Quick Info
A couple months back I had my first experience with the Padilla with the Dominus and it wasn’t a good one. After chatting with some some local shops they didn’t have too many nice things to say about Padilla bringing up some major changes a couple years ago leading to some major inconsistencies to the point where they won’t even carry the brand. However after chatting with Dave (CigarSage.com) he eased some concerns telling me he wasn’t to fond of the Dominus and to give some of the other Padilla cigars a try. Also I generally am not a fan of the Corojo wrappers but I won’t hold it against this cigar.

I added some picks to the March 30th post as well with Sam rolling some personal label cigars.

So Ben and I are at SoHo Cigars with some cigar manufacturers and an ex-Buccaneer. I am choosing to go with an Esteban Carreras 10 Anos Toro Maduro because someone at another shop had mentioned they are similar to the Padron. Before I even start this review let me say this cigar is nothing like a Padron.
