At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, Ernesto Padilla and Padilla Cigar Company had on display its most premium cigar to date, the Padilla 1932 Millisime.
The word millisime is French for vintage and the cigar is so-named because the tobaccos are vintage tobaccos. These are tobaccos Padilla was able to procure from the Raices Cubanas. In this case, the tobaccos for the Padilla 1932 Millisime are 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos from the Aganorsa farms, however, the vintage dates are not being disclosed.
The tobaccos used were aged in tercios, something used for extensive aging. Tercios comes from the bark of palm trees and is used to wrap the tobaccos in bales. Even the wrapper comes from aging in tercios and that is something not too common.
The cigars will be packaged in 100-count crates. Each crate will contain 20 cigars of five vitolas (Robusto, Toro, Double Toro, Churchill, and Figurado). The crates will retail at $4,750.00 per unit – averaging out to $47.50 per cigar.
