The Oliva Cigar Co. had been handling distribution of Padilla cigars for a couple of years. Then, in 2015 things changed. The contract between the two companies ended, and Padilla was once again in control of its own distribution.
That’s why the 2015 IPCPR was a big deal for Padilla. Three new cigars were launched at the convention: the Padilla San Andres Cigar, the Padilla Criollo, and the Padilla Corojo. All of the cigars feature a low price tag, but high quality.
The maduro Padilla San Andres cigar is exactly what the name describes. The cigar is medium to full-bodied and has a dark San Andres wrapper wrapped around Nicaraguan Aganorsa fillers. Padilla San Andres cigars are all made in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory. The cigars are made by hand, using the entubado technique.
