How good can a $7 cigar really be? Really good, if you’re having one made by Ernesto Padilla. At the 2015 IPCPR, Padilla impressed the cigar community with the Padilla San Andres, the Padilla Criollo and the Padilla Corojo 99 cigar. Each of the cigars stands out for its own reasons, and the Corojo 99 shines with its vintage wrapper and is more full-bodied than the Criollo cigar.
The Padilla Corojo 99 cigar is a medium to full-bodied gem. A Corojo wrapper from the 1999 harvest is paired with Aganorsa long-fillers from Nicaragua. It’s made at the Honduras Raices Cubanas factory. If the factory sounds familiar, you might know of it. The same factory has produced Alec Bradley Tempus cigars.
At the factory, all of the Padilla Corojo 99 cigars are handmade with some traditional Cuban methods. They are made with the entubado method and have triple caps. The construction of the cigar is incredible, and the flavors are bright. There are notes of cedar, leather, spice, and more.
