La Palina Family Series
The La Palina Family Series is a cigar that picks up where an old time brand left off. The original La Palina brand was originally released over a century ago by Ukrainian immigrant Samuel Paley and finally put to rest with his retirement in 1926. In 2010, however, Bill Paley, grandson of Samuel, set out to revive the brand in search of the perfect cigar to enjoy at the Lightbourne House, the Paley family retreat in the Bahamas. After getting in touch and working extensively with the infamous master blender Avelino Lara, who blended the original Cuban Cohibas, the final blend was pinpointed with which to bring La Palina back to life. Handmade in Enrico Garzioli's factory at Graycliff in Nassau, this top-shelf ultra premium cigar consists of Honduran and Nicaraguan ligero fillers, a Costa Rican binder, and either a Costa Rican or Ecuadorian wrapper leaf, depending on the size. The Babe and Pasha are cloaked with a Costa Rican wrapper, while a spicy Ecuadorian is used for the Alison and Little Bill sizes.
