A company that dates back to the late 1800’s, La Palina has a rich history of passion and quality. Originally founded by Samuel Paley, an immigrant from Ukraine, La Palina was named in honor of his wife and the Congress Cigar Company grew from there. Two generations later, Bill Paley has resurrected the brand that still embodies the passion and quality that his grandfather had when it started. Each La Palina cigar is smooth, well-rounded and rolled to perfection. Their selection of blends is phenomenal, making it so any cigar smoker can find a La Palina they love.
The La Palina Illumination is the perfect alternative to the incredibly delicious La Palina Goldie. Rolled with Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, an Ecuadorian binder and Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, the Illumination uses the same tobaccos as the Goldie minus the rare and expensive Medio Tiempo leaf. These cigars are even rolled in the El Titan de Bronze factory in Little Havana, Miami, the exact same factory the beloved Goldie is rolled in.
