In 1896, Samuel Paley opened his own cigar shop in Chicago after working as a lector in a cigar rolling factory. He created the brand La Palina originally, with a radio show called the “La Palina Hour” out of Philadelphia as his advertising. The brand was retired with Sam, but years later, it is back on the market with William Paley following his family's heritage. La Palina cigars capture the original Paley style — smooth, well-rounded blends that create cigars of true elegance and finesse.
Among the premium La Palina portfolio is a number of 90+ rated cigars including La Palina Classic made with a Brazilian wrapper delivering nutty, bright, and tangy flavors, La Palina Maduro a complex cigar offering notes of marshmallow, chocolate, and sour cherry, and La Palina Mr. Sam an evenly burning cigar providing notes of earth and wood leading to a cedary finish. A strong, up and coming boutique force, La Palina cigars are the perfect addition to your rotation.
