The company will release “Bill’s Blend”, a cigar that uses a private blend for company owner Bill Paley. Information on La Palina Bill’s Blend was first disclosed to Cigar Aficionado last week.

The blend features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, an Ecuadorian binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaraguan. Bill’s Blend will come in one size – a 6 x 50 Toro.
