The two new sizes of La Palina Blue Label announced earlier this year are now being shipped to cigar retailers.
Originally set to launch in May, the two new formats are a 5 1/2 inch by 50 ring gauge Robusto ($8.99) and a 6 by 60 Gorda ($11.00). Both sizes come in 20-count boxes and join the 6 1/2 by 52 Toro that debuted in 2018 as a one-size exclusive sold only through retail members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America (TAA).
La Palina Blue Label is made up of a Honduran binder, Honduran and Nicaraguan filler and wrapper from Honduras. The cigar is rolled at the El Paraiso factory in Honduras.
