Quick Smoke: Padilla 1948 Torpedo (Pepin-made)

12 May 2013

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


I put a box of these Torpedos in my humidor a couple years ago, and they already had years of age on them before they came into my possession. This Padilla 1948 was made by Pepin before the two parted ways back in early 2008. It was never a particularly full-bodied smoke, and the years have only mellowed this cigar. There are hints of cream, coffee, and cedar with a slightly sour, damp cardboard flavor. While the construction is still excellent, the flavors are just so-so.

Verdict = Hold.
