New La Palina Red Label Coming to IPCPR

La Palina will introduce its new Red Label Collection at the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailer trade show on July 17.

Claiming to be on the lighter side of medium-bodied, the Red Label Collection will consist of an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, Ecuadoran binder and filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

It's slated for four sizes: Gordo, measuring 6 inches by 60 ring gauge; Toro, 6 by 50; Robusto, 5 by 52; and Petit Lancero, 6 by 40. The cigars are being produced at the PDR Cigars factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic, which also produces the La Palina Black and La Palina Classic brands.

The Red Label Collection will be packaged in boxes of 20, and is expected to retail for around $10 per cigar. La Palina plans to begin shipping in late-July, shortly after the show.

In addition to introducing the Red Label Collection at IPCPR, La Palina is also slated to debut two additional sizes of its Family Series Miami: The Babe, a 5 1/4 by 50 Robusto; and The Alison, a 6 by 52 torpedo. The Pasha has already begun to ship.
