La Galera Cigars
On a warm and sunny day in Tamboril, considered to many as the cigar capital of the world, lying in the outskirts of Santiago, Dominican Republic, lies Jose Arnaldo Blanco, known to all as “Jochy”, puffing calmly on cigar. A man who has worked with tobacco for as long as he can recall and his unconditional love and passion for it is obvious to all. Through hard work and determination, he’s grown and processed tobacco to perfection throughout his tenure as a manufacturer and grower for the last few decades, and his factory Tabacalera Palma has been the home for outstanding cigars that have gained the love and appreciation of smokers all over the world. As he calmly takes a slow draw from his caramel-like colored wrapped cigar, he realizes that everything is exactly the way he wants it. Staring fondly at a painting across his desk, he appreciates rollers in the factory nearly 80 years ago and a smile starts to reflect. In his mind, this is the perfect time to bring to life exactly what he’s looking at. It’s where it all begins, La Galera is where cigars are produced in a factory; it’s where the magic happens. This is when La Galera cigars is born.

When Jochy decided he was going to create a premium line of cigars of his own, he took some of the finest tobaccos he had grown on his La Canela farms and set them aside to age for 7 years. These were Piloto Cubano and Criollo 98 leaves that are used in the filler and another Criollo 98 as the binder. To finish the blend off he applied a smooth Ecuador Habano wrapper on top. The blend is medium to full in body, with a ton of great flavor. Notes of cocoa, pepper, dried fruit, espresso, and earth make for a satisfying complexity. It’s hard to find cigars of this quality in this price range, try out a fiver and I’m sure you’ll be back for a box. 

Good news! La Galera 1936 Box Pressed has received a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting: "There's a pipe-tobacco sweetness to this neatly pressed torpedo, which is balanced by notes of wood and graham cracker, though the finish has a touch of char."
