padillaterr1 Today we are mixing the smooth with the bold. We will kick things off with the medium-bodied Padilla La Terraza Robusto Maduro and finish up with the full-bodied Oliva Inferno Robusto.

Padilla La Terraza Robusto Maduro

Padilla released its La Terraza line in spring of 2011. The cigar gets its name from a bar and restaurant located in the famous fishing village of Cojimar, Cuba. La Terraza is where Ernest Hemingway, a friend of Ernesto Padilla’s father, used to keep his boat docked as he enjoyed cigars and liquor. That is an interesting little back story behind the cigar’s name, but let’s get down to business and see what the La Terraza Robusto Maduro has to offer.

The Padilla La Terraza Robusto measures 5 x 54. Other offerings in the La Terraza line include the 6 x 50 Toro Gordo, 6 x 52 Toro, 6 1/4 x 52 Torpedo, and the 7 x 50 Churchill. The cigar is made mostly of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobaccos. The wrapper comes in your choice of Habano or Maduro. For the purpose of this review, we will focus on the Maduro wrapper, which is said to be sweeter. The Habano, on the other hand, is supposedly spicier. Both versions of the La Terraza fall into the medium-bodied category of strength.

Right off the bat, the first thing I notice about the La Terraza Robusto Maduro is its pair of attractive bands. The top band is white and gold in color and displays the Padilla and La Terraza names. The second band is gold, white, and black in color and says Capa Maduro Serie 2010. Both bands look great against the very dark wrapper. It has plenty of oil and is extremely inviting. There are a few medium veins that are visible and the wrapper has a bit of tooth to it. The cigar feels firm to the touch and has no noticeable soft spots. As I give the La Terraza Robusto a whiff, I notice an earthy scent. The cold taste, meanwhile, is of cocoa.

Once in action, the La Terraza Robusto Maduro performs like a quality cigar should. The burn stays even on its own, without the need for any touch-ups from my lighter. The draw is just right and the smoke is quite voluminous. The gray ash is solid and keeps my clothes clean. We are all good in this department.
