Bear Cub Pick #4!

6 Nov , 2015,

I know this blog started off as “weekly picks” but hey… life happens y’all!

And this ‘lil Cub was busting moves to coordinate our first Featured Cigar Manufacturer Night with Arturo Fuente Cigars!!! Hopefully some of you were awesome enough to attend 🙂 There were some fantastic cigars, wine, food, live jazz music, and great company! You can view the photo album from that night right here! For those of you who couldn’t make it, not to worry, we will have another one soon!

But, I digress. Back to the topic of interest. Cigars.

This time I’ve decided to feature the Padrón Dámaso No. 8.


I have been thoroughly enjoying these since we got them in a couple of weeks ago, and had to order two more boxes since (Thanks Alex!). It’s named after Dámaso Padrón, which is Jose O. Padrón’s grandfather who migrated to Cuba from the Canary Islands in the mid 1800’s.  The Padrón family started their own industry in Miami, FL with a mere $600 and eventually settled in Esteli, Nicaragua after surviving a factory fire, the Sandinista Rebellion, a U.S. Embargo on Nicaragua, and much more.

The Padrón Dámaso is unlike other Padrón Cigars. Although the filler is still Nicaraguan, the Dámaso is graciously distinguished by it’s Connecticut-Seed wrapper. The No. 8 is a smooth, delicious, easy smoke. Some flavors in the burn are hints of citrus, nuttiness, and cedar. Its creamy, fruity, and over-all amazing. I would consider it to be a consistently mild bodied cigar, hitting medium perhaps towards the end, but  only just barely.

Be leery, y’all, for this one is majorly addictive.


In a good way.
