La Palina Cigars has announced its second blend, and third overall release in the La Palina Collection. This cigar is called the La Palina Collection: Mr. Sam. It was back in April where we noted a teaser on social media by La Palina on a cigar named Mr. Sam. Information on the Mr. Sam was received via press release to Cigar Coop.
The name “Mr Sam” refers to the original founder of La Palina Cigars, Samuel Paley. It was a name given to him by his factory workers.
The La Palina Collection refers to La Palina’s limited production / limited edition cigars. The original
concept behind the La Palina Collection is each year a limited edition cigar will come out in a different
frontmark. The La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No. 2 was a petite lancero released in 2012 and was our Cigar of the Year. A second vitola of the Goldie in a toro was released called the Goldie Laguito No. 5 in 2013. The Mr. Sam marks a new blend in the series and the frontmark selected was a 4 3/4 x 54 robusto.
Like the Goldie cigars, Mr. Sam is being made at El Titan de Bronze in Miami, Florida.
The La Palina Collection – Mr Sam will be unveiled at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.
The blend of the La Palina Collection: Mr. Sam will consist of Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
As noted above, the La Palina Collection: Mr. Sam will be a 4 3/4 x 54 robusto. It will be sold in boxes of 10 with production limited to 850 total boxes.
