The Padilla 1932 is back again. Ernesto Padilla tweeted a picture of the cigar earlier with familiar bands and new 10-count boxes, but that’s hardly the last of the changes. The new cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers from the Oliva family farms according to Padilla. It is now being made at TABOLISA, Oliva’s Estelí, Nicaragua-based factory.

Five sizes are planned a Robusto (5 x 50), Churchill (7 x 50), Toro (6 x 50), Gordo (6 x 60) and Torpedo (6 1/8 x 52).

Padilla also told halfwheel the cigar will be sold exclusively through Cigars International/Meier & Dutch, which includes also the and Cigar Bid retail operations.

The cigars are already listed on Cigars International’s website with pricing set between $5.95 and $7.80. Padilla told halfwheel he hopes to have the cigars for sale in February.

The 1932 line was originally introduced in 2006 when Padilla was still making cigars at El Rey de los Habanos. Padilla then tried making the cigars at his own factory in Miami, before production eventually moved to Raíces Cubanas in Honduras. In May 2012, Padilla announced he was discontinuing the 1932 line as he revamped his portfolio.
