Flashback to yesteryear — big bands are playing, and everyone’s carrying around skinny, green cigars. Ah, the Candela wrapper. Once the most popular wrapper leaf in America, Candela has gone on to become something of a rarity. Luckily, La Palina has an eye for the past, and is looking to apply some contemporary cigar making knowledge to the classic leaf. Enter La Palina Fuego Verde.
Undeniably one of La Palinas most unique offerings to date, Fuego Verde uses the green tinted Candela wrapper to bring a complex Caribbean essence to this mellow-bodied cigar. Luscious Nicaraguan long-fillers and a Honduran binder keep the flavor profile interesting. From first puff down to the nub, you can expect a balance of sweetness and subtle spices. If you’ve never tried a Candela wrapped cigar before, you won’t get a better introduction than this. Smooth, refined, and entirely unique, Fuego Verde has all the qualities you’d expect from the La Palina name.
