The 2020 version of the La Palina Goldie is arriving in stores.

It’s the ninth Goldie release since 2012, though the cigar is known as the Goldie No. 6. It measures 6 1/2 x 56, the thickest vitola in the line to date, and uses the same blend as past releases. That means an Ecuadorian habano wrapper is placed over an Ecuadorian binder and fillers come from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Some of those Nicaraguan fillers are classified as medio tiempo, a high priming that is only found on some plants. Because the leaves come from the very top of the plant, higher than the ligero priming, that tobacco is considered to be especially potent.

Pricing is set at $23 per cigar and it is limited to 1,000 boxes of 10 cigars.

Every cigar is rolled by Lopez “Chino” Perez at the El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami. Perez has been rolling the Goldie since 2018. Prior to that, the late Maria Sierra rolled the Goldie.
