Flavor-wise, the Padilla Miami is quite good. It kicks off with a delicious sweet flavor that offers a hint of caramel. Earth and chocolate also come into play in the first third. The second third kicks things up big time with a burst of spiciness. It’s strong, but not harsh. More earth is also detected at this point. The final third is characterized by more powerful spice and some coffee as a changeup. In terms of strength, the Miami Robusto is definitely full-bodied.

When all is said and done, the Padilla Miami Robusto is a quality cigar. It’s not the best I have ever had, but it does have its strong points (no pun intended). If I had to pick words to describe it, they would be full-bodied and full-flavored. I’d recommend it to puro fans or those who want something strong but also flavorful. The Padilla Miami sells for around $9 per single. That’s a hefty price, but you are getting a quality cigar in return. This is for experienced smokers only.

The Padilla Miami Robusto earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Perdomo Exhibicion Sun Grown Churchill

The Exhibicion line is one of the newer releases from Perdomo. Packed with a host of aged tobaccos, this is supposedly another great selection from Perdomo. I’ve tried some of the brand’s offerings in the past and have been impressed, so I am expecting nothing less than an enjoyable smoking experience with this Sun Grown Churchill that I am about to light up.

The Perdomo Exhibicion Sun Grown Churchill measures in at 7 x 54. Perdomo also offers the line in the following sizes: the 5 x 54 Double Robusto, 6 x 54 Toro Grande, and 7 x 54 Torpedo. On the surface, the Exhibicion Sun Grown is a Nicaraguan puro. A closer look reveals a much more complex composition. The filler is a blend of Seco leaves from the Condega region that have been aged four years, Viso leaves from the Jalapa Valley that have been aged five years, and Ligero leaves from the Esteli Valley that have been aged for six years. A Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper complete the composition. It’s worth noting that Perdomo ages the wrapper for six years before subjecting it to 10 months of additional aging in bourbon barrels. Besides the Sun Grown version, the Exhibicion also comes wrapped in Connecticut or Maduro leaves. As far as strength is concerned, the Sun Grown is listed as medium to full-bodied.
