La Palina over the weekend announced that the limited-edition Bronze Label begins shipping to TAA retailers today. The cigar was blended through a collaborative effort with Rocky Patel and is only available to members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America, a retailer organization that represents American brick-and-mortar tobacconists.
“This cigar was good in my opinion. It was nothing over the top and it was not yard bound after the first third. There were nice subtle flavors that a lot of smokers will enjoy. Again, not my cup of tea, but a good smoke nevertheless. Enjoy if you can and expect a nice lighter stick.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
La Palina will introduce its new Red Label Collection at the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailer trade show on July 17.
“This is a good cigar, no doubt about it. A rich and flavorful cigar that would be great for after dessert. A smoke bomb that has good complexity and flavor changes.” -Jack (Jack_H)
“Overall the cigar was a pleasant smoke. The initial and final thirds were not up to mark, but the middle third was excellent with several changes in flavors and with perfect burn and draw. I will definitely try this one again to see if some time in the humi might get rid of the harshness in the very final third of the cigar.” -Sandeep (Djangos)
