Straight out of the Oliva factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, this new Padilla cigar is hands down, amazing. This stick has a great Nicaraguan filler and binder with an Ecuadorian Habano Cuban seed wrapper. If you've ever had a Padilla in the past, you'll be sure to get the same great quality and flavor you've come to love. If you haven't smoked a Padilla before, this is the cigar to break you into the brand. In a sea of thousands of cigars, this one really stands out as a great one.
The La Reserva line uses a potent filler, which becomes evident when comparing the 60 Nub to the more tame 54 Torpedo. Started off with a blast of pepper which then dialed down a quarter of an inch in, 15 minutes later, revealing more sweet wood in the background and leaving notes of walnuts on the aftertaste. Burned for over an hour and a half.0 0
