Padilla Cigars are something truly special. The company grows tobaccos and builds cigars that are entirely reminiscent of the best stogies to come out of Cuba in the last century. This is the Padilla family history. They are Cubans who left the homeland after imprisonment for criticism of the regime. They love their land and its cigar history. In addition, they have a modern sensibility that comes from younger generations of the family stepping into leadership. They are responsive to the desires of the modern cigar smoker and produce a variety of blends that offer something for everyone. It’s no wonder these cigars have become so successful in less than a decade, carving a niche in a market dominated by companies 15 to 125 years old.
The key to all that follows is the choice to use Cuban seed almost exclusively. It doesn’t hurt the final product that these various seeds are planted and nurtured to succulent maturity in the fertile soils of Condega and also Jalapa, a region that has drawn comparisons to Cuba’s vaunted Pinar Del Rio region. Their Nicaraguan Corojo tobacco is considered to be the finest in the world. Padilla agronomists pursue perfection. Their blend masters pursue perfection. Even their torcedores are in on the obsessive pursuit of perfection. That is the Padillas’ purpose and it shows up in highly rated product lines like Padilla 1932 Cigars that have been given numerous 90 ratings and the Padilla Miami Cigars that hit 92. Rich tobaccos produce cigars that are full of highly touted flavor and tend to be medium to full-strength sticks that you’ll enjoy in every respect. Using mostly Habano wrappers you’ll appreciate the look and feel of these great cigars, and the aroma will keep the torch at bay for some time as you nose them. Padilla Cigars are made in smaller batches to offer optimal control of the process because when you are in pursuit of perfection every detail takes on enormous importance.
