PADILLA DOMINUS DOUBLE ROBUSTO CIGAR
Since its creation, the Padilla brand has continued to earn high ratings, receive top honors, and wow enthusiasts at the same time. The brand was created by brothers Ernesto and Carlos Padilla, who are dedicated to perfection and use what they refer to as “lost or forgotten” old-Cuban traditions in order to create an outstanding premium handmade cigar. To them, attention to detail is paramount, so Ernesto and Carlos personally observe each cigar as it passes through a 5-step, “seed-to-box” process. The name Dominus means master in Latin, which is fitting as this cigar definitely lives up to that title. Handmade at the famed Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras, this beauty has a core of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder which is secured by a gorgeous 2006 Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. Full bodied, this complex smoke will lend notes of black pepper, coffee, chocolate, earth, and a subtle sweetness on the finish. Cigar Aficionado agreed and gave this smoke a 92-rating, noting its excellent construction and razor sharp burn. Enjoy this smoke with a bourbon.
