Padilla Dominus

I had a couple of these about a year ago and wasn't really impressed. Now I've really never knew that different size cigars could have such a different flavor profile well I was very wrong. Last night I had a torpedo that Vulchor sent me and man what a difference. It was the firmest tightest cigar I've ever had and the draw was perfect. The pre light arome had a coffe mixed with chocolate scent much like the Miami and this stick had some kick. Very enjoyable stick stayed strong for about half then the ash fell off and it mellowed nicely. I can't quite describe flavors yet but this stick had a lot going for it. The burn was great and it def was a great stick not for the faint of heart but a must try in this size.

    Glad you found a winner brother. And you're right - different sizes of a particular stick can sometimes make a HUGE difference. Thats why I think its good to go with a flight sampler if possible when trying a new cigar. :-)

    I bought a 10 pack of these on a hunch, and I really enjoyed my first one about 2 weeks ago. Nothing really mind blowing, imo, but a very solid stick.

    Going to have to try the robustos I have from last year. On a side, its possible it wasn't just the change in vitola that made the huge difference, it could have been the additional year of rest & age.

    I picked up a 5 pack last fall, and the two I smoked so far were rolled so tight I ended up tossing them an inch or so in. I really haven't had much luck with Padilla in general. I tried to smoke a golden bear over the winter and the wrapper completely unraveled and fell off. That was a first for me.

    One of the guys next door dissected a Padilla 48 EL. It was definitely mixed-filler. Makes you wonder...

    I can't say too much about the other blends but the Miami and Dominus seem to be top noch as well as theHabano but that is blended by AJ. The Dominus toprpedo I had was def rolled tight but the draw was great. As far as consitency I bought two boxs of the Miami last year when there was a bogo sale. All i can say is I loved everyone of them and they all tasted the same. I love strong cigars and besides the Camancho Corojo LTD I've never seen so much dark tobacoo at the foot of the cigar as the Miami def a great stick.

    yeah, I'm in the same boat. I have't had the torp of the dom as of yet though. I do like their burberry or whatever they call it these days, the funky stripped wrapper one.
