Padilla Cigars is one of the most highly regarded cigar brands in a highly competitive market. From being persecuted in Cuba for speaking out against the Castro regime to today, the Padilla family has maintained a strong foothold in the tobacco industry. It wasn’t until 2003 however, when Ernesto and his brother Carlos started producing high quality cigars at discount prices to honor their Cuban and family heritage. Now you can get Padilla premium hand-rolled cigars from Famous Smoke Shop’s massive inventory.
About Padilla Cigars
Padilla cigars claim their roots back to Cuba in 1932 with the birth of Heberto Padilla. Born in Pinar Del Rio, the mecca of cigar tobacco, the elder Padilla became an influential poet and with other family members, a tobacco harvester. At first his writings voiced support for the Castro regime, but that tune changed in the 60s where he started to criticize the poor conditions and terror imposed on the people. His first child, Ernesto, was born in 1972, but by that time Heberto was imprisoned for his radical criticism against Fidel.
With a massive public outcry of support, Fidel bent to the will of the people and released Heberto who subsequently left Cuba in 1980 to live in New York, Washington D.C., Madrid, and finally Princeton, NJ where he continued his literary work. This is where Ernesto Padilla grew up and became a graphic artist. He continued his education at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and the Miami School of Graphic Design, with his work being exhibited in multiple art galleries.
Ernesto eventually went back to his family’s tobacco roots and started working for Tabacalera Perdomo in marketing and product development. This is where he obtained the knowledge that would propel him to stogie stardom, and in 2003 he partnered with his brother Carlos to incorporate the Padilla Cigar Company.
From that moment through today, it’s been nothing but success for the Padilla family. With Ernesto’s marketing and product development background and his brother’s administrative background, they became an unstoppable duo, creating wildly popular cigars such as the Padilla Reserva, Miami Maduro, Padilla and highly rated Padilla Crianza. Even with all these fantastic lines which have become staples in stogie lover’s humidors worldwide, they constantly push themselves to make new and exciting blends that continue to outdo the last release.
