Full disclosure, I used to love Padilla Hybrid. I’d fire one up most mornings when I got into the office and pair it with a nice, dark espresso. Needless to say, when I saw these hit our docks again, I rushed to stock up. SPOILER ALERT: They’re still delicious. Hey, knock me for being biased but I’d be hard-pressed to find a cigar this good starting at $1.99 each. The mellow to medium-bodied blend hits all the right spots with rich smooth notes of cedar, almonds, vanilla and hints of spice on the finish. A great morning cigar for an enthusiast who normally enjoys fuller-bodied cigars. Sure, I won’t be firing one of these up on a special occasion but enjoying one every morning makes it feel like every day is a special occasion.
