La Palina El Diario Cigars
La Palina El Diario
As the La Palina El Diario cigar proves, the legacy of a premium cigar doesn't have to begin with the story of a poor torcedor fleeing from Cuba with his family to the wilds of Nicaragua or Honduras. The original La Palina cigar was blended and sold in Chicago in 1896 by Sam Paley, a Ukranian immigrant who started his Congress Cigar Company after learning the ropes while reading for the rollers at a nearby factory. The Congress Cigar Company closed in 1926 ending the production of La Palina until Bill Paley, great-grandson of old Sam, resurrected it. The El Diario blend is an offshoot of the original La Palina line which uses a Honduran Rosado wrapper to expertly cloak a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo tobaccos.
The name El Diario which means 'The Daily,' and this cigar is meant for daily enjoyment. While the price of the premier La Palina lines may be high for some to smoke daily, it is easy to imagine wanting an El Diario whenever the urge hits. A tall glass of iced-tea is a fine compliment to this cigar, and smokers who also enjoy La Aurora Corojo and Vegas Cubanas will find much to like about the La Palina El Diario.
