La Palina’s contribution to the Tobacconists’ Association of America Exclusive Series is on its way to TAA member stores, as today the company announced the shipping of the La Palina Silver Label.

The La Palina Silver Label features a Honduran habano wrapper, Costa Rican binder, and fillers from Nicaragua, Honduras and Costa Rica. It’s a blend that came about due to requests from retailers for a fuller bodied, stronger blend from the company. La Palina calls Silver Label the fullest blend it has released to date.

It comes in a single, 6 x 52 toro vitola, priced at $9.99 per cigar and offered in 20-count boxes. With the El Paraiso factory in Danlí, Honduras handling production, the company produced just 1,000 boxes for a total of 20,000 cigars to be split up among the nearly 80 TAA members.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
