This small-run, box-pressed release is special from head to toe. Besides the snazzy presentation, each cigar utilizes a rare wrapper leaf, which really adds some simmer to the sauce....and also makes for a highly appealing flavor profile. Coming from the mind of Ernesto Padilla, and hand rolled at Tabacalera Oliva, this limited release cigar brings a lot to the table.
Vintage Reserve starts with a natural reddish-brown Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper (the rare leaf I was talking about before) that imparts a unique, exceptional flavor to the cigar. Inside you'll find a hearty mix of Cuban-seed Corojo filler leaves aged a minimum of 3 years and expertly layered inside a Nicaraguan Habano binder for a complex, captivating blend. Expect rich notes of coffee and molasses to lead the charge as a bevy of subtle undertones also enter the fray. Rich, smooth and balanced, this medium to full-bodied creation is poised to turn some heads real quick like. Production is extremely limited with only 500 boxes of each size set for release.
note: each cigar band and box is individually numbered.
“I cannot believe no one else, customer or staff, has weighed in on this splendid cigar. It is my favorite smoke. Great draw and burn every time. A beautiful cigar with enough flavor to be interesting without too much spice. I can't wait for the new Padilla offerings promised for 2014. The toro and the robusto both provide a pleasurable experience. Paired with a good scotch or a good rum this cigar is hard to beat.”
