La Palina goes Nicaraguan
La Palina Cigars are a true classic, with roots tracing back to the late 1800’s. They have been a staple in humidors across the country ever since – praised for smooth, well rounded blends that create cigars of true elegance and finesse. In 2016, La Palina hit the ICPCR show locked and loaded with some fantastic new blends and a new logo, proving they are still one of the premier cigar manufacturers in the business. One of the newest releases, La Palina Nicaragua Connecticut, enters the scene filling a void in the brands portfolio.
La Palina has released cigars from almost every major region, but this collaboration with AJ Fernandez is the first from Nicaragua. The Nicaragua Connecticut comes wrapped in an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade leaf – another first for La Palina. The binder and filler tobaccos are both cultivated in the rich soils of Nicaragua. The overall experience is mellow to medium-bodied, boasting rich and creamy flavors with hints of earth, pepper and roasted nuts. We’ve been waiting for a Nicaraguan from La Palina for years now. And Nicaragua Connecticut does not disappoint.
