After attending the La Palina Launch Event the other night you knew a review was coming right? The La Palina 1896 is the first of the re-release from La Palina Cigars and the precursor to the yet released La Palina Family Series. The limited edition 1896 comes in at 4.75″ with a 52 ring gauge. Featuring a wrapper from Ecuador, Costa Rican binder and tobacco from Nicaragua and Honduras round out the two country filler.
Since I’m not one to rehash a story, no doubt I’d just botch it, be sure to check out La Palina’s website to learn about the La Palina story and their cigars like the 1896.
Video runs around 11 minutes and I have to say, the La Palina 1896 carries a hefty price tag but if you take the advice I offer in the video, you won’t be disappointed. You really have to treat the 1896 like its a lady. You can’t just jump in and try to fit her into your schedule. You have to be patient, get to know her and then she will reward you. Patience is a hard thing to come by for most of you who are reading this. But when it comes to the La Palina 1896, slow down, take your time, patience truly is a virtue.
