Padilla cigars are a longtime fan favorite due in part to their richness of flavor and wallet friendly prices. Padilla takes time to craft his cigars and pays an extraordinary amount of attention to their construction and blending to ensure each cigar that carries his name is first-rate.
Padilla Criollo 98, crafted at the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras, is rolled entubado, and features a Honduran Criollo ’98 wrapper. The blend is finished with Nicaraguan Aganorsa long-fillers, and exudes nuances including cedar, black pepper, spice, espresso, and cream. The stick is overall medium-bodied and well-balanced, and you won’t find better prices on a cigar of this quality. I’d recommend picking some up pronto to make sure you don’t miss out on this gem.
