allones was born in Spain, in the northwestern town of Galicia, before emigrating to Cuba and setting up a factory in Havana.
The tobacco all comes from Vuelta Abajo region of Pínar del Río, the westernmost province in Cuba and home to the country’s premium tobacco farms.
