Padilla Serie 1968 Black Bear
The Padilla Serie 1968 Black Bear cigar is a beautiful addition to the line celebrating Padilla’s year of making his mark on history. The first installment of the series was a Nicaraguan puro that offered a reasonably classic profile. After that, two Connecticut wrapper versions were created. The Golden Bear is a Connecticut shade cigar, while this Black Bear uses a Connecticut broadleaf Maduro to bring a new flavor to the mix. The gentle Nicaraguan spice is there, but earth and nuttiness make this a smokable blend.
That may be one of the most surprising things about the Padilla Serie 1968 Black Bear cigar. There are a lot of folks out there who are quietly making this a big seller. It’s a go-to for a growing number of cigar smokers who have their choice of so many blends. Honestly, we’re spoiled for options. But there’s a bunch of people out there who would happily smoke this Maduro over anything else when it comes to a regular stogie.
The spirit of Heberto Padilla is definitely alive in the Black Bear. It’s reliable and unshakable, just like he was.
