La Palina’s Silver Label is set to return to stores in the coming weeks, as the company has begun shipping a previously released size alongside a pair of new vitolas.

The line, which is made at the El Paraiso factory in Danlí, Honduras, uses a Honduran wrapper, Costa Rican binder and fillers from Costa Rica, Honduras and Nicaragua. The company says that it’s a blend that came about due to requests from retailers for a fuller bodied, stronger blend. They also bill Silver Label as the fullest blend it has released to date.

It first debuted in July 2019 as limited edition, exclusive line for members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America (TAA), and was released in just a 6 x 52 toro vitola. Now goes regular into regular production and will be available to all retailers in three sizes:

  • La Palina Silver Label Robusto (5 1/2 x 50) — $8.99 (Box of 20, $179.80)
  • La Palina Silver Label Toro (6 1/2 x 52) — $9.99 (Box of 20, $199.80)
  • La Palina Silver Label Gordo (6 x 60) — $11 (Box of 20, $220)

La Palina made the announcement via Cigar Aficionado as part of an exclusivity agreement with the publication. A representative of the company did confirm that the report is accurate.

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.
