Stop and look at La Palina Red Label.
La Palina is becoming an industry stalwart when it comes to extremely flavorful, well made, boutique cigars. The brand was resurrected by Bill Paley, the grandson of founder Sam Paley, and has quickly become one of the most collected and revered brands in the industry.
Hailing from the Plasencia's El Pariaso Factory in Honduras, La Palina Red Label is dressed in an Ecuadoran Sun-Grown wrapper over rich, well-aged Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. The cigar starts off mellow, with a creamy essence before progressing to a solid medium-body with spice, pepper, and wood making an appearance. La Palina Red Label is enchanting, from its classy appearance to its succulent full flavored medium-bodied profile, and will soon occupy real estate in humidors across the country.
La Palina Red Label received a well-deserved 92-rating noting: "This cigar has a toothy wrapper and burns well. Cedar and nutty intonations of pecan leave a toasty graham cracker finish with a touch of minerality on the palate."
