Padilla La Terraza CigarPadilla La Terraza cigars are a superb representation of what an economy smoke can be. As with the other previously released line-ups out of this boutique brand, this particular one solidifies their high status in the industry. From the wrapper to the filler, the premium tobaccos utilized are apparent while not affecting the lower price tag. Padilla La Terraza cigars continue to receive extensive compliments and high level ratings ever since their 2011 release.

The origin of these stogies began in a quaint fishing village in Cojimar, Cuba. This location was the site where Ernest Hemingway parked his boat while enjoying the smokes and alcohol a local restaurant had to offer. Being that Hemingway was an acquaintance of Ernesto’s father, this unique blend was named after the historical eatery. While many may question the quality to be received from such an inexpensive stick, their distinctive and meaningful background influence sets the stage for what smokers will experience.

Padilla La Terraza cigars are described as impressive medium bodied smokes all the way through. Created entirely of Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos, the Maduro wrapped variety is available in five gauges. These include the 7 x 48 Churchill, 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 52 Toro, 6 x 60 Toro Grande, and the 6 ¼ x 52 Torpedo. Smoking enthusiasts can acquire each in boxes of twenty at an affordable price.

Focusing on the Robusto in particular, the appearance is said to be exquisite and perfectly assembled. The wrapper is extremely dark in color with no noticeable veins or cracks to report. This shiny exterior sports two complimenting bands for added identification and character. The upper band presents both the brand and line-up names in a white and gold layout. The secondary band is also white and gold, along with black and states the words Capa Maduro Serie 2010.

Right out of the box Padilla La Terraza cigars are said to feel solid in the hand and without any apparent soft spots. The exterior appears slightly oiled and has a natural earthy scent. During the cold pre-light draw it is said to taste of chocolate with hints of peppery spice and dry grass. Once ignited by the lighter of choice, the strength of the flavorings was immediate. As with the cold taste, the chocolate and pepper are noticeable while rounding out the first third with a slightly fresh, yet subtle leathery note. The second third is described as sweet and chocolaty. The rawhide and pepper flavorings remain in the background and an additional hint of wheat is said to come through. Reviewers agree that the last third of the smoke does not let up in regards to flavor and strength. The sugary cocoa taste is said to be at the forefront with a hint of liqueur detected as well. The stogie had a medium strength from start to finish. This stick is said to leave lingering traces of chocolate on the taste buds. Throughout the palatable experience the draw is smooth and even without requiring any touch-ups midway. The ash was a pale gray and remained firm all the way through.

The affordability of Padilla La Terraza cigars has allowed smokers of all levels to relax, light one up, and enjoy. As a result, this smoke continues to receive rave reviews while adding interest into a brand’s fine stogies. From the fishing village in Cuba to their Miami factory today, they have maintained the high quality they strive for as well as their extraordinary status in the industry.
