Just wondering if anyone loves the Padilla Hybrids as much as I do. I've had both the Maduro and Connecticut versions. I think for the money they offer a consistently fantastic experience - great draw, smoke and flavor - and stand up to many other "snazzier", more expensive smokes...
Been waiting for this for 3 weeks. Finally CBID order arrived. Filled with fluid, neither torch nor soft flame would light. Mechanisms fell apart after fiddling with for a bit. Major DISSAPOINTMENT. Hope I get a refund, as I do not want a replacement.
CI has them on the weekly deal...$39.99 + free shiping....20 sticks. I do like a lot of Padilla, the 1932, the Miami, the '68 and even the Cazadores isn't too bad for a "budget stick". If these are good at all, it seems too hard to pass up at $40 for 20. Are they really THAT BAD?!?! :shocked:
Just won a bundle (Dominicos) off devil for 22 bucks...
The hybrids were 43 bucks.
Got a good Carlos Toraño sampler (exodus silver, 1959, virtuoso, 1916, and Casa Toraño for 13 dollars).. Toraño makes some good smokes....
Padilla Hybrid - Cigars International
Never heard about this until the latest CI catalog. I'm always looking for under rated affordable smokes. $2.00 a stick is a great price, but how do they smoke?
I heard the Dominus was a good cigar. I haven't heard much about the Cazadores.
Generally I'm a...
I have smoked probably 2 dozen of these and I have yet to have any draw or construction problems. I really like the med to full bodied flavor of ce...

At first, I wasn't sure I'd like this cigar. It had a light-brown wrapper with a faint,tart pre-light flavor. I couldn't tell if the tartness was just a...
CBid has an auction going for bundles of Padilla Hybrid robustos. Bid is at $37.99 right now. I've been wanting to try these after reading some very good reviews.
They usually come in a box, so I'm wondering if "factory mazos of 20" are indeed the real deal, or are they seconds or some other...
Looking for this set, complete set with slipcase and packaging as a birthday gift for a close friend. Doesn't have to be new, but I'd like it to be in good condition.
I've Googled for it, checked Ebay, all the local stores, everything, no luck for a complete one (I found one on Ebay that was...
1 whole box of robustos. They are about 8-9 months old, and I just recently cracked the seal on the box to check 'em out.
No PP, I would prefer a money order but will take a check from a member with trader feedback. :)
Anyone tried these? I got a bundle the other day and just finished one. Powerful, spicy, and good burn start to finish. Well constructed I thought. I am not very good at descriptions but a good smoke. Ant thoughts?
+The steeping really seems to get the best flavor out of the beans
-I get nasty silt in my cup.
-It's a pain to clean the screen when done.
+Allows perfect temp control
-Takes too damn long to babysit and pour water over it
I propose this:
-Take water just off a...
