(Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. This smoke is really good.)
Oops – did we put that on the Internet? Ah well, how many people could there be on the Internet, anyway? Like a few hundred? Not important. Anyway, on to the smoke.
The La Palina No. 1 is an under rated cigar that is currently being overlooked by the hype masters. It doesn’t have a ton of accolades piling up, but maybe that will change in the coming years. For now, this one can be our little secret.
It features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a Costa Rican binder, and Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers in the interior blend. It’s a multinational tobacco collaboration that delivers medium body and really fine flavors including leather, licorice, and a long, creamy finish. (Get your minds out of the gutter. C’mon now.)
The cigars are rolled up at the El Paraiso factory in Honduras, which is owned by Nestor Plasencia. You may know Plasencia from the company’s little-known role as the planet’s largest friggin’ tobacco grower! Seriously, no one grows more leaf than Plasencia, and they’ve been at it for generations. They’re pretty good at it. Plasencia also has earned recent accolades for their own blends. The Alma Fuerte was the #9 cigar of 2017. The La Palina No. 1 cigars are in great hands.
More importantly, they should be in your hands! Reading about cigars is fun, we guess, but smoking cigars is where it’s at. We’ll stop writing so you can get down to business.
