Dark, rich, and La Palina to the core
La Palina has been producing quality cigars with a passion since they first opened their doors in the late 1800’s. They have released cigars from almost every major tobacco region, providing the most refined tastes and an experience of elegance. Surprisingly enough, they portfolio has never had included a cigar from the rich soils of Nicaragua, until now. Teaming up with master blender AJ Fernandez, the La Palina Nicaragua line is offered in two different wrappers options, both produced in AJ’s esteemed factory in Esteli.
On Nicaragua Oscuro, a deep brown Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper is applied up top, with savory Nicaraguan tobaccos brimming underneath. The profile? Medium-bodied with hints of leather. Dark chocolate and oak join the mix as the cigar progresses. La Palina has been releasing a bevy of exciting new blends over the past year, that’s for sure. And Nicaraguan Oscuro might just be the best of the bunch.
Good news! La Palina Nicaragua Oscuro received a 90-point rating in November 2019. The review noted: "A thick log of a cigar with an open draw and even burn. Notes of cedar, black tea and citrus take on a touch of star anise before the malted chocolate finish."
