La Palina releases the second Goldie from the La Palina Collection​: The Goldie Laguito No.5


La Palina releases the second Goldie from the La Palina Collection:

The Goldie Laguito No.5



Goldie Drell Paley, the namesake of La Palina cigars, was the wife of Samuel Paley,

who founded the company in 1896. Bill Paley, Sam’s grandson and current owner,

created The La Palina Collection Goldie to celebrate the history, contributions and

accomplishments of women in the cigar industry. Bill is proud to present the initial

release of the new Goldie in late May, with a second release in August of 2013. The

La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No.5 will be limited to 2500 numbered boxes.


Produced at the El Titan de Bronze factory in the Little Havana neighborhood of

Miami, the Goldie is made under the supervision of owner Sandra Cobas. The La

Palina Goldie Laguito No.5 will be a 5 5/8 x 54 cigar and presented in boxes of 10.


Master roller Maria Sierra, who will have signed each numbered box, rolled the entire

La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No.5 release. Maria was one of the first women

trained to roll cigars in Cuba. Her historic 32 year career at Villa El Laguito began

July 22, 1967. Maria is a 95 rated, category 9 roller trained by Fidel Castro’s personal

roller Eduardo Rivera Irizarri, as well as Avelino Lara, the creator of the legendary

Cohiba blend.


Each cigar is finished in the traditional Laguito style with a fan cap, exclusively taught

to rollers at Villa El Laguito. The Goldie is blended with the prized Medio Tiempo

leaf, found on only 10% of tobacco plants.


The La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No.5 embodies the tradition, expertise and

passion of women in the cigar industry.


Bill Paley and La Palina will debut the La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No.5 at

Nat Sherman International in NYC on May 9, 2013. Maria Sierra will be rolling the

Goldie Laguito No.5 at the event. Please contact Nat Sherman 1-800-MY-CIGAR

regarding attendance. The May release will be limited to 1000 boxes, and distributed

to select accounts across the country. The rest of the release will become available

sometime in August.
