La Palina Classic Cigars
La Palina Classic
The La Palina Classic is for all intents and purposes a cigar not produced since its quiet discontinuation in 1926. Fortunately, the decedents of original creator Samuel Paley have reimagined the cigar for today’s palates. At the same time, it continues to honor its namesake, Paley’s wife Goldie, by remaining a classically styled and elegant smoke capable of satisfying any enthusiast regardless of their usual preferences. With the help of Avelino Lara, fabled Cuban Master Blender responsible for Castro’s Cohibas as well as many of Graycliff’s popular brands, Samuel’s great grandson Bill has crafted an exquisite smoke rolled in the Dominican Republic and containing finely-aged Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos beneath a binder from Ecuador and a Habano wrapper from Brazil.
The first inch or so builds a rich earthiness on the tongue while a thick vanilla creaminess is detected by the lips during the exhale, and the sold gray ash holds tight well into the first half when some soft spice is enhanced with savory charred cedar notes. These flavors continue to evolve through the remainder of the experience, sometimes adding in a honeyed sweetness or even a ripe hay-like expression. Want to get you buddy into stogies or perhaps you desire to impress your cigar-loving boss during salary negotiations? The La Palina Classic is perfect for either, and for any other reason you can imagine. Fans of recent medium-bodied hits like the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection or 7-20-4 will find much in common.
