Tasting Note
The resurrected La Palina cigar brand has been on the market for only three years, but the brand has delivered several memorable cigars; this is the second year in a row a La Palina has placed on our Top 25. The La Palina Classic Toro comes from the PDR Factory in the Dominican Republic, which continues to impress us with its smokes. Made with a Brazilian wrapper grown from Havana seed, the cigar is considerably nutty, bright and tangy, with a light chocolate finish. The cigar is a bargain, especially among La Palinas, and this La Palina Classic brand is the least expensive cigar line produced by the company.

A predominantly oaky toro with notes of oaked white wine and charred oak staves. There's an underlying sweetness and a mineral aftertaste.

This delicious smoke is full of warming spice flavors and a distinct nuttiness. It’s bright and tangy on the palate, and takes on a light chocolate finish.
