Founded in the late 1800’s, La Palina had a pretty good run until 1926. That’s when its founder, Bill Paley decided to retire, and in doing so, his cigars disappeared. After several decades, La Palina is once again producing cigars, and it’s safe to say nobody is complaining. Each of the brand’s cigars are well-made with some of the best tobacco money can buy. While La Palina has been wildly successful since it was resurrection, there was something missing. You see, this brand has sourced almost every major growing region for tobacco - except Nicaragua. To remedy that, they recruited master blender AJ Fernandez to help out with its line of Nicaraguan blends
La Palina Nicaragua Connecticut features an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade leaf on the surface with binder and filler tobaccos grown in Nicaragua beneath. The end result - a mellow to medium-bodied cigar with a rich and creamy profile. This is one complex cigar with notes of earth, pepper, and roasted nuts. Precisely what you would expect from a blend coming from two of the most respected names in the business.
