Padilla Habano Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 stick features a dark cocoa wrapper with a double cap, thick slightly toothy feel, a couple medium veins, prominent seams and a peppery hay aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw putting out minimal smoke with creamy, smooth, slightly sweet wood flavors with medium body. The first third carries the same experience adding a nice pepper and spice on the end of the draw through the finish. The burn is perfect with tight bright white ash and the draw while still snug is producing adequate smoke. The 2nd third transitions a bit dropping the little spice and adding a nice burnt caramel flavor, making it a very syrupy mouthfeel. Draw opened up just a bit drastically improving smoke output. Flavors are medium-full and there is a bit of strength kick but nothing strong. Ending at the hour mark, the last third goes to desert like flavors of a creamy chocolate very quickly shifting to a smooth creamy espresso, carrying the caramel on the finish. Thank you very much to viewer Jérémie Plouffe for sending this in for review!
