On to the cigar, and it’s interesting to note that most of the cigars in this line had a similar flavor profile. So my opinion what applies to the cigar can be applied to the rest of the cigars in line.

The Por Larranaga Cuban Grade Figurado is an interesting smoke to say the least. The flavor changes constantly, and contains coffee flavors, honey, and other earthy profiles. It can be considered a mild to medium bodied cigar, and while lingering on the edge I would still call it smooth even though there are hopes and downs in the flavor profile. I’m not sure if these ups and downs can be attributed to the figurado shape, they are there and the good news is they are bearable.

You’ll be surprised at how dark in oily the Ecuadorian wrapper his. I’m looking at the cigar you expected to be stronger than strong, but it’s not. The spiciness seems to come from the Ecuadorian wrapper while the earthiness seems to resonate from the Mexican filler. All in all the flavors balance fantastically, and the light pepperey tones that enter the cigar as it winds down are something that you will definitely notice. Net and

There is a certain “finesse” with this cigar that is hard to describe. I can’t quite put words to it, but I can tell you it is far more evident in the natural line that it is in the Maduro. The Maduro line is definitely meatier, and past enjoyed with something else to complement your palette as well.

So as you see the Por Larranaga Cuban Grade cigars on clearance I would shoot for them in this order: Robusto, Toro, Figurado, Corona…of course not overlooking the Maduro versions either, which had a dark Mexican wrapper.

So I will get back to the optimist in me and celebrate the fact that I can now get these once proud, once expensive cigars at absolutely fire sale prices. What makes this even better is that with the clean tobaccos the cigars are made when they will age well, and we can all feel comfortable letting them sit in our humidors for years to come.

Oh yeah and back to the first paragraph, I did pry open wallet and I did or myself a few boxes. An investment I’m fairly confident will pay off.

I just happend to stumble upon these on CI and had never heard of them before. I ordered a box due to the fantastic price and interesting description in the flavor profile. At $3 or so per stick I was really impressed with the complexity of the taste and even burn.
