La Palina is a true original, with roots tracing back to the late 1800’s. The brand was founded by a successful business man, Sam Paley, but it seemed to retire just as he did in 1926. Years later it was revived by Paley’s grandson, maintaining the same tradition of excellence that La Palina had been known for since its inception. The 93-rated La Palina Classic line has been given an overhaul, and this time it’s here to stay – introducing three new blends that capture the experience of elegance and finesse in true La Palina Style.
La Palina Classic Connecticut is served up in a golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut Wrapper. This expertly applied leaf and double band up top make for a pleasing appearance. Underneath you will be met with long-filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua – teaming up to create a creamy and smooth draw that is filled with flavors of cedar, leather, and caramel. If your humidor is in need of some mellower tastes, you can’t go wrong with the revival of La Palina Classic Connecticut cigars.

Classic Natural features a Honduran wrapper and blend of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Honduran fillers. Hints of caramel, hazelnut, and spice with earthy undertones excite the palate. We think that these classic tobacco flavors combine to form a masterpiece.
