La Palina is a storied brand that was started in Chicago in 1896 by Samuel Paley, the same man who launched broadcasting giant CBS. Paley’s cigar company flourished during his career in the industry, but after he retired in 1926, the brand disappeared from the market. Nearly a century later, Paley’s grandson, Bill resurrected the brand as a way to pay homage to his family’s heritage.
La Palina is once again regarded as one of the best cigar brands on the market with a wide array of flavorful blends, including Fuego Verde. Literally translated to green fire, this aptly named cigar may be La Palina’s most unique offering to date. Encased by a green Candela wrapper and filled to the brim with flavorful Nicaraguan long-fillers, Fuego Verde strikes a beautiful balance of sweetness, subtle spices, and complex flavors.
