While there were some new cigars from Tabacalera Palma and Jochy Blanco on the show floor this year, only one was to be found in the La Galera/IndianHead booth, and it was a new size for the La Galera Maduro.
The La Galera Maduro line gets its seventh size, a 6 1/4 x 60 gordo named for the piles where tobacco undergoes fermentation on its journey from soil to cigar. The tobacco used for the binder and filler was grown on Tabacalera Palma’s Jacagua and Guarabo farms in the Cibao Valley of the Dominican Republic.

- La Galera Maduro Pilon (6 1/4 x 60) — $7.75 (Box of 21, $162.75)

La Galera Retail Trays
It’s not a new product and it’s not for sale, but you might see changes to how La Galera gets displayed in retail humidors. This new tray gives retailers the opportunity to display a size from each of the four lines side-by-side.
