Rant- Padilla, the honeymoon is over-Updated!
I have been a fan of Padilla cigars for some time and then they started doing stupid things. They came out with some cheaper and horrible blends IMO, begin to drop some of their better stuff (1932, etc). Recently they rebanded (reblended? not sure) the Cazadores which was a good everyday at work stick. I recently bought a box of these which are selling at great prices and was just horrified with the experience. These things are so green, spongy (first day at Torcedor school maybe?), and burn inexplicably, and just tasted so bad it is unbelievable. This is not what they built their reputation on. I have smoked or given away about half the box but the rest are going to the bottom of the Humi in hopes some miraculous transformation takes place. WTH is going on with Padilla?
