LA GALERA HABANO CIGARS
Jochy Palma for some may be a new name in the cigar biz, but Jochy has been around for some time now and has been making and growing tobacco for decades, and continues to run the family business Tabacalera Palma, that was established in 1936.
Some of the leading brands in the industry utilizes Jochy’s tobaccos grown on his Dominican farms; and some of the finest farms in the Dominican. Brands like La Flor Dominicana, Aging Room are just a few in his long portfolio. Most of what Jochy produced was sold to the European market, that is until now. La Galera is his signature line, and for the first time introduced to the U.S. market.
The La Galera Habano is an authentic Dominican cigar, hand-made by the best rollers of Tabacalera Palma, and it shows the construction is flawless. Blended around an outstandingly flavorful Ecuadorian Habano wrapper with a Dominican grown Corojo binder and filler made up of Piloto Cubano, Criollo 98, and Pelo de Oro from Blanco’s prized Dominican farms. The result is a medium-to-full bodied aromatic blend, a spicy smoke, that deliver rich tobacco flavors that are very well balanced between strength and flavor.
If you like medium to full bodied habano style cigars then this brand is a must try, you will enjoy these smokes, a standout blend for 2016. The Galera Habano comes in a handful of different vitolas, all of which are being sold in boxes of 20 or 21.
