La Palina Family Series is back and better than before! Created by master cigar maker, Bill Paley, the Family Series Miami blend is manufactured by world renowned El Titan de Bronze Cigar Mfg. in Little Havana, Miami. Since 1995 El Titan de Bronze has been handcrafting Cuban style cigars for the most prominent cigar companies. Along with Family Series Miami, El Titan de Bronze produces La Palina’s Goldie and Mr. Sam lines. Located on the famous “Calle Ocho” (S.W. 8th Street) the factory evokes the tradition and spirit of Cuba. Aromas of Cuban coffee and fine cigar tobacco fill the air. The boutique is open to the public 9am to 5pm Monday through Saturday.
Named for Bill Paley’s mother Barbara “Babe” Paley, the Family Series Miami Babe is a Robusto enclosed in an Ecuadoran Corojo ’98 wrapper with an Ecuadoran Habano binder and Nicaraguan long-fillers. The blend is medium in strength and body boasting flavors of roasted nuts, coffee, and creamy caramel. The Retro-hale delivers a combination of white pepper and cedar. This excellent tasty cigar will never disappoint.
