The master’s masterpiece.
In naming a cigar Dominus, Latin for master, Ernesto Padilla is setting the bar pretty high. Padilla is revered in cigar circles, known for his masterful blending and highly-rated blends. Padilla Dominus may very well be the crowning achievement for the admired cigar master.
Hailing from the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras, a factory responsible for a countless 90+ rated cigars, Padilla Dominus is complex and full-bodied. Adorned with a Nicaraguan Corojo 2006 wrapper hugging choice Nicaraguan long-fillers, this blend boasts nuances of pepper, coffee, chocolate, and earth with a subtly sweet creamy finish. With a rich progression of flavors and spot-on construction, Padilla Dominus will soon be occupying top-shelves of humidors everywhere.
Good news, Padilla Dominus has earned an awesome 92-point rating, noting: "A dark and oily cigar that burns evenly. The draw layers the palate with leather and black cherry notes over a peppery flavor core and sugar-and-spice finish."
