La Palina is a storied brand of cigars with roots going back to 1896, when Samuel Paley began selling his cigars. The brand became very popular, due in part to La Palina sponsoring radio shows being produced by another brainchild of the Paley family - CBS.
When 'Mr. Sam,' as his employees call him, retired in 1926, that was the end of La Palina, until the brand was revived by another member of the Paley family, Sam's grandson - Bill Paley.
Today's La Palina holds true the brand's reputation for quality and flavor, in fact, you can taste the tradition in each one like La Palina L.E Mr. Sam, La Palina Classic and the rest of the La Palina line.
