Padilla Limitado 2006

A few notes before you watch the video. When I was recording the video I was at a loss. I didn’t know anything about the cigar because when I was searching for information I was searching for “Padilla Limitado” when I should’ve been looking for “Padilla Obsidian”. Since then I have discovered that it has a Honduran-grown Corojo and black Nicaraguan-grown fillers and a Nicaraguan ligero wrapper. These are a yearly release by Padilla. The 2007 release is called the Padilla Achilles and is blended by Don Pepin. These yearly releases are Cigars International exclusives.

Video runs around 15 minutes. On a personal note, most of you might know my dad spent 30 years in the United States Air Force and served 3 tours of duty in Vietnam rescuing downed pilots so days like Veterans Day or Memorial Day are special days in my family because of my dad’s service and the friends he lost in Vietnam. Do me a favor this Memorial Day. Regardless of how you feel about the current state of affairs, while you’re out on the patio, grilling and smoking a cigar, take a moment and keep Veterans like my dad and the brave soldiers who didn’t come back or are yet to be accounted for, take a moment to remember.

Special thanks to Jabba & Zee for their hospitality while I was in Toronto!

  1. Jerry,

    Thanks for the mention… It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope we can all get together again in the future. It’s a shame that our governments are trying to ban smoking everywhere because this hobby truly brings together great individuals and in my humble opinion… this is what life is all about, great people, great times and long ashes!

  2. Nice review, Jerry!
    And the site is looking good as well.
    p.s who is that walking in that picture?

  3. Oh I see. Well my opinion the theme with the person on top looks better, and it kinda looks like it could be, Walt.

  4. Jabba – Hey man it was a great time. I wish I could tell Mike’s story the way he did! I knew I should’ve popped out the camera before he started telling that story.

    You’re exactly right about life. It was awesome hanging out with the two of you talking about everything under the sun.

  5. Hey Jerry…another entertaining review as always.

    I’m actually liking this new layout/theme. I like the clean lines feel to it and the user rating system is really cool too. Is there a way you can display the Top Rated reviews somewhere on one of the sidebars?

    Also I notice you smoked a CI Legends in Episode 10. Any chance we will get a review of that soon?

  6. Great video Jerry. Thanks for sharing all the valuable information on the contraband Cuban cigars. It would have been interesting indeed to compare the Cuban Montecristo with the DR Montecristo. I imagine they are both good but different heh.

    I haven’t tried the 2006 Padilla but the 2007 is fantastic. Better then the Pepin Blue in my opinion.

    Dave
