"This was a fantastic smoke! Lots of cream, roasted peanuts then vanilla and cream soda (This flavor mix was incredible, and a nice surprise) then it ended with wood fighting for the # 1 spot. Excellent cigar would gladly smoke again. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)

"The initial pepper was nice, but faded away too quickly. The oak flavor was nice and the transition to some creaminess was enjoyable. The retrohale transitions were nice as well. This is something I could see smoking again, but not something I would chase after." -Aaron (aaron72)

"This was a cigar that was right in my wheelhouse. The look, flavor and performance were just right for me. One note was that I did catch just a little nicotine buzz from this stick...nothing too much, just enough to make it fun! When I find out what this is I'll recommend it to my friends!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
Today, Padilla Cigars announced a new collaboration with AJ Fernandez, Poetica. The project is in honor Ernesto Padilla's father, once a famed Cuban Poet turned political activist who was exiled from Cuba.
This year, we decided to give you a tour of the show through the pictures we took while we were there. Some are of new items, and some are just things we thought were interesting. These manufacturers were not sharing booth space, we just combined them into a single slideshow due to the number of pictures we had from each.
"I really enjoyed this cigar, specifically the way it evolved. It was like a meal, starting with a smoky, peppered steak and ending with a warm cinnamon-dusted butter cake. This could easily become a daily smoke for me depending on price point." -Vance T. (Vance)

“It was full enough to keep me puffing, but mild enough for an adventurous noob to stretch their horizons. I’ve seen one other cigar that looked like this, so maybe I can guess what it is, but I can assure you that I’ll have more of these when the reveal happens!” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
For those that love cigars this is a passion that connects us. This is what the cigar culture is about. Our culture isn’t about billionaire big wigs in big rooms smoking big cigars.
