Miami's Ernesto Padilla has his cigars made in a variety of factories. The Padilla Signature 1932 is a product of the superb (and small) Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras. The cigar is delicious as well as attractive, a gleaming, dark torpedo that is cedary sweet with rich chocolate and leather flavors and a long, lush finish. Padilla is the creative sort, with an interest in serious cigars built for lovers of stronger, more flavorful smokes, and has respect for the standard sizes. This 50-ring gauge is about as big a cigar as he makes. "I want to be synonymous with traditional cigars," says Padilla. The cigar brand is named for the birth year of his father, Cuban poet Heberto Padilla.
