Padilla Miami Toro Cigar Review

Padilla Miami Toro Cigar Review

This 6×50 stick features a soft dark tan wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, double cap, slight spongy give and tangy manure aroma. First light reveals a loose draw putting out medium-full body flavors of a zingy aged tobacco with a bit of a bite and oily bitterness. Smoke output is excellent with a long thick mouthfeel and finish. The first third develops to almost candy like flavors, producing copious amounts of smoke with sweet and creamy tastes. The finish is the same, but very short and clean. It’s a very light overall experience – no earth, pepper or anything like that but flavors are bold on the draw. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point it’s much the same as the first third, shifting the general sweetness to a light caramel and also adding a nice light leather to the end of the draw and finish. Ending at 1:15 the last third shifted slightly to a heavier taste of creamy earth and a very warm in your chest finish. 10 minutes after finishing the video I did get quite a strength rush that made me a bit sick. Thank you very much to viewer Chaz from Long Island for donating this for review!

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard the phrase “tangy manure aroma” until just now, and I grew up on a dairy farm where lots of manure is produced!!! :)

    This reminds me I need to get some more of these in stock- been awhile since I’ve had one! Sorry to make you sick :( Great review as always.

    Haha… Interesting choice of music. I was almost expecting you to do some magic trick or acrobatics. :)

    I had one of these recently and really enjoyed it. In fact, I’ve dug all the Padilla’s that I’ve had.

    One of my favorite sticks. Love the Polka music!

    this cigar starts out dry, creeps into wonderful transitions of leather, spice and coco.. the toro did make me quite light headed and a bit sick at the end. I would recommend a full meal prior to this beauty..

      Ok, in an effort to be objective.. Not stacking comments for the purpose of advancement in “members comments for points” I decided to dig out a robusto stick I have had in the Humidor for about a year.

      I found this stick very creamy, oily tobacco taste with a perfect draw and long finish. The flavors continued to be a leather and aged tobacco.. however I did fine the sweetness of the stick be over taken by the strengh in the last third.. I decided to terminate the smoke at 40 minutes in.. in an effort to not get sick again.. I guess I am truly a light weight.. great flavors for a full stength lover.

    This is one of my favorite sticks! Good review, I also get the pepper and the desert flavors you describe in your review. Such a shame that Padilla isn’t makin these anymore, happy I still have a few in my humidor. Has anyone tried the maduro of this, I’ve though of gettin some but they’re so pricy I would like to hear what they’relike before I pay for them.
