La Palina El Diario

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Ed and I joined Mike, of Mikes Stogies and Stogie411, for a video cigar review. This time around, I tried recording our Skype call, as opposed to splicing together two video feeds. Because of this, the video is a little rough around the edges, but not bad at all. With any luck, in time, I can tweak things for a better end result.


In this video, we pick apart the La Palina El Diario. While it isn’t the most complex of cigars, it is by no means bad. It is clean on the palate, straight forward, and fairly consistent from beginning to end. Perhaps the pickiest of cigar smokers would get bored. As for the three of us, we enjoyed it. We covered all the pros and cons of this smoke.

Ed also talks a bit about his cigar tasting method. Being a tobacconist, Ed has schooled many, including Mike, and myself. In the review, I reference a video I made about this topic. You can check that out by clicking HERE.

Time for some shameless plugging:

Don’t forget to visit Mike’s Stogies, and Stogie 411. Mike’s Stogies is more of a traditional cigar blog. On the other hand, Stogie 411 has taken things up a notch. Aaand finally, if you’re ever in the St. Petersburg, FL area, you owe it to yourself to visit my pal Ed at St. Pete Cigar.


Video run time – 22 minutes.
