Until recently, the La Palina Goldie cigar was handmade by just one person. A recent expansion of the rolling team has allowed more La Palina Goldie cigars to enter the market for consumers—just in time for the Holidays! This cigar is a master crafted cigar with extraordinary flavor. Named after company founder Sam Paley’s wife, Goldie Drell, there are several elements that make this cigar truly exceptional: its factory of origin, its blend, and its unique size. This super premium and highly sought-after cigar is produced in Miami’s vibrant Little Havana neighborhood. Another reason behind the Goldie’s exclusivity, is that the blend consists of “Medio Tiempo” leaves, which are found in only a very small percentage of tobacco plants. The cigar’s wrapper is then finished in the traditional Cuban style, gracefully adorned with a fan-tailed cap.

The La Palina Goldie screams elegance, filling the palate with a perfect marriage of flavors such as nut, spice, cedar, and earth along with bursts of sweet & creamy nuances. The La Palina Goldie continues to be recognized as a super-premium, extremely limited, extraordinary cigar that is a must try for enthusiasts and collectors who only seek the best of the best! This 6×38 Laguito size is the perfect gift for the cigar aficionado in your life, giving an unbelievable smoke without keeping them in the cold for too long. This is a smooth to medium cigar that comes in boxes of ten.

Need a stocking stuffer? Why not three? The E.P. Carrillo Triumph Cigar Collection is a carefully curated and crafted trio of award-winning cigars. The Triumph includes the three best cigars Ernesto Perez-Carrillo has ever made. They are La Historia E-III, Encore Majestic, and Pledge Prequel. The Pledge Prequel is Cigar Aficionado’s highest ever rated cigar of the year with a 98 rating! La Historia has a bold, flavorful blend, redolent of coffee, wood and earth, even a touch of briny olive. It’s made with Nicaraguan filler tobaccos with an Ecuadoran binder and a dark wrapper leaf grown in the open sunlight of Mexico’s lush San Andrés Valley.

The Encore Majestic bears filler from Nicaragua’s three primary growing regions—Estelí, Condega and Jalapa—and all of it comes together in a robusto of immaculately detailed flavor that ranges from oak and tea to caramel sweetness with tangy citrus pops of candied orange peel. It’s elegant, refined and nuanced from first puff to last. The E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel is a delicious smoke that delivers flavor in bold, zesty parcels of spicy oak, licorice, black cherry and black pepper. Baking spices sing like a holiday chorus, and when you think you’ve tasted all the cigar has to offer, a warm, familiar note of baked apple settles across the palate. These cigars are all medium to full.
