Padilla Series ’68 Lancero Cigar Review

This 7.5×42 stick features a dark brown firm toothy wrapper with a slight red hue, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a tiny pigtail cap and sweet candy aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good smoke output showing flavors of a smooth creamy texture and taste with an aged musty slightly bitter tobacco with a very slick cool finish. The first third morphs the bitterness in to a sweetness, continuing the core flavors of the musty aged tobacco, bringing body to a medium-full. 30 minutes in the 2nd third is winding down, going to a sweet cinnamon flavor with the tobacco, adding a zing through the long finish. Ending at the hour mark, the last third drops the sweetness for a deeper earth and adds quite a strength buzz, matching the medium-full body. Thank you very much to viewer Justin Hodges for sending this in for review!

    I believe the serie 68 is one of the cigars Padilla discontinued. This makes me a sad panda. I only have 9 robustos of this left.

    Hey Bryan! Hope you had a good winter holiday and new years. What would be your cigar of 2012? If you cannot decide, what would be your top 3?

    All the Best

    Lol The Padilla website seems to have been “under construction” for well over a year (maybe even two or more) now. The ’68 has been discontinued and apparently was listed as a 38RG, but Mike at mikesstogies.com also thought it was at least a 40-42RG. Sad to see the ’68 and 1932 go.

    Hey Bryan, I’m glad you didn’t think it was a dog rocket. I quite like them and am disappointed they are discontinued as Sirfubes reports above. The box I got online was quite inexpensive at the time, one to two years ago…..about $2.50 apiece IIRC.
