We're pleased to bring you another limited edition, the small-batch Padilla Achilles. Made in the factory of Don "Pepin" Garcia in 2006, only 60,000 were produced. Members are likely familiar with Don "Pepin," the maker of Tatuaje and other Padilla lines, including the Padilla Miami and Padilla 1932. You’ll note the unusual shape. In addition to the pointed head and stubbier pointed foot, it’s fatter on the bottom—chock full of Cuban-seed tobaccos from the fertile soils of Nicaragua. With its café-colored Corojo wrapper, Padilla Achilles is a full-bodied cigar. The choice, dark brown leaf is smooth as silk and super leathery in appearance. The smoke is characterized by a burst of creamy flavors, followed by more intense cedary flavors. A spicy aftertaste—with just a hint of pepper—mellows halfway through when sweet cedar coats the palate, draw after draw. Try with an oak-heavy XO cognac.
