Quick Smoke: La Palina Classic Corona

6 Oct 2013

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.”


This summer La Palina announced three new sizes to its Classic line, made at Abe Flores’ Dominican factory: Lancero (7 x 38), Corona (5.5 x 42), and Short Robusto (4.5 x 58). I recently got a chance to try the Corona which, like the rest of the line, has a Brazilian Habano wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. It’s a little more full-bodied (medium rather than mild-medium) than I remember the larger ring gauge versions, but with similar roasted coffee, cedar, and cocoa. It’s a perfect cigar for a weekend morning with a cup of coffee and the paper.

Verdict = Buy.
