La Palina: El Año 1896 Toro Cigars
Product Number: 007-896-0007
La Palina's history dates to Chicago 1896 when Ukrainian émigré Samuel Paley established Congress Cigar Company and released his debut blend: La Palina, named after his wife. At its height, Congress Cigar Co. rolled one million cigars per day, but the Great Depression doomed the factory, like so many other businesses, and the company folded — lost to time if not for Samuel's grandson Bill Paley, who resurrected the La Palina name in 2010. Committed to the same excellence as his grandfather, Bill Paley revived La Palina as a "personal, signature luxury cigar," and the brand custom-sources tobaccos and partners with renowned factories in Honduras, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and Miami, USA, for a range of distinctive, premium cigars.
Hand-rolled in Honduras at the Plasencia factory, the El Año 1896 cigar honors La Palina's founding date as Congress Cigar Co. in Chicago. It features an Oscuro wrapper from Costa Rica with a binder from the Dominican Republic and fillers from Honduras and the Dominican Republic for notes of earth, coffee, and pepper.
