Padilla Series 1968

A classic blend returns.

Padilla 1968 commemorates the year that Ernesto Padilla’s father, Heberto, was jailed for publishing a collection of poetry slamming Fidel Castro. This blend was crafted with care and exhibits the renowned quality and bountiful flavor that has become the hallmark of Padilla cigars.

Hailing from Tabacalera Aguilar in Honduras, this blend features Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo long-fillers tucked under a flavorful Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. Padilla 1968 is full-bodied and wallops your palate with notes including citrus, spice, earth, coffee, and cream. Padilla 1968 manages to perfectly balance its flavors and you’ll be entertained by the rich evolution in its profile. Cigars this good usually hit your wallet hard, but with my redonkulous pricing your wallet will thank you.

Excellent Robusto
I never tried one of these, and I must say an excellent smoke. Perfect burn, and very satisfying, even beyond the first third of the smoke.

HAPPY
The Padilla 1968 is very good...I just like to shake up the flavors of the cigars that I buy and this has it's own distinct flavor so my objective was accomplished..
5 out of 5
Awesome smoke
I picked these on sale and was not disappointed. I ended up going with the 6x60. The draw was nice and smooth and the flavor was on point. If you can find these for around 3 dollars per stick, snatch them up.

Great smoke for the price!
Consistent with every draw! Rich in flavor with a combination of java and nutty to the pallet! Good 2 hour smoke. Will definitely order again!

Padilla 1968
Beautiful wrapper, great even burn, never had to re-light and loved the flavor. In this double toro size, it was an excellent cigar. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase and it was a great price as well.

Padilla 1968 Double Toro
I’m relatively new to smoking cigars and I landed a great deal on a box of 20 of these online. First whole box of cigars I ever bought. I will remember these forever . I’m 6-7 cigars in and superb construction. Great draw. Almost Oily wrapper, which I love. Not overpowering but leaning towards full bodied. Superb smoke.

close to cuban cohiba
very smooth draw and taste was excellent. Close to a real cuban cohiba. Only fault was in the burn on a few from the box had an uneven burn .

Nice medium bodied cigar that smokes smooth throughout. Very affordable, my favorite cigar for the golf course. 3 1/2 stars

Great Value!
On my third box of 20. Well rounded flavor on a medium to full cigar with an excellent value at the current price point.

Definitely give this a try if you like near full bodied cigars with a little bit of spice
Great cigar! Good taste, a little spicy/full but not overpowering. Can definitely smoke during a round of golf. It's got a good steady burn and wrapped nicely. Smooth even burn and draw as well. Glad these were in my samplers. Looking at buying the boutique sampler of these before it runs out!

Very Solid Smoke
A friend of mine gave me one of these to smoke tonight. I thought it was excellent--especially for the price point. I would score it a bit higher on the strength scale, but it wasn't overpowering. Good spiciness, great burn and draw, excellent construction, and subtle complexity. Like I said, for the price it's an excellent smoke. I'm going to order some.

Solid, but not impressive smoke.
Bought a box of Padilla Series '68 robustos as a CI special. It's a med-full bodied cigar that's well constructed, with an easy draw, and nice/consistent burn. Not much flavor change from start to finish...very earthy, woodsy, leathery flavor profile. Nice cigar for the golf course or if you need a smoke in a pinch.

Tough smoke 1st time out
Dug into my first 5-pack of Black Bear Robustos. Nice aromas, but hard to keep lit and keeps canoeing. Great price, but must have the odd plug somewhere.

Very nice medium bodied smoke.

New flavor to me, and good
Really liked these sticks. Pretty cool that the band's have serial numbers. This is the first stick that I get hints of a tangy-sweet flavor, during the smoke, that reminds me of ketchup, but not quite. Really enjoyed all of the 10 I purchased. Will have to get more.

Disappointing
Honestly I was hoping these would be great... As a 93 rated, i was disappointed. So far I have smoke 2 of my 5 and both did not like to stay lit. They have a very easy drag, but when I have to a couple puffs every time just to keep it lit is not what I want.

But a fiver.
Classic corojo flavor. Not very complex. Decent construction.

Tony From NY
Smoked a box of 20. Nice flavor but one of the worse burning cigars that I have ever smoked. Out of 20, I had two that burned properly. Taking extra care when lighting did not help! They burn 50% more down one side. I also smoked the Black Bear and the Golden Bear. Much better burning cigar.

Great smokes right off the truck
Been wanting to try these, finally got em on the Joe Cigar deal. Boy am I glad that I did... I tried one right off the truck, and these are great cigars! Sorta spicy but not too overpowering, great flavor, tons of thick creamy smoke with a fantastic aroma. Well constructed, no burn issues whatsoever. Thanks CI for introducing me to another great line of cigars!

not a 93 but solid
Not a bad cigar. Burned evenly easy to keep going. But for a 93 I expected a way more enjoyable stick. Decent flavor but still just not 93 rated caliber.

Just Right
Series 1968 Robusto is a quality medium smoke that is first class from beginning to end. Although I occasionally get one that has some harsh notes, they are generally well rolled and burn beautifully. They are currently my regular smoke since CI stopped offering Bahia Gold. Too bad about that decision.

They're back!
Wow! I missed these suckers. I'm not sure why they were unavailable for a while, but I'm sure glad they're back. One of my absolute favorites at any price. Get some, you'll love them.

Padilla 1968 review
I loved them. I first tried a 5 pack, liked the smooth medium smoke throughout and easy draw, then immediately bought a 20 bundle for a great price. They don't burn too hot if smoked gently, and taste great. I suggest rolling the babies in your mouth for awhile before even lighting up! If I remember right, they're rated 91 or 92. Let's hope CI keeps gettin 'em by the boatload.

Special treat
I smoked one of these Padilla 1968 series beauties several years ago, and was happy to see its return recently. While I usually favor med-full Nicaraguan blends (see: AJ Fernandez), this Honduran has both flavor and strength comparable to many of the sticks I usually smoke. Consistent flavor and burn throughout, with a lot of earth and creamy like favors. At the price point, it's a can't miss try for the serious cigar smoker.
5 out of 5
From fire up to finish this is a great smoke!
I have become a fan of Padilla and the Serie 68 is just another one of their great sticks, they gave me a new appreciation for cigars!!!

Solid Performer
Very above average cigar with a slightly peppery Corojo flavor. Beautifully constructed and burns perfect for a LONG time.

It's Back
I am glad this 1968 Padilla Series is back. Nice full "Corojo tobacco" flavor and good construction. Nice work on a remember-able cigar and tribute to a great father. Enjoy

Solid Smoke
A good cigar with your classic corojo flavor. Constructed very nicely this stick seems to burn forever and perfectly even.
