La Galera Habano

La Galera - Spanish for tobacco kitchen

Ever heard of Jochy Blanco? You should have. He’s a fourth generation tobacco grower and cigar manufacturer in the Dominican Republic, and his Tabacalera Palma factory was one of the first established factories in this country many years ago. He grows some of the finest Dominican Tobacco out there and has been producing cigars for countless other brands that you’ve likely enjoyed before. In 2016, Jochy decided it was time to create a brand of his own to be the new flagship brand of Tabacalera Palma, and La Galera Cigars were born. 

If you’re the type that pays attention to the presentation, La Galera Habano does it incredibly well – from the band artwork to the box – it’s a beautiful cigar. And the tobaccos used are just as good. La Galera only uses proprietary, aged tobaccos grown on Jochy’s farms in the Cibao Valley, with the only exception for wrapper leaf. In this case, an Ecuador Habano wrapper is applied atop a Dominican Corojo binder and Piloto Cubano, Criollo 98, and Pelo de Oro long-fillers. It falls in the medium-bodied spectrum but is full on flavor, with heavy notes of pepper, some earth, wood, and a touch of fruity sweetness. These cigars are by no means cheap, but for the quality tobacco and construction, the asking price is more than fair. 

Good news! La Galera Habano has received numerous 91-point ratings. One review noted: "Draped in a dark, toothy wrapper, this cigar starts spicy and leathery but warms to show big notes of vanilla, nuts and tangy wood. A rich, brawny cigar."

bad and great, Happy again.
great cigar, had some problems with them from about March thru October of this year. The cigars at that time were impossible to get a smooth draw on and didn't seem to hold together through out the smoke. I noticed that during this time, there was no ring at the tip of the cigar. Now that I'm receiving smooth draw cigars again, I also noticed that they now have a god ring on the tip. Was I getting "seconds" during the time with no ring? I wonder.

great cigar, but not consistent in draw
Great cigar, love the size, and the taste. Wish they were more consistent at not rolling these too tight. Sometimes my ears pop from trying to draw through these. I love an easy draw on my cigars, thats why I have been buying these every month for a couple of years. Lately I'm getting more and more tight cigars. Come on guys

Great Cigar
I got one of these when I renewed at Cigar Rights, and was pleasantly surprised. Started as a yard gar, but I had to sit down and enjoy it.

An exceptional cigar!
I too tried these cigars on a whim without knowing anything about them. I was absolutely shocked at how wonderful the flavor profile and construction was! These are a staple in my humidor now.

I enjoyed this smoke. The
I enjoyed this smoke. The flavor was better than average and this is a full cigar. The only issue was an inconsistent burn, but only on a few cigars. I will buy more and would recommend you try this brand.

High-Class Cigar at Working Class Price
This is just a really nice, luxurious cigar. They're well made and attractive, with nice packaging. I prefer the traditional Cuban churchill, corona and lancero sizes, but the robustos are great, too. I find the cigar has a flavor that almost reminds me of a butterfinger bar. Pretty full-bodied for a Dominican cigar. A lot of the cigars Tabacalera Oalma produces for other companies are quite expensive, so this cigar is a way to get top shelf quality at mid-shelf prices.
