Regarding the release of the 2013 limited edition La Palina Mr. Sam, the Paley’s released this statement:
“Samuel Paley founded La Palina cigars in 1896, and Mr. Sam was the moniker bestowed upon him by the workers in his factory…Samuel Paley and his wife, Goldie, have been once again united, within the La Palina Collection.”
The significance of this comment is the fact that the Beautiful Goldie cigar, a tribute to Sam Paley’s wife, and the Mr. Sam are both made at the famous Titan de Bronze factory, reuniting the couple. Mr. Sam features two black and gold bands featuring a portrait of Goldie and the second says “Mr. Sam”. Lucky for us, the La Palina Mr. Sam is now in full production.
The Mr. Sam Corona is constructed of Nicaraguan fillers and binder, along with a dark Ecuadorian Habano wrapper creating a rich powerful smoke. Pleasant flavors of coffee, black pepper, leather, spice and roasted nuts deliver a medium to full-bodied cigar.
In 2012, Angel’s Envy released a limited edition Cask Strength bourbon. Now an annual release, the bourbon is aged in charred oak casks and then finished in port barrels to reveal extra flavors. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength 2017 Limited Edition bourbon has a combination of aromas such as leather, black tea, charred oak and dried cherries. The palate features more charred barrel oak, spiced almonds, and hints of orange and clove. For cigar pairings, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength 2017’s leather, spice and nuttiness demanded a full-flavored smoke. On a cold winter night the full-bodied woodsy and spicy La Palina Mr. Sam Corona makes an impeccable pairing with the likewise spicey and heady flavors of Angel’s Envy.
