La Palina’s rich history began in the late 1800’s. Their patriarch, Samuel Paley immigrated to Chicago from the Ukraine and immediately found work as a ‘lector’ in a cigar factory. By 1896 Sam had started his own factory with a cigar store nearby. Sam dubbed his factory, Congress Cigar Company and quickly gained the name ‘Mr. Sam’, a moniker given to him by his factory workers. After Sam’s retirement in 1926 the La Palina brand was all but forgotten, but now, Sam’s grandson has reinvented the brand in a big way. This addition to the La Palina line is well on its way to securing permanent residence in humidors across the globe.

Dubbed La Palina Classic, a milk-chocolaty Brazilian-grown Cuban-seed Habano wrapper leaf lays atop an Ecuadorian binder that hugs long-fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua. At an everyday price-point, Classic is one of the best options out there. Featuring refined notes of earth, spice, caramel and a slight meaty nuance, Classic boasts excellent complexity all the way to the nub.  

La Palina Classic received a well-deserved 93 rating noting: “Made with a Brazilian wrapper grown from Havana seed, the cigar is considerably nutty, bright and tangy, with a light chocolate finish.”

La Palina Classic Torpedo
This is a very good cigar. Nothing fancy (no flavors, etc.); a solidly made smoke that delivers a nice tobacco taste.

better than bad
Nice wrap with a consistent body. The burn started out well but ended up pretty uneven after a few drags. the peppery flavor is something I'm still getting used to but it wasn't too strong. Even though it's a medium strength cigar, i ended up a little light headed half way through. the only REAL complaint i have is that it seemed to need a little help to stay lit even with my frequent drags every 30-40 seconds. Its not going to be a regular of mine but its worth a try.

Darn good gar. Perfect construction, feels great in hand. This is how all cigars should be wrapped. Light notes of earth & spice. As stated above great taste that doesn't linger in the mouth afterwards. I will buy again most definitely - Winner !!

pleasant surprise
The first time I chose La Palina Classic Torpedo it was by chance. I did not know the cigar. I liked the way it looked and the way it felt. It appeared carefully crafted and was the size I like, torpedo. Upon lighting it, I was not disappointed. It drew well and burnt evenly down to a half-inch butt, A very pleasing and accommodating smoke. Two thumbs up!
