A 'pillar' in the industry.
Padilla cigars and 90+ ratings go together like mac n’ cheese, like bread n’ butter, like Sonny n’ Cher…err on second thought scratch that last one. You get the picture though, Padilla cigars are good, really good, and at their modest prices they may just be the best bang for the buck going.
Padilla La Pilar hails from Tabacalera Aguilar in Honduras, the factory responsible for Padilla ’68. This gem is sharply box-pressed and features an Ecuadoran Habano Oscuro wrapper atop a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. This tasty morsel is well-balanced, medium-bodied, and offers hints of pepper and earth with some sweet notes on the finish. Pick up a box today, and see for yourself why Padilla cigars have been a best-seller here for over a decade.
Padilla La Pilar has recently earned a 91-rating in Cigar Aficionado. They noted: "This well-made, box-pressed robusto has a rich chocolate color and smokes easily, delivering notes of cedar and cocoa that build to a toasty finish."
