The latest from Ernesto Padilla.
Handmade in Honduras at the heralded Raices Cubanas factory, Padilla Artemis marks the first box-pressed offering in the Padilla portfolio. Crafted with dark, reddish-brown Cuban-seed Nicaraguan wrapper leaf and a rich blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers, Artemis delivers a smooth, Cuban-esque profile. Hearty, traditional tobacco notes are backed by a hint of cedar, coffee, earth, and a sweet, peppery finish. Delicious, and very well-balanced, Artemis is another feather in the now overloaded Padilla cap.
A Padilla write-up just seems odd without it, so I'll just reserve the space now: Insert imminent 90+ rating here.
