Back with a vengeance!
La Palina always delivers in terms of quality, consistency, and flavors that are so good - sometimes I’m tempted to light two cigars at once. The brand was actually founded in 1896, but it went away for a few decades after its founder, Sam Paley, retired in 1926.
El Ano 1896, named for the year the brand was founded, is another example of remarkable craftsmanship. Wrapped in an oily Mexican San Andres wrapper and brimming with long-fillers from the Dominican, this palate-pleaser offers up tons of flavor with notes of espresso, walnuts, leather, and earth. Another premium offering from La Palina — a brand who’s got quality down to a science.
