Ernesto Padilla is the son of famed Cuban poet Heberto Padilla and his roots in the cigar industry can be traced back generations to the Pinar del Rio region of Cuba. Since beginning his boutique cigar operation, his blends have earned numerous 90+ ratings and his brands are recognized for their Cuban-esque qualities.
Padilla La Pilar marks the return to Tabacalera Aguilar in Honduras, the factory responsible for Padilla Series ’68. This box-pressed beauty comes dressed in an Ecuador Habano Oscuro wrapper hugging a Nicaraguan binder and long leaves from Nicaragua and the Dominican. Expect a well-balanced, medium-bodied cigar with an effortless draw and pleasing aromas. Flavor highlights include pepper, and earth with an enjoyable hint of sweetness on the finish.
