LA GALERA MADURO 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.
What separates La Galera cigars from others is the extensive reserves of tobacco to which master blender Jochy Blanco can work with to deliver outstand and diverse blends. These tobacco reserves largely consist of tobacco grown by Jochy on his prized farms. Another significant portion of this reserved tobacco comes from the fact that the Blanco family has been in business since 1936, which allows him to scour the world’s best farms to secure lots that have the potential to be something special. By not constraining themselves with respect to country of origin in their blends, Jochy can focus solely on crafting blends that deliver only the most exceptional qualities for your enjoyment.
The La Galera Maduro is a testament to his focus and patience; creating diverse and unique blends from his archive of reserve tobaccos. The Galera Maduro’s are comprised of a rich, dark San Andres maduro wrapper, with delicious Piloto Cubano and Crillo 98 tobacco from Tabacerla Palma’s Jacagua and Gurabo farms. With a balance of tobacco that gently layers the smoker’s palate with intense yet smooth flavors, La Galera Maduro is what a maduro cigar aspires to be.
If you like medium to full bodied San Andreas maduro 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.
