(Description taken in part from Cigar-coop.com and Halfwheel.com websites)

Padilla Finest Hour draws its inspiration from Churchill’s legendary “This was their finest hour” speech that he delivered to the House of Commons on June 18, 1940 as Great Britain was in the midst of the Second World War.

In 2020 Ernesto Padilla announced that he would move the production of the Padilla Finest Hour lines from an undisclosed factory in Honduras to Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.

The packaging and sizes will remain the same. The blend is also supposed to stay the same, though Padilla told halfwheel that it will use tobaccos from the AJ Fernandez inventory, meaning it likely uses the same basic tobacco varietals but the tobacco won’t be exactly the same.

Finest Hour is offered in three blends—Connecticut, Sungrown Habano and Oscuro—each in the same three sizes and price points.

Today we look at the Oscuro.

In 2019 I reviewed the previous version which was made in Honduras. It scored a respectable 91. This review will see if the move to AJ's facility makes a difference.
