When Bill Paley resurrected the La Palina brand which was started by his grandfather, Sam, even he probably wasn't prepared to the enthuiastic reception his cigars have enjoyed. The streak continues with La Palina Red Label.
These golden-brown treats have garnered a 92-rating, and are graced a golden-brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, laid over an Ecuadorian Cuban-seed binder. The long-fillers consist of select tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, and are beautifully constructed in the PDR factory in the Dominican Republic. La Palina Red Label is on the modest side of medium-bodied and has a cedary character with hints of nuts, baking spices, cream and pepper. This is another soon-to-be classic.
