This May, a new exclusive cigar from La Palina is scheduled to arrive on the shelves of Tobacconists’ Association of America retailers.
At the TAA’s meeting this week, the company announced the La Palina White Label, a 6 x 50 toro vitola that uses a Honduran-grown Connecticut seed wrapper, a binder from Mexico’s San Andrés region, and a filler of Mexican San Andrés-grown tobacco and Dominican piloto cubano. The company calls it a mild blend that still offers flavor and complexity.
It is priced at $10 per cigar, before taxes, with the company producing 1,000 boxes of 20 cigars, a total run of 20,000 cigars. It is being made at the HATSA factory in Danlí, Honduras.
Shortly after this story was published, La Palina clarified the components of the filler, noting the piloto cubano came from the Dominican Republic.
