There’s a small factory in Miami’s Little Havana section that’s responsible for some fantastic cigars. Called El Titan de Bronze, the operation makes its own brands, but the factory shines brightest when producing third-party cigars. One such cigar is the La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 2, an elegant panetela with a distinctive flagtail cap. Limited production and the cost of U.S. labor means that you’ll be paying a little more for this cigar. According to La Palina, the blend also incorporates some medio tiempo, which are the coveted top two leaves of a tobacco plant that rarely sprout. It all amounts to a peppery, nutty smoke finely detailed with oak, chocolate and a walnut finish.
