This brand has a lot of history. It was originally created and founded by Samuel Paley back in the 1800’s. Samuel passed the company along to his son, William Paley, who apparently had no interest in owning a cigar company so the brand disappeared. (Don’t worry about poor William. If his name sounds familiar, that’s because he went into broadcasting and founded a small company that became known as the Columbia Broadcasting System or CBS).
Today, Bill Paley (Samuel’s grandson) has revived the brand and true to the family’s record of success, the cigar has been met with rave reviews.
The La Palina El Diario is a richly flavored medium-bodied smoke exhibiting the sweet characteristics of its Honduran Rosado wrapper and the spicy notes of its Nicaraguan Corojo and Criolo filler. The double binders from Honduras refine and complete the blend creating beautiful balance. This cigar is made at the famous Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras and is beautifully constructed with a rustic, reddish hue and opens into a dense and fully flavored smoke.
