Read About Juan López
A Spanish businessman named Juan Lopez Diaz founded his eponymous brand in the 1870’s.
Although little known around the world today, Juan Lopez has always attracted a following amongst aficionados of Havanas, most notably for the Selección No.2 size.
The brand offers a consistent medium to full flavour based on a rich blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone and both sizes are ‘tripa larga, totalmente a mano’ – long filler, totally handmade.
