Padilla La Terraza Robusto Maduro Cigar Review

This 5×52 cigar features a very dark brown lumpy, splotchy wrapper with very slight tooth, a few imperfections, soft spots, double cap and the band is on so tight it’s squeezing it to a slight waist-line. First light reveals a medium bodied earthy smooth tobacco with a big oil slick and thick smoke. The finish is big and long, exceptionally chewy and smooth. The first light mellows a bit to a mild-medium, with a light slightly sweet tobacco, dropping the bit of heavy earth, and lightening up on the smoke output a bit while also shortening the finish. Burn is very good, ash is straight and tight, draw is perfect. 35 minutes in starting the last third, the ash has dropped off in a solid chunk, draw is still great, burn is a tad lop sided but not a problem. Flavors are almost the same, just taking on a deeper tobacco flavor through the draw. Ending at 50 minutes at the nub, there were no changes to the last bit. Thank you very much to viewer Jeff Oda for generously donating this for review!

    Actually, that’s the 5″ Robusto, the only size I’ve bought. Loved the description of the ash falling, lol. Great review.

    Is this a good beginner stick? And thanks JJO for answering my last question.

    • JJO

      No problem on the previous question; it’s just my opinion, after all. :)

      Yes, I think this cigar can be enjoyed by just about anyone, and most of the reviews I have seen have been very positive. They’re very affordable as well. I do think that they can be a bit stronger than what Bryan experienced, but perception is all relative anyway. It’s also available in a Habano wrapper, which I have yet to try.

    got 5 of these in habano churchill coming. Hopefully they will have a little more bite then the maduro. but being a maduro lover this would still be a gem to have in the humidor for the mornings. great review bryan!

    I found this cigar to be one of the regular smokes I have on hand, being that the price point of these are under 70/box It is a great smoke to have resting.

      I believe they’ve been discontinued, so get them while you can. :(
