La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 1

La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 1

It turns out there will be two La Palina Goldie releases for 2021. At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, La Palina Cigars announced a second Goldie in the form of a 7 x 38 vitola known as Laguito No. 1.

The La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 1 measures 7 x 38 and has a fan-tail cap. It joins the 6 1/2 x 48 Prominente Size that was announced as a PCA Exclusive early this year. Both sizes are one-time annual limited productions.

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. Each La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 1 comes presented in ten-count boxes. Pricing is set at $23.00 per cigar.
