In like a lion
I don’t need to tell you how good Padilla is at crafting cigars. At this point in the game, they’ve established themselves as a major player, capable of handmaking numerous 90+ rated blends. With the Padilla Single Batch Perfecto, they’ve stepped their game up to another level, and created a delicious cigar that is worthy of everyday enjoyment.
From the moment these samples landed in our office, I knew they’d done it again. What we’ve got here is a rich Ecuador Sumatra wrapper seamlessly wrapped over a Honduran binder with a five-country mixture of long-fillers. The bouquet of leather and earth off of these was unreal, and I grabbed the closest lighter at hand to dig into these perfectos. Upon lighting, boom. I found notes of pepper, leather, coffee, earth, all balanced in a medium-bodied profile that makes these great for any time of day.
And we haven’t even touched on the price — cigars of this quality normally cost an arm and a leg, but we cranked our wheelin’ and dealin’ skills to the max. My recommendation — stock up, fast. Cuz with these single batches in your stash, it’s always cigar season.
