altIt’s another Monday here on, and that means it is time for more cigar reviews.  Taking the stage today is the Padilla 1948 Edicion Limitada and the Aging Room Havao.

Padilla 1948 Edicion Limitada

When I review cigars, I often like to start off with some background information on how they were produced, how they got their name, and so on.  For the 1948 Edicion Limitada from Padilla Cigars, this wasn’t exactly possible.  Why?  Because the cigar just doesn’t have a plethora of background info on the net.  I do know that the 1948 Edicion Limitada has been around in a 2009 edition and a 2010 edition.  You could definitely say that it lives up to its translated name of “Limited Edition” because you will be lucky to find one for sale.  Some 2010’s were up for sale on cigar bidding sites at pretty deep discounts, but they seem to be sold out as of right now.  As for how I got my hands on a 2009 edition, you could say I got it the best way possible – for free from a buddy of mine.  He picked his up on the cheap when Cigars International had a sale a while ago, although they supposedly sold for around $8 per single at retail.  Well, enough of the vague intro, let’s get into the actual review.

The Padilla 1948 Edicion Limitada 2009 comes in a Robusto format that measures 5 x 50.  Regarding the cigar’s composition, it is said to have a filler and binder made up of Nicaraguan tobaccos, while the wrapper is Nicaraguan as well, but of the Habano variety.  The all-Nicaraguan composition makes this a puro, which should appeal to fans of tobacco that comes from the fertile Central American nation. 

I’m impressed by the appearance of the 1948 Edicion Limitada, mostly due to its pair of decorative bands that sit near the head.  The top band is rather colorful and features the Padilla seal with the year 1948 stamped just below.  The white, red, and gold colors of this top band stand out nicely.  Just beneath it is a second band that is gold and black in color that displays the Edicion Limitada 2009 label.  As I look at the cigar itself, the wrapper has a medium brown color with an oily sheen.  There are some minor veins that are visible and it seems to be packed well with tobacco.  Before lighting there is an earthy scent to the cigar, while the cold taste is spicy.

The burn of the Padilla 1948 Edicion Limitada is about as good as I could expect.  The draw is nearly perfect and plenty of smoke fills the air.  I only need a couple of very minor touch-ups to correct the burn near the second half of the smoking experience.  The ash is light gray in color and solid.
