For A Great, Budget Smoke, Check Out The Padilla Corojo 99 Cigar

Ernesto Padilla has done some amazing things with cigars, all the while keeping prices low. For years, he’s been making cigars with excellent construction but low price tags. When he launched the Padilla Criollo, Padilla San Andres, and Padilla Corojo 99 cigars at the 2015 IPCPR, he added to his arsenal of fantastic low-budget cigars. Although all of these cigars are good choices, the Padilla Corojo 99 cigar is perfect for those who enjoy a more full-bodied cigar.

Giving it a slightly bolder flavor than the Padilla Criollo, the Padilla Corojo 99 cigar has a Corojo 1999 wrapper. Inside the reddish brown wrapper is Nicaraguan Aganorsa long-fillers. It’s a medium to full-bodied cigar with flavors of spice, leather, and much much more.

The Padilla Corojo 99 cigar is made in Honduras, at none other than the Raices Cubanas factory. This factory is known for producing quality cigars- Alec Bradley Tempus is also made there. The Corojo 99 cigar is made by hand, entubado style. Like many traditional Cuban cigars, it is triple capped.

Everything about the Padilla Corojo 99 cigar works well together. Buy one from Cuenca Cigars for the best online prices, and don’t miss out on this affordable beauty.



Camacho Shellback Cigar A Bold Addition

In the past, the Camacho Brotherhood Series line of cigars celebrated the brotherhood of cigars with tobaccos from Honduras. At the 2015 IPCPR, the Camacho Shellback cigar changed things up. The cigar debuted at the conference, and adds a lot of diversity and boldness to the Brotherhood Series.

The Camacho Shellback cigar is a limited edition release- the only limited edition cigar in the Brotherhood Series. Only 80,000 cigars were made, making the cigar pretty hard to come by. Making the cigar even more special is a unique blend. The blend was created in honor of the term “Shellback”, which refers to a sail or who had crossed the equator for the first time. These Shellbacks went through an initiation event, so being called a Shellback was a big deal.

And this blend is a big deal. The Camacho Shellback cigar uses a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler (from the renowned Esteli region), and an Ecuador Habano wrapper. Medium to full-bodied, it’s a cigar that makes you feel lucky to be a part of the cigar-smoking brotherhood.


The Camacho Shellback cigar only comes in one size. You can buy the 5x60 Toro cigar from Cuenca Cigars for the best online prices. Get yours, and be proud to be part of the brotherhood.



San Cristobal Ovation Cigar Is In Limited Supply

Knowing that a cigar is limited edition makes smoking it that much more special. And the San Cristobal Ovation cigar, made by Ashton Cigars Inc, really is something special. The cigar came out the year after Ashton Cigars launched another limited edition beauty, the La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse cigar. Like the Noblesse, the Ovation cigar showcases Nicaraguan tobacco and is made at the My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

One of the features that makes the San Cristobal Ovationcigar so special is the wrapper. It has a Mexican San Andres wrapper- one that has been through double fermentation for 2.5 years. Packed in the luscious wrapper are Nicaraguan fillers grown on the My Family Cigars farm. There are 3,000 boxes of cigars available, and 22 cigars are in each box.


Try a San Cristobal Ovation cigar before there are none left. They come in only one vitola- a 6 1/2x 52. Buy from Cuenca Cigars for the best online prices.
