Ernesto Padilla’s cigar line, after the revamp, consists of Reserva, Reserva Maduro, Miami 8 & 11, Miami Maduro, Vintage Reserve and Connecticut. The cigar that is being reviewed, however, is one of the old Miami lines. I believe that this one was still manufactured in Miami USA but I might be wrong. Needless to say, it has some age on it.

Padilla Miami Lancero #2

The pre-light experience for my Padilla Miami Lancero was very pleasing. The wrapper was golden brown, carrying veins with an oily sheen. I found a small crack in the wrapper leaf near the top of the cigar. The wonderful triple seam, pigtail cap was pleasing to the eye and the band was odd shaped with black, red, and gold lettering. Pre-light smell showed light white pepper and cream. The cold draw tickled my palate with notes of sweet fruit and showed perfect resistance.

Pre-light Score: 9 pts.

Padilla Miami Lancero #3

The first 1/3 of my Padilla Miami Lancero was nice and creamy with signs of toasted nuts. This cigar produced loads and loads of smoke from the smallest draw, however the burn was a little uneven. The ash was a wonderful snow white and the cigar seemed to be burning rather fast.

The second third of the cigar showed woody signs paired with black cherry. The transition of the flavors was amazing offering my palate just what it needed at that moment. This cigar had lots of complexity and character and before beginning the last third, tastes of cedar and spice were pleasantly noted. The burn, however, remained uneven and wavy.

Smoking Score: 8 pts.

Padilla Miami Lancero #5

On the last third the taste turned very spicy, bold, and tart on the palate. Also, the wrapper started to unravel, which is kind of a bummer, considering how great this cigar had been thus far. My final thoughts of the Padilla Miami prove it to be a very nice lancero with lots of complexity and flavor. This cigar did burn faster than normal however every puff was enjoyable.

Overall Experience: 8 pts.

  1. The blocky print on the label indicates that it is a Pepin rolled stick. The Raices Cubanas iteration had a different font that was in cursive.
