The story of La Palina Cigars begins in 1896 with Samuel Paley, an American from Chicago, who began the manufacture of his very own line of cigars with the assistance of his friend Sam Winston. Like many American cigar brands of the period, La Palina Cigars closed down. However in 2021, Sam Winston's grandson Bill Winston brought the brand back as a premium luxury brand for an entirely new age and created an even greater reputation for the brand than it previously had during its initial run. There are several different facets that one must take into consideration when contemplating purchasing a box of La Palina Cigars, as these are the same elements that have led to the success of this new luxury brand over the last few years.
One of the most attractive features that La Palina offers is the fact that it uses greenback tobacco. This is a filler that is grown in the humid and warm climates of Latin America. The tobacco is harvested at the height of the cigar plant's development and then allowed to age for up to six months. This aging process allows the sugars from the tobacco to crystallize, creating a rich flavor and aroma. It is the quality of this wrapper that makes the cigars so desirable. Many cigar enthusiasts prefer La Palina because of the wrapper, which is handmade.
The other main attraction with a La Palina cigar is that it can be purchased from an internet point of purchase option. Similar to the retail chain, customers can purchase a box of La Palina Cigars from the company's online store. While not offering the wide selection or variety of traditional brick and mortar stores, the online store offers cigar lovers a larger selection to choose from, while still allowing them the opportunity to purchase their cigars through the internet.
The website provides all of the information one would need to purchase a cigar online. La Palina sells their cigars under several brands including Coruba, Garcia Varedo, Gran Habano, and La Flora. Some of these brands have not been released in the United States but are becoming available. Most of the cigars can be found for purchase at a 20% discount. A customer looking to purchase more than one box should expect to pay more in a traditional brick and mortar store, but will save even more when purchasing online.
Like other top cigar retailers, La Palina also sells its products in gift packs. These gift packs include a blend of three to four different sizes of cigars. They also offer bundles containing three or four different sizes of cigars. While the company does not sell its cigars in bundles, individual packs of each size are available. In addition to the gift pack options, La Palina sells several different sampler packages.
La Palina Cigars has become very popular over the years. The company continues to grow in popularity as it provides its customers with a variety of choices for cigar. La Palina Cigars has a stellar reputation among both cigar enthusiasts and non cigars enthusiast.
