Padilla Rare CigarsPadilla cigars are a very limited and rare line of stogies manufactured using Cuban seeds grown in Nicaragua. Those in the industry understand the exceptional quality of the Cuban-born seed, and when transported for growing to the rich soils of Nicaragua, a legend is born. Gilberto Oliva and master Pepin Garcia are just two of the well-known names that combined talents in the design of this exceptional product.

The Maduro, the Miami, and the Signature 1932 are three popular production lines associated with Padilla cigars. The Maduro is available in three sizes. The Churchill is 7 inches long with a ring gauge of 50; the Torpedo is 6.25 inches long with a ring gauge of 52; and the Robusto is 5 inches long with a ring gauge of 50. The Miami is available in seven sizes. Among those are the Churchill, the Salomon, the Corona, and the Robusto. The Signature 1932 is available in six sizes. Among those are the Toro, the Lancero, and the Corona Gorda.

The Miami is a deliciously smooth and sweet stogie containing a very rich flavor of tobacco. The medium bodied stick is a favorite among aficionados. The flavor blend is an outstanding combination of superior tobaccos. Reviewers have given the Miami one of the highest ratings in the industry. Construction is firm with no evident soft spots, and the oily sheen of the wrapper compliments the filler tobaccos. The price is about $8 per stick or about $200 for a box containing 25 stogies.

The Signature 1932 has been met with positive reviews. The name is significant because it is the birth year of the creator’s father. These stogies are produced in Miami in a Pepin Garcia factory. The Nicaraguan wrapper and binder are combined with an array of filler tobaccos. The 1932 is said to be fruity and crisp on the palate. There is a full spectrum of flavors and strengths from the first third to the final third. The burn is steady without a lot of dropped ash. The smoke is whitish in color and has a leathery fragrance highlighted by the fruit. A single stick generally goes for an average of $14 making it an affordable, superior choice for those wanting to appreciate the finer side of Padilla cigars.

The Maduro is not quite as popular as the Signature 1932 or the Miami, but the average price is around $7, making it an exceptional value for the buck. The filler is a combination of rich, sun ripened tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican. The wrapper is from Mexico and the binder is purely Nicaraguan. The woodsy flavors have a slight hint of black pepper with a bit of spice lingering on the palate. Towards the middle the pepper and spice flavors seem to vanish, leaving behind delightful flavor profiles of nuts and wood. Padilla cigars are better not just because of the unique flavor blends, but also because the construction is strong and firm. This stogie is no different.

Padilla cigars are a favorite with reviewers. Each series provides something unique for the aficionado. What remains consistent is the firm construction without soft spots. Even the firmness of the ash holds true, not dropping unless tapped off by the smoker. The name behind this line stands for excellence, making it a favorite in the industry.
