Padilla Obsidian toro

This great cigar 6 x 54 by Ernesto Padilla is made out of Honduran Corojo and Nicaraguan filler and a beautiful Nicaraguan ligero wrapper. The wrapper has some light veins. The cigar has a barnyard aroma to it.

I could taste coffee and after a few puffs some chocolate on the background. After an inch there is some white pepper instead of chocolate but the coffee remains. The background flavors keep on changing from that point. After reaching the middle of the cigar I could taste cedar wood instead of coffee. The cedar is combined with pepper and chocolate for the grand finale.

The draw is a bit too easy but the smoke is thick and full, and there is plenty of it. The ash is quite dark and the burn is good, pretty straight and the cigar won’t die quickly. Medium bodied and full flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? I just placed an order because I saw them on sale.
