The Padilla Cava line will now have a maduro counterpart. Padilla Cigar Company will showcase the new Padilla Cava Maduro line at this year’s 2016 IPCPR Trade Show. In addition, the existing Padilla Cava Natural line will receive new bands giving both the Cava Natural and Cava Maduro a common feel.
The Padilla Cava Maduro will feature a San Andres Maduro wrapper, a Corojo 99 binder from Nicaragua, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos for the filler. The Cava Maduro will be available in the same five sizes as the Padilla Cava.
The Cava (Natural) line made its debut in 2016. The line is skewed toward big ring gauges as three of the frontmarks have a 60+ ring gauge. There is also a classic size Toro and Robusto offering.
