If you have yet to familiarize with the La Galera brand, allow me to introduce them. La Galera is the flagship brand being produced at Tabacalera Palma. This is a Jochy Blanco’s factory located in Tamboril Dominican Republic. Jochy is a fourth generation manufacturer and tobacco grower and his families factory was one of the first established in the Dominican Republic. They grow some of the finest tobacco coming out of the DR and their factory produces cigars for many other brands that you’ve probably enjoyed without knowing before. So yeah, they know a thing or two about tobacco.
La Galera Connecticut was created after Jochy had made Connecticut’s blends for many other brands and decided he wanted more out a Connecticut. It employs an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper atop a Domincan Piloto Cubano binder and three different varieties of Dominican long-fillers all grown in the Cibao Valley. It’s mellow to medium in body, but has as great amount of rich flavors. Toasted almonds, cocoa, espresso, and some floral notes round out this satisfying Connecticut.
