Padilla Cazadores

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

This cigar was sent to me from my pal Mike over at I could swear I tried these a long time ago, but I can’t remember for sure. So this may very well be a first impression review – meaning the cigar I am reviewing is the first one I’ve smoked. As usual, I don’t have a big backstory about this cigar. So with a glass of water, I got to smoking.


Wrapper: Ecuador

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: 5 x 50

Price: Around $5.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper looked nice, with a few small to medium sized veins here and there. The smell of the wrapper and foot was sweet cedar. The cigar had some minor soft spots, but nothing that was of concern. The draw had slight resistance, and the pre-light flavor was cedar and earthy.

The burn required a few good sized corrections, and the ash held for about an inch.

The first third was woody and earthy. Notes of coffee entered the picture shortly after lighting. When passing smoke though the nose, there was a mild peppery spice.

Coffee became more dominant in the second third. Earthiness and woody flavors were mixed in as well. The spice I mentioned before took on a slight sweet note.

The last third kept pace with the previous third. The only difference was the spice picked up in strength slightly, but remained medium. The flavors were the same, but melded together nicely.

This was a good, simple medium bodied cigar for the price. Anything high than five dollars and I’d have to reconsider my opinion. There isn’t really more I can say. This was a simple, decent smoke that meets it’s price point.
