La Palina Blue Label
La Palina Blue Label cigars run on a core blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Holding these in place is a Nicaraguan binder. Wrapping it all up is a pungent, dark caramel brown Honduran leaf.
Honduran tobacco is primarily used as a binder or filler due to a heavier leaf with a weathered texture. That’s not to say the Honduran leaf never makes its way up top. A number of lines, including La Palina Blue Label cigars, work with expertise, patience, and the right amount of fermentation to get these wrappers right.
The La Palina Blue Label is rolled at Nestor Plasencia’s El Paraiso factory in Danlí, Honduras. The draw is slightly restricted in the best way, and the burn line stays true. The ash has a great-looking salt and pepper shade, and the smoke output is creamy and substantial. Once smoking, you’ll find notes of mint, cinnamon, nuts, and light spice.
Like many La Palina smokes, the Blue Label is robust yet smooth and remains well-balanced. Many smokers claim this one leans more toward the medium side of the scale than full-bodied.
