LA GALERA 80TH ANNIVERSARY L.E. CIGARS (Box-Pressed)
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.
