With high ratings and an army of adoring fans, it’s safe to say that La Palina’s resurrection has been a roaring success. The brand actually launched in 1826, but after its founder, Sam Paley retired in 1926, La Palina went the way of the dodo. Fast forward a few decades to when Sam’s grandson Bill had the bright idea to relaunch the company. The younger Paley is doing his grandfather proud and releasing line after line of top notch cigars, among them are the new Classic offerings.
The Rosado offering is a classic in the truest sense. It’s wrapped in a reddish-brown Rosado leaf with Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Honduran long-fillers. The flavors are abundant and complex with notes of leather, spice, and coffee. This is a wonderful addition to La Palina’s portfolio, one which you should certainly try.
