Ernesto Padilla is widely known for his awesome blends at even awesome-r prices. He doesn’t manufacture on a huge scale, because he likes to keep control over quality and make sure each stick that bears his name is a winner.
Padilla Corojo '99 comes out of the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras, the same factory that produces hits like Alec Bradley Prensado & Tempus, and uses some old school methods from classic Cuba in its construction. Padilla Corojo '99 is rolled entubado and comes dressed in a Corojo '99 wrapper hugging Nicaraguan Aganorsa long-fillers, and is topped off with a triple cap. This blend is medium to full-bodied and includes flavors of hearty spice, pepper, cedar, earth, and leather. It’s not easy to find a cigar of this quality at this price, so I’d hop-to before these disappear.
