Padilla Miami Oscuro Limitado Robusto

Padilla Miami Oscuro Limitado
This Padilla Miami Oscuro Limitado Robusto came my way via a sampler from Cigars International. It's my first time smoking a Padilla cigar so I'm pretty excited to get at it.

In the picture, the Oscuro wrapper shows up a bit light in color, but the oily, toothy wrapper was pretty dark. It's rolled on with seamless skill and has only fine veins.

Checking the cold aromas, I thought this cigar was pretty unique. To my nose it had the aroma of a well marinated steak. There were no soft spots in the body and the free draw had nuances of sweet fermented tobacco.

Once the cigar was burning it produced a nice volume of medium/full bodied smoke with a leathery aroma and it left behind a firm white ash.

What impressed me most about this cigar was the complex, constantly changing, flavor mix. One puff would be sweet fruit, the next pepper, toast, nuts, leather, coffee or earth. This complexity continued for the entire fifty-five minute burn.

This cigar was a real treat and if you get the chance to smoke one, don't pass it up!
