One of the finest specimens within our Luxury Collection.
Deep-seated in the history of radio advertising, these Clear Havana Perfectos from 1920s were originally created around the turn of the 20th century by Samuel Paley, father of CBS founder William S. Paley. As an advertising medium for promoting the family’s cigar business, William S. Paley sponsored a radio show in Philadelphia called “The La Palina Hour” which boosted the brand to one of America’s highest selling premium cigars and led William down the road to the establishment of the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS).
Manufactured in Philadelphia using a dark brown Colorado Claro wrapper and an exceptional blend of tobaccos from Havana, Cuba, the La Palina Excellentes c.1926 offer a mild, satiating experience packed with both rich flavors and a rich history in early radio broadcasting. This storied brand carries on today within the Paley family and continues to embody the finest aspects of tradition and craftsmanship.
