Bill Paley, son of CBS founder, William S. Paley, grandson of Congress Cigar Co. founder, Samuel Paley has reissued his grandfather's epic cigar, La Palina.
I smoked the Alison last night. Named after the maker's wife, the cigar has either an Ecuadoran or Costa Rican wrapper, a Costa Rican binder and a filler blend from Honduras and Nicaragua.
For a decent sized cigar, the smoke was mild and I'm not tasting it this morning. The wrapper was a bit sweet, flavored with honey possibly and the overall smoke was really nice. I had some issues with the draw and keeping the cigar lit, but that could have easily been the result of poor storage as it was a gift and wasn't properly humidified on arrival.
The incredible heritage and the solid smoking experience of La Palina make this a quintessential cigar.
