La Palina Number Series

At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, La Palina Cigars will introduce the first two installments of its “La Palina Number Series” – appropriately titled LP #1 and LP #2. It’s a line that has a more contemporary look and one that is a radical departure from the classic packaging the brand has used.

The packaging of the cigars was inspired by the late artist Paul Rand, who once designed artwork for the original La Palina brand.

The LP #1 features a Sumatra wrapper over a Costa Rican binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers. It will be offered in a Petit Corona, Robusto, Toro, and Gordo format packaged in 20-count boxes.

The LP #2 features a Costa Rican wrapper over a Honduran binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler. It will also be offered in a Petit Corona, Robusto, Toro, and Gordo format packaged in 20-count boxes.

These are the first La Palina Cigars to use Costa Rican tobacco since the company’s original La Palina Family Series cigars.

Both LP #1 and LP #2 will come from Nestor Plasencia’s El Paraiso factory in Honduras.

The company has also said these two cigars are “just the beginning” of the La Palina Number Series. It has been reported that addition Number Series releases have shown up as Stealth Cigar releases.
