You don't have to sing the blues no mo'!
There's not a single chance anyone reading this would remember tuning in to the "La Palina Hour", since it ran over a century ago. The host was Samuel Paley, the head of a small cigar factory called Congress Cigar Company, and he named it after his flagship cigar line, La Palina. This was a very long time ago, but La Palina stands today as one of the most delicious & consistent cigar brands on the market. The La Palina stable holds many fine blends, and today we're welcoming yet another addition to their myriad of great options: La Palina Blue Label.
The Blue Label was originally offered in just one 6.5" x 52 toro size to a small number of retailers, but now two new sizes have been added and they're ready to fill your humidor. The gorgeous medium-brown Habano wrapper was grown in Honduras, and conceals a Habano binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. Sound good? It tastes even better. The medium-full bodied flavor profile is a touch spicy, with cedar, earth, and leather notes balanced out by a nice creaminess. It's strong but balanced, spicy but smooth, and the perfect blend to wear the newest La Palina band.
