TASTING NOTES:
Padilla Cigars have made quite the splash in the U.S. market since their debut in 2004. The cigars, which come in several varieties, are made in three countries: the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and the United States. The latter is the most highly regarded. The Padilla Signature 1932, like the Padilla Miami 8&11, is made in the United States by Pepin Garcia, the owner of the boutique factory Rey de los Habanos. The factory has only a dozen rollers, and it also makes Tatuajes and other brands, so production on the 1932 and the Miami 8&11 is considerably small. The 1932 is stronger than the Miami 8&11 and has heavy mineral notes and plenty of wood. The Churchill, which measures 7 inches long by 48 ring gauge, is a powerhouse smoke that’s not for the meek.

PRICE: $13.50
