Padilla Dominus – Cigar Review

Padilla Dominus Robusto Review

There has been some debate over my review of another Padilla cigar, so I decided I needed a  new Padilla review!

The wrapper is milk chocolate colored with a few medium sized veins showing.

It is very firm feeling with a couple of hard spots here and there.  I chose to punch it, and the draw was too tight.  I then used a cutter and the draw was much better, but still seemed tight.

It has a very pungent and earthy smell with just a hint of sweetness in there.

After lighting it up I was very happy to find that the draw was perfectly fine once the cigar got burning.  It had bold pepper and hazelnut coffee flavors with a lingering semi-sweet spicy finish.  The brown tinted ash held on tight and the burn line was very even.

The second third was full bodied and I noticed that the Dominus packs a significant nicotine punch.   The flavors were a rich pepper  and hazelnut combo with lots of earth and spice – it was still a bit sweet on the finish.  I really enjoyed this third!

The final third was a very intense mix of pepper, butter, and spice.  Very strong flavor, full bodied, and still packs a nicotine punch!

Overall, this was an impressive cigar.   The construction turned out to be great and it produced a lot of smoke!  Ernesto Padilla claims this is his fullest bodied cigar, this is surprising because the 1932 and Obsidian seem to be just as full bodied to me.  Regardless, the flavors were excellent!  The price is a bit high and it packs a real nicotine punch, so it may not be for everybody but I liked it!  It did not rank perfect in any individual category but was well rounded.  Give it a try!

Flavor and Taste: 18/20
Construction: 9/10
Wrapper: 4/5
Value: 9/10
Would I buy a Box: 4/5
Total: 44/50
