Padilla Forms Venture with Studio Tobac

Posted: April 5, 2011

Padilla Cigars has collaborated with Oliva Cigar Co.’s Studio Tobac for a single-size, limited-edition cigar scheduled for an August release.

“I’ve been very impressed with NUb, Cain, and Studio Tobac’s general ability to bring real, lasting innovation to the premium cigar industry,” said Ernesto Padilla in a press release. For now, the Studio Tobac project is only in conceptual form and Padilla does not expect to be smoking prototypes until April.

So far, however, a few details have been established: It will be a figurado (though the exact shape is undetermined), it will be a Nicaraguan puro, it will be blended as a full-bodied smoke, and only 1,000 boxes of 10 will be produced.

Said Oliva Cigar president José Oliva: “Ernie Padilla approaced the Studio Tobac Executive Board to collaborate on a limited release Nicaraguan Habano. After much deliberation, The Board approved the release of a figurado limited to 10,000 cigars. I’m excited to work with Padilla. I consider him to be one of the pioneers of the full-bodied, Cuban-style cigar.”
