Over the past two years, La Palina has released a new Goldie cigar under the La Palina Collection, a special series of limited edition cigars. This year’s edition is dubbed the Laguito Especial, a 7″ x 40 lancero that, as usual, is rolled at the famous El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami, Florida. It requires a high level of expertise to roll a cigar of this size, and La Palina has ensured that their Goldie cigars are of the highest quality, being rolled by arguably the best cigar roller in the world, Maria Sierra. She has rolled every cigar in the Goldie series, consisting of 60,000 cigars in total.

La Palina Goldie Lancero cigar review and pairing



La Palina Goldie Laguito Especial
Though not our personal favorite Goldie cigar (tough to beat the original No. 2), this does rank highly in this paramount series. Few cigars come close to the level of construction and complexity offered in this beautiful cigar for the 2014 season.

    I love this cigar! So much that I picked up a box and a 5er (I never buy boxes). I love the flawless burn, draw, ash, performance, and construction that goes along with the rich/savory flavors. I would say these have the perfect body/strength for my palate, I gave them a toss-up between 94-95 with room for aging potential. Great review btw.

    • Thanks Charlie!
