Please take a moment to reflect on how long ago 1936 really was. Much has changed in our world since Tabacalera Palma opened its factory in 1936, yet it remains a place where in many aspects, time has stood still. The same production process defined at its foundation is followed on a daily basis to achieve superior quality and distinction.
The year 1936 marked the start of our journey, and this cigar is a testament to the passion we feel and the exceptional methods that we have sustained throughout our history. La Galera 1936 Box Pressed is a cigar Jochy Blanco envisioned many years ago. After identifying and securing the desired grades and types of tobacco, he has given them the time they’ve demanded to reveal their full potential.
Now available for the first time, a Tabacalera Palma masterpiece encompassed with a collection of the finest and most brilliantly rich tobaccos from our farms in La Canela.
“The Birth of 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.
