La Palina Classic


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.”

Good but a little strong, and some tend to come apart

My daily smoke
Love it

For that smooth smoke when you want to start the day with your coffee and a smoke
It will not overwhelm you. However it is a smooth and satisfying smoke. As someone who prefers the stronger smoke I find this to be a perfect change up in my routine.

Goodness on the cheap
Great everyday cigar. Lots of sweet tobacco flavors with good pepper notes.

Not the Classico but close
A good B line for this brand. Doesn't have the full body and punch of its better class but it sure has enough flavor to remind you of what you can't afford all the time. Burns well, quickly develops and is a good knock around stick if you find them on clearance. Will buy again

Almost Dunhill Aged good
And no wonder since both use a Brazilian Cameroon wrapper. This is a bit stronger and spicier than the Dunhill, and not quite Dunhill smooth. My favorite everyday smoke.

La Palina Lancero
One of the nice features of a lancero or panatela shape is that obeys the 'nice finish' as soon as one lights the cigar. The difficulty of a panatela is getting the right blend into the slender frame. The La Palina does this well, matching a mild, clean-burning, and even smoke with a tasty (very slightly spicy) and cool finish all the way from light-up. Try one and relax to an excellent smoke. You'll be back for more!

Somewhat disappointed in this product given that the description boasts numerous 91, 92 & 93 ratings. Taste is OK but dislike the fact that halfway through the stick it goes out and I have to relight. Does not burn very evenly either. Not likely that I will reorder.

Lancero is fantastic!
Just tried this at a local lounge. Can't speak on the other sizes, but the lancero is fantastic! And for the price??? No wonder C.I. is back ordered. Fingers crossed...

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
