Today we have the Padilla Achilles Salomon cigar for a quick review.  The cigars can be had fairly cheap when CI has a weekend or daily deal.  It is a rather large stick at 7 x 58 but not as long as other Salomons I have smoked.  The wrapper was pretty smooth and gave off a nice corojo flavor.

The burn wasn’t the greatest as I had to touch it up multiple times.  I got sutle spice from this stick and a hint of cedar, not much else.  It was fairly smooth and created a decent amount of smoke, but was very one dimensional.

Overall I wouldn’t recommend this cigar to experienced smokers who crave the flavor bombs, because this isn’t one of them.

I will stick to my favorite Padilla stick, the Signature 1932!
