At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Jochy Blanco’s IndianHead Cigars announced a new regular-production Cameroon-wrapped offering under its La Galera brand known as the La Galera Imperial Jade.
The La Galera Imperial Jade features a genuine African Cameroon wrapper over a Dominican Criollo binder grown on Blanco’s Jacagua farm. The fillers include Dominican Piloto Cubano from the Jacagua farm and Criollo ’98 from La Canela, the farm co-owned by Blanco and Litto Gomez. Production is handled at Blanco’s Tabacalera Palma.
