Padilla Series 1968 Black Bear

A beary good boomstick.

This line extension to Ernesto Padilla’s delectable Series 1968 is a real bear. With a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper coating a robust blend of Cuban seed Nicaraguan long-fillers, this blend kicks up the intensity and flavor with a slow burn that provides a pleasant and relaxing medium to full-bodied experience. You’ll be met with the same flavor profile as the original Series ’68, with additional notes of spice and earth coming from the wrapper. As with all Padilla blends, Black Bear is perfectly constructed, contains an impressive host of flavors, and is available at a price that will have you questioning our math skills.

Padilla’a
I like the Padilla brand very much. These cigars arrived ready to smoke from CI, as they usually do, and they didn’t disappoint, and the price was right. Kinda wish I would’ve bought another box.

Well made and well done
Padilla builds some of the best made cigars. They are firm, draw easy and are always a good smoke. This one is no different. Excellent cigar that I always enjoy with a glass of scotch.

Great deal!
I shopped at a few cigar shops before I found this site and the savings here are incredible. Top quality cigarette for a fraction of the store price.

Great smoke.
I really appreciate the texture, the draw and the outstanding quality of the 1968 Black Bear Robusto with the fine, slow, easy burn of its tasty tobaccos. What better can you ask for?

very good cigars
I buy these cigars for my husband and he has enjoyed them very much. Every time I purchase cigars without knowing what I'm buying cause I don't smoke them 😂. My husband has not been disappointed with any of my choices. Thank you cigars international for having such great cigars

Very pleased.
Great smoke, nice and tight. The flavor is good with either a good IPA or a 15 yr old glenlivet. Would buy again.

Have a good Lighter!
Make sure your lighter is full before you start. Spent a lot of time relighting. Did not burn very well. The center burned, but not the exterior. Not worth the price, even at a low price. Very disappointed.

Great deal
I would say that these are a solid buy. Great burn, no baby sitting, Has a hint of spice in the smoke. I'm enjoying my BOGO. I would buy these again and it great to fill up the humidor. I gave it a three based on the taste, but over its worth the purchase.

Great Value, Full Flavor
Great value on a full flavor cigar, not too complex but good enough to make me buy a box. I will definitely buy them again.

Raised my cigar bar...
A favorite. Amazingly gentle but robustly full flavor from the first puff. Flavors I love are cocoa and light coffee with one of the sweetest smelling wrappers you'll ever enjoy. Great texture; this cigar draws smooth and never goes out. A totally engaging little treat. Love it while it lasts...

Superb medium-full cigar with amazing smelling wrapper. This is one of the best cigars made for the price.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Be prepared to babysit. I spent more time relighting and touching up than i did enjoying the smoke. I decided to cut one open and have a look inside. The description says "long filler", but i have proof to say otherwise. This is a mixed filler cigar! I wish i could add a photo to this review because i couldn't believe my eyes when i cut it open. Little bits everywhere! Not worth the price. Very disappointed with the Padilla name at this point. I feel like I've been cheated!

The Return of An Old Friend
I am always looking for a good deal on a good cigar and the Black Bear delivered. I tried them back a few years ago and thought they were gone for good! But low and behold they're back and I grabbed a box and I was not disappointed. A good stick with no harsh tobacco and a great price. Try them!

Solid Smoke
A firm, well rolled, burnt down to the inch, cigar. Delivered as promised. A little to strong for me, but for those who like lots of flavor, it would be great.

Well made robosto.
Good value cigar for the money. Good construction, even burn and plentiful smoke. Somewhat bitter, especially toward the end.

Black Bear - a winner!
This has become my favorite Padilla product. Perfect construction, draw, flavor, and as its coming from CI, price.

One of the Best New Cigars on The Market
Very well made. Excellent draw. Smooth flavor profile shifting from leather tones to oaky spice with a hint of sweetness on the finish. The next best smoke to a Padron maduro.
5 out of 5
Strong, peppery, robust flavor.
This might be a bit premature as its my first smoke from this box, however, first impressions last. This is a well constructed cigar. Long ash and even burn. True medium/full strength, it's mostly a peppery toasty flavor in the first 1/3rd then 1/2 way through it smooths out. So far so good.

Padilla Serie 1968 Black Bear Torpedo
[A very smooth, creamy, medium bodied stick. Some of my friends had bragged on this cigar, so I ordered some and they were correct. This is one Maduro I will buy again. A stick I look forward to when I go to my humidor

Nice cigar
A little bite at begining, but levels out for a smooth long burn smoke

I've been looking for this one
Finally, a great cigar that I can afford for my regular smoke. This is a smooth smoke from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.

Great Smoke!
AS I age, my cigar needs change, I have gone from the monster cigar to much smaller sizes, however, I still want that big cigar taste, and draw. This little Padilla, really does the job! A corona sized Padilla packs a big flavor, it simply satisfies like a big cigar, so when I have little time to smoke, the mild yet flavorful tast of Padilla delivers.
