Padilla Dominus Robusto

Submitted by David Carley on February 14, 2012 – 7:58 amOne Comment

This was my first time smoking this great stick so I thought it would be a nice one to let people know about. This is a hybrid tobacco (Cuban-seed Nicaraguan Corojo) planted in 2006. Which is one of the main reasons it is a limited production. They are defiantly worth the search to find one once you do. They are one of the best Padilla has put out in my opinion.

Construction: The wrapper is veiny, and the cigar features three caps. No soft spots were detected; the cigar was definitely very firm to the touch.The pre-light draw offered a fair amount of resistance which will match the firmness perceived and described above. The cigar did not produce large amounts of smoke; the ash was very packed with a dark charcoal grey color.

Appearance: A significant feature of the Dominus is the red tint of the wrapper. Although it does not seem oily to the eye, it does feel so to the touch. The lion’s face dominates the entire band.

Flavor: The initial draw was very spicy (white pepper with hints of cloves), and it was really felt on both the mouth and the lips. At about an inch into the cigar, the spiciness mellowed out, and notes of leather and nuts became dominant. Towards the last part of the cigar, the leather became the predominant flavor. The spiciness was present throughout the smoke. The finish was fairly long, and it could be felt all over the mouth. The smoke in general had a creamy characteristic to it which, as mentioned before, covered the whole mouth.

Overall: At about $8.00/stick, it is definitely not a daily cigar, but it is certainly one to add to the humidor and enjoy once in a while. This was my first experience with a cigar featuring Nicaraguan Corojo components, and I enjoyed. It can be classified as full in both body and flavor. The strength of the flavor, although strong, will not be overwhelming. My only criticism of the cigar is that the flavors did not change much during the smoke, but what was there was very abundant. But I would recommend this to many of my friends to try something new.

    Why would you dislike a cigar with a consistent flavor profile? That is the main reason I love the Nub line from studio tobac, because the flavor is perfect from start to finish. Sometimes it is nice for a cigar to take you on a journey, but I don’t think every single one has to.
