This is the strongest La Palina blend to date, a feat that’s achieved while retaining an exceptional balance that never overpowers. With superb construction and a blend of rich, complex flavors, this handmade satisfies the palate with ease.
The La Palina brand started back in 1896 by Sam Paley, the same man responsible for the CBS broadcasting company. The brand flourished under his care before being retired in 1926. It has since been revived by Bill Paley, and enthusiasts agree that it’s never looked better. With a tradition for excellence and an eye for quality, Paley has led the second rendition of La Palina down the road of success.
La Palina Black Label has charm to spare. The first thing you’ll notice is the ultra dark, slightly rustic looking Brazilian wrapper. This sturdy leaf encircles a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers, along with a double binder combination from the Dominican and Nicaragua. This medley of carefully chosen tobaccos delivers notes of earth, leather, and cocoa, with hints of sweetness and fruit present. The strength builds gradually as you progress through the experience. With a solid construction and perfect burn, Black Label is another sure winner in the La Palina portfolio.
