lapalpashpic1The weekend is finally here and we are kicking it off with some new cigar reviews. Today there are two reviews on tap featuring the La Palina The Pasha and the Guillermo Leon Belicoso. Enough of the small talk, let's dig in and see what these two have to offer.

La Palina The Pasha

La Palina is a cigar brand that has been around a very long time. It was founded in the late 1800's and was revived in June of 2010 by Bill Paley, the original founder's grandson. The Pasha, which we will review today, is a part of La Palina's Family Series line. It is said to be very smooth and creamy, which sounds good to me, especially in the morning. The Pasha is rather pricy, so I hope it was worth the purchase. Let's find out......

The La Palina The Pasha measures 7 1/4 x 50. There are also other sizes within the Family Series line: the 4 1/2 x 52 Little Bill, 5 1/4 x 50 Babe, and 6 x 52 Alison. The Pasha has a filler that is a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos. It also has a Costa Rican binder and wrapper. The cigar has a shaggy foot and is considered to be mild to medium-bodied.

Taking a look at the La Palina The Pasha, the most noticeable physical aspect of the cigar is its shaggy foot. The cigar is also quite large. The wrapper has a nice medium brown color and is is a tad rustic with some medium veins running throughout its body. A very artistic band is near the head of the cigar that displays the La Palina logo. The artwork gives the band a nostalgic look and is bordered in gold. Prior to lighting, the cigar has an aroma and cold taste that are both sweet. Also noticeable is that it feels very firm to the touch and appears to be well packed with tobacco.

Once lit, the La Palina The Pasha performs solidly. The burn is even and requires no touch-ups. A solid gray ash is produced and the draw is good too. There's plenty of smoke produced and the cigar stays lit on its own until the very end.

Found the Pasha to be an excellent smoke but also a little pricey. It runs 31.00 in California. I also found it creamy and lite. the flavour is smooth and burns perfectly even. All in all , a great smoke
