"thank god it came in a sampler!"
Received several in a sampler pack and aged them in one of my four hummi s for several months. I usually stock enough in my 4 hummi s to allow for this aging. Anyway, the smoke was nice, I would say it was a very light med thru the entire stick. Nothing really complex about it. I would of gave it a solid 3 star rating out of 5 which is good coming from me ,, but at this price- NO WAY!!! and with an inventory of Oliva V series Melanio under eight bucks/stk just absolute heaven , or the figardo s,,,La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor awesome! , Flor de las Antillas it s like smoking velvet! This is some of my 5 stars,,, 4 stars some -Nica rustica wow-wow! , Torano Exodus 1959 maduro box press, Perdomo 20th anniversary/ or the Champagne NIOR incredible-INCREDIBLE flavors , Alec Bradley Prensado just perfection ,Alec Bradly Tempus,, just to name some for the point. All these other cigars are over half the cost of the padron,, I had to dip back into the hummi for something of real value after smoking the padron. Yes, smooth, yes nice burn, yes, yes but severely LACKING any type of flavor..just a real-real light smoke. And if that s what I wanted, I could of pulled out one of my low cost Nica Libre s- AGED for 3 months Must age , better enjoyment all around for under three bucks!!.So to those out there that want a real test?.... smoke this padron, then follow up with an Oliva V melanio,, and then write your review. I m telling you, for the money, even try the perdomo 20th anniversary or the prensado,,as a rating gauge!!! THEN, maybe you will see what 4-5 star cigars are like. You will forget the padron s!

wow, this cigar is great. i have a huge humidor with a huge selection of different cigars ranging from average to very exclusive items. but i keep reach for this cigar time after time. i have cigars that have been sitting in my humidor for 12 years. some people think i am aging them on purpose but im not. i just been smoking the same padron 1964 cigar over and over again!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried and tried to find something wrong with this stick, but you can't. Everything is awesome. Worth every penny.

"perfection in every stick"
Im on my 6th box of these.
Ive have smoked for about 10 years and this is the only cigar I consistantly buy over and over again.
The reason I like them is after you smoke one you dont have a burn or a cigar taste in your mouth for days on end.
They are smooth and taste good. I smoke them with a cup of coffee.

"Superb all the way!"
From start to finish, this is my favorite puro. I prefer this robusto to any Cuban I have tried. Very good balance. Sweet aroma and a trace of warm cocoa/coffee, complimented by full, billowy clouds of smoke. This is my favorite cigar, bar none.

The Padron Aniversario cigar line is among the very best cigars in the world on a consistant basis. They always deliver stick after stick. In a world where often times expensive cigars don't measure up to the high price, this cigar is worth every penny.

"Mr. Padron you have my Attention!!"
This is one Great Smoke, since it is the first cigar I have ever had that does not change at the half way mark, like most other smokes. I think that this is something special, and why they are so pricy, and hard to obtain. An Excellent choice, without the Opus X Hype!!

"The best robusto on the market."
This is my favorite robusto bar none. More depth and flavor than an Opus X,

"The Very Best"
This is the best smoke I have ever had. I look for months at a time to find but well worth the wait. I would take one of these over any two Cubans
