Introducing the Padilla Finest Hour Cigars
Launched in January 2019, Padilla Finest Hour is a Winston Churchill-inspired premium cigar that comes in a three-blend lineup. Padilla Finest Hour cigars draw their inspiration from Churchill’s legendary “This was their finest hour” speech that he delivered to the House of Commons on June 18, 1940, as Great Britain was thrust into the Second World War.
Let’s, take an up-close look at these three top-shelf blends that pay homage to the most famous cigar-smoking elder statesman of the 20th century.
Padilla Finest Hour Connecticut cigars feature a golden-brown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and premium filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. With smooth, velvety flavors of creamed coffee, toasted almonds, a touch of spice and cedar, Padilla Finest Hour Connecticut is perfect for the novice cigar aficionado or the veteran smoker who prefers a mellow to medium bodied blend.
Padilla Finest Hour Sungrown cigars pack tons of rich medium-bodied flavors into a Nicaraguan puro blend that’s highlighted by a stunning reddish-brown Habano wrapper with a nice oily sheen. Expect a slow burning smoke that displays a crisp, even burn, solid white ash, and well-refined notes of leather, espresso, cinnamon, cedar, and cream. It’s a great premium cigar that pairs wonderfully with your favorite gourmet coffee beverage, craft beer, bourbon, or rum.
A Maduro lover’s dream, the Padilla Finest Hour Oscuro cigar is a beautifully constructed, solidly packed medium-bodied blend of fully aged long filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua covered by a stunning, dark and oily, USA Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. After toasting and lighting this ebony colored gem, you’ll be greeted by exceptionally smooth and flavorful notes of chocolate, coffee, leather, cream, and hints of fruit.
All three blends are offered in three popular big-ring vitolas: Robusto (5 x 52), Toro (6 x 52), and Double Toro 6 x 60. Each size is beautifully banded and presented in luxurious high-lacquer 20-count dress boxes.
Whichever blend you choose, your “Finest Hour” will be smoking one of these handmade premium gems from Padilla Cigars.
