Padilla Barcelona heads to international markets this month

There’s a new Padilla cigar called “Barcelona”, though oddly enough it won’t debut in Spain.

Instead, the new line will ship to Germany and Latvia later this month before heading to other international markets. The reason for the name is that it is made at the Cósigna factory in Nicaragua, which is owned by Daniel Guerrero of Barcelona.

La Padilla Barcelona is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco from AGANORSA, topped with a wrapper of corojo rosado. It will debut in three sizes: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 52) and Robusto Gordo (5 x 56). Padilla says the price will be around €10 per cigar, although the price will vary by country. The Barcelona line comes in boxes of 20 cigars.

In an email, Ernesto Padilla said half wheel that the cigars are “medium and complex”, blended for consumers looking for an alternative to Cuban cigars.

Padilla is distributed by Cigar World in Germany and SIA Tabacalera in Latvia. Distributors will also have the ability to order exclusive sizes. Padilla said half wheel there is also a Gran Salomon vitola in the works for a future release.
