La Palina Classic

La Palina delivers with 'classic' value.

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.

OK cigar
OK cigar. Don't really care for the tangy flavor of the wrapper. Would smoke again if given one but won't buy again.

La Palina Classic Robusto
This is a very good cigar for the money. It has a somewhat light colored wrapper, which made it appear less flavorful than it turned out to be. Has a nutty and spicy flavor and has become a regular for me, particularly with my morning coffee.

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 !!

Reluctant Purchase
After the chaos La Palina caused at the 2016 Cigarfest, I was reluctant to support them. But I did find their stick pleasant enough to stand out from the many other sticks I received to warrant a purchase to add to my well stocked humidor.

Mild, just a tad bitter
Mild, just a tad bitter but overall a good smoke. Like the size and when your done it doesn't hang around with ya. So no complaints from the wife either. Thumbs up

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!

I think shipping should be free for orders over a certain value. Think about it: the larger the order the fewer orders there will be, assuming the total value stays the same, saving you cost! This is a fact in my case! Thank you, Kurt
