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.

Note: I did a guest cigar review for the Serie V Maduro Especial 2011 a year back on another website. I noticed that the owner of that site has now removed all references to Cigar Inspector from that review and basically published it as his own. Not a gentleman's move, but unfortunately this happens in the blogosphere. I'm illustrating this redux review with the original pictures so you can see who's the real reviewer.

Anyway, I thought this was an opportunity to revisit this cigar and see how it fares one year later. As a reminder, Oliva releases Oliva Serie V Maduro cigars since 2008 and the 2011 edition was a 6 x 50 toro featuring a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper.

Tatuaje Havana VI is one of the main lines of the brand. It doesn’t get much attention compared to limited editions, but this cigar, produced in Nicaragua by Pepin Garcia on the My Father factory, also deserves a test drive.

I previously wrote a review of the Rocky Patel Private Cellar Toro. In that review I advised readers that I would be sampling the Robusto to see if the size made any difference to the overall experience. Often times, the same blends in different sizes offer unique and subtle flavor differences that make one size preferable over the other even though the same tobacco is used. What I found was what I expected ... the flavor in the Robusto was slightly different. That doesn’t necessarily mean it was better. This cigar, like all of the Private Cellar sizes was rolled at Patel’s Tavicusa factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. How different was this cigar, rolled with the same tobacco and at the same plant as the RP Private Cellar Toro?

Well it’s been awhile since my last post. Does that mean I’ve quit smoking cigars… NO WAY! Sometimes life just gets crazy and too busy, I hope you’ll understand. However, I’m back and have lots of great cigar reviews to post.

The Padrón 3000 Maduro. I have to be honest in saying that this is one of my favorite cigars. I always keep them stocked in my humidor and when I’m running low I just order another box. The Padrón 3000 Series, natural and maduro, are available in boxes of 26, box of 4, and single cigars. It is definitely not the most attractive cigar or the most complex by any means however for me it provides what a cigar should and is the most practical without burning a hole in the wallet. I personally enjoy this cigar at cookouts, barbeques and the occasional Par 3 golf course.
