I won a lot of 5 Padilla series 68 Robusto. Only paid $10. Horrible cigars. Very tight draw, uneven burn, kept going out, burned hot. Even tried reaming it out with a cigar enhancer. It helped a little but not much. Description said they had a 93 rating. I don't think so. Certainly not a very enjoyable cigar. Happy I only wasted $10 on these sticks.

I am glad it was only $10. it may be worth checking to see how long ago they received that rating. A lot can change in time. It doesn't have to, but it can.

Probably a payola type rating from the sixties or an internet under license product.

That '93' Rating was dished out over a DECADE ago LOL and was for the original batch way back when. Has been reblended twice since then, only to be sold at C.I. and it's lackey sites. Lower quality each time. The current batch is smokeable, but generic and below average. In fact just about every Padilla sold here, except the Single Batch, is below average. The Single Batch is a solid, decent average smoke.
