Padilla cigars are considered a boutique tobacco production company. Boutique refers to a company that offers their product, whatever it may be, on a limited basis. The reasoning behind this is to focus on quality and not so much on quantity. One way that this company has achieved this is through using only the rarest blends of Cuban seed tobaccos in each blend of sticks.
The company turned to the experts in the industry to gain the knowledge that they needed to form the very successful Padilla cigars. In the beginning, their products were produced at other factories. In 2008 Ernesto Padilla opened his own factory in Little Havana.
Some of the lines that have been offered by Padilla cigars are:
• Miami (Padilla Miami 8 & 11)
• Signature 1932
• La Terraza
Of course, Ernesto Padilla also had some special smaller tobacco crops that he wanted to use. Padilla cigars created and offered these very special limited edition smokes: Edición Especial en Cedro, Edición Especial Obsidian and Edición Especial Achilles.
This company earned a high rating on their very first offering and has been going full steam ahead ever since. The owner of the company has been said to be one of the best tobacco blenders in the world. This is a very impressive title.
Ernesto was born in Cuba but was allowed to leave with his mother to come to the United States. He majored in graphic arts while he was in college. He pursued a career in that field which is how he ended up working with tobacco. His entire family had been steeped in tobacco tradition so it was not too hard to understand how he came to be a vital part of this industry.
Now it seems that everyone in the industry has come to know and love Padilla cigars. The reviews are always favorable and highly rated. This is quite a feat in an industry that is so competitive and saturated with makers. However, quality cannot be competed with, and therefore this company easily shines above all of the rest.
As Ernesto continues to realize that the finest tobacco leaves deserve to be carefully constructed into fine smokes, he will continue to make a mark on the industry. Quality tobacco and quality hand rolling techniques from this established company helps to make for some of the best tobacco products on the market today.
As time marches forward and the tobaccos that he is producing continue to become richer and fuller of flavor and complexity, it is not much of a stretch to see that he will continue to rise above all of the competitors in the industry. As he continues to find new blends to mix together along with innovative ways to roll the choice leaves that are hand-picked, there is no doubt that the popularity of the lines, old and new, will continue an upward trend. Quality is a rare gem in a mountain of normalcy, and this company definitely has this down to an art.
