La Palina Cigars have been a common stock in humidors across the US for many years, praised for immaculate construction and the most refined tastes. Their roots trace back to the late 1800’s with founder Sam Paley, a very successful business man. When Mr. Paley retired in 1926, the production of his cigars did the same only to be revived by his grandson years later. The brand has seen some ups and downs for sure, but it has also claimed some high ratings and a large following along the way. The 93-rated La Palina Classic line is now getting an overhaul, releasing three new blends that provide an experience of elegance and finesse in true La Palina style.
Covered in a chestnut brown Honduran leaf, this medium-bodied release has pristine craftsmanship as you should expect from the brand. The outside is gorgeous indeed, and the inside is brimming with premium long-fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras. You can expect distinct flavors of leather, spice, and coffee throughout the satisfying profile. The brand may have had a shaky beginning, but La Palina Classic Rosado is here to stay with this impeccable blend.
Great news! La Palina Classic Rosado recently received a 90-rating from Cigar Aficionado. Here's what the critics had to say: "Pronounced notes of cedar and minerals become earthier with dark cacao and coffee bean qualities."
