Quick Smoke: La Palina El Diario Toro

29 Apr 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

La Palina’s El Diario is the first blend from La Palina that wasn’t made by Graycliff. El Diario, made at the Raices Cubana factory with oversight and blending assistance from Alec Bradley’s Alan Rubin, it’s a full-bodied smoke consisting of Nicaraguan and some Honduran tobacco. Earthy and rich, this well-constructed Toro is a perfect cigar to smoke with Knob Creek Single Barrel. While ultimately I slightly prefer the smaller KB “Kill Bill” size, I can certainly recommend the Toro (6 x 50).

Verdict = Buy.
