La Palina: 1948 Toro Cigars

Product Number: 007-896-0065

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.

La Palina's 1948 cigar celebrates the 75th birthday of company chairman Bill Paley, and features box art depicting how Manhattan, New York, and Estelí, Nicaragua, looked in 1948, as well as an image of Paley when he served in the Vietnam war. Made in Estelí, Nicaragua, at Oliva's Tabolisa factory, the 1948 utilizes an aged sun-grown Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos. It's a medium-bodied smoke that offers a rich, balanced flavor profile.
