LA PALINA MR. SAM Hand rolled in Miami’s Little Havana, this 4¾×54 robusto carries the nickname that factory workers gave to La Palina president Bill Paley’s grandfather, the man who started the family’s original cigar company in 1896. When his grandson Bill returned to his cigar-making roots a few years ago, he called his company La Palina, his grandmother’s nickname. This medium-flavored limited edition of 850 boxes continues the family tradition. ($12) www.lapalinacigars.com
WHITE BLINDING LIGHT Made in Miami, this is the newest and the strongest blend yet from Paul Stulac, and its name reflects the impression many first-time smokers have when they light up the 5×54 robusto or 6×54 torpedo, both of which accentuate the ligero in the blend. This is not a cigar to smoke on an empty stomach. ($12) www.paulstulac.com
