A forum for cigar lovers.
About two months ago I ordered 10 of the Padilla Series 68 Robustos off the Daily Deal. When they got here I passed them out ot my golf 4-some and we all despised them. I think the general concensous was that they tasted like old moldy socks. Has anyone else had this experience with this line of cigars? Is it just a Daily Deal thing where the cigars are way over stocked and they've been sitting in a warehouse somewhere collecting mold? Or do you think we just got a bad batch? I'd hate to discredit a whole line of cigars based on once experience but the taste was just so revolting it's hard not to.
j0z3r:The '68 is not my favorite Padilla, but I do like it. Haven't gotten that moldy sock taste you speak of. For the most part, I thought it was a solid cigar that is pretty well made, the flavor profile just wasn't right for me.
I don't know what could be responsible for your experience, for the most part this cigar is pretty well accepted. Try the Padilla Miami if you want a damn tasty cigar.
skweekz:It's like the world's most amazing game of Tetris in my humidor.
Lee.mcglynn:One of the b&m's near me is owned by hoe's I always argue with
ScottU:I too ordered 10 of them on the daily deal and placed them in my humidor on 5/5/09... I enjoyed one of them while fishing a while back and thought it was a great smoke. Could you be over-humidified??
brsmith21:Same here, I keep all mine between 61 and 65%. I really like the 68 and haven't had a bad one yet. Did you give them some rest time after receiving them before you handed them out?
