La Palina Cigars will introduce the ninth installment of its annual Goldie series. This one is a large 6 1/2 x 56 called the Laguito No. 6., a size made popular in Cuba. The announcement was first made to Cigar Aficionado.
The Goldie line was created as a tribute to Goldie Drell Paley, the wife of Sam Paley – who founded the La Palina brand back in 1896. It is meant to be a tribute to the accomplishments of women in the cigar industry. Once again, Miami’s El Titan de Bronze factory will handle production. The series was originally rolled by acclaimed Cuban roller, the late Maria Sierra, before she retired in 2017.
Like the other sizes, the blend features an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder over a blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos that incorporates the often scarce high priming medio tiempo leaves.
As in previous years, the La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 6 is packaged in 10-count boxes and production is limited. Pricing is set at $23.00 SRP per cigar.
