Introducing the La Palina Goldie Laguito Especial Lancero. Goldie Drell Paley, the namesake of the brand, was the wife of Sam Paley, who founded La Palina Cigars in 1896. La Palina released the line to celebrate the history, contributions and accomplishments of women in the cigar industry. The Goldie is a limited 1000 box release.
Produced at the El Titan de Bronze factory in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, the Goldie is made under the supervision of owner Sandy Cobas. The entire collection has been rolled by master roller Maria Sierra. Maria is one of the first women trained to roll cigars in Cuba. Her historic 32 year career at Villa El Laguito began July 22, 1967. Maria is a 95 rated, category 9 roller trained by Fidel Castro’s personal roller Eduardo Rivera Irizarri, as well as Avelino Lara, the creator of the legendary Cohiba blend.
Each cigar is finished in the traditional Laguito style with a fan cap, exclusively taught to rollers at Villa El Laguito. ¬The Goldie is blended with the prized Medio Tiempo leaf, found on only 10% of tobacco plants.
