For many years, José Arnaldo Blanco, known as Jochy Blanco, had been supplying tobacco and manufacturing cigars for a large variety of brands out of Tabacalera Palma, his factory in the Dominican Republic. He had never owned his own brand, however. That all changed in 2015, when Blanco bought a company called Indianhead Cigars and was in the process of producing the first La Galera cigars at the same time; so, La Galera became the brand in the Indianhead portfolio. While La Galera is new in the industry, having launched in late 2015, the brand is the culmination of Blanco’s experience and skill as a cigar maker.
This premium cigar brand pays tribute to the factory itself, as ‘La Galera’ is a reference to the roller’s room in Tabacalera Palma, which is the core of the cigar-making activity in the factory. Alluring and perfect for both the experienced and the novice smoker, La Galera ticks all the boxes when it comes to offering a deliciously relaxing – and just plain enjoyable – smoking experience.
The La Galera Range – Premium Aged Tobacco
Channelling Jochy Blanco’s skill for beautifully blending full smokes, the La Galera range is a testament to the passion and experience that goes into each cigar the brand produces. Bringing together exceptional methods with superior quality and distinguished aromas, La Galera also offers a wide variety of sizes, vitolas and strengths, perfect for all cigar aficionados.
The flavour profiles of La Galera cigars include notes of cocoa, earth, pepper, spice, cedar, vanilla, citrus, and more, so you can expect to find the perfect smoke for you in the brand’s extensive range. By using premium aged tobacco from the Cibao Valley in the Dominican Republic, La Galera’s drive for excellence is as palpable as its texturally rich cigars, which rest wonderfully between your fingers.
