Second verse, same as the first.
Sometimes a cigar is so good that it makes a surprise reappearance at a later date in time, which is precisely what happened with Padilla Miami 8 & 11. The original version came out in 2005, and now it’s back for a limited time, in limited quantities, so it’s best to get yours while you can. This spicy and creamy handmade was blended more to showcase flavor than it was for strength, and it delivers a nice, palatable, medium-bodied profile. It was named for the place in which it was rolled – in the famed Calle Ocho in Miami, on the corner of 8th Street and 11th Avenue. With an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper concealing a Nicaraguan binder and a fine mix of Nicaraguan filler leaves, this is one reprise that makes perfect sense.
Padilla Miami 8 & 11 received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#22 overall) and a 92-rating noting: "We found them to have a light cocoa quality along with notes of candied fruit and oak."
