The tobacco used to make Padron cigars is grown in Nicaragua from Cuban seeds, aged and patiently hand-rolled. The pleasant and unique taste of the cigars will not stop the prices from being very economical. Padron cigars are typically recognizable thanks to their square-pressed shape, medium to full bodied flavor and their dark and oily wrappers. Smokers will notice notes of coffee and cocoa beans while enjoying these well-balanced puros. Padron cigars always meet good quality standards thanks
After reading a magazine article about smaller diameter cigars being top manufacturer's favorites I found these to be the perfect balance of flavor and price. You literally can't beat them for the price.
Size,shape,draw and burn are very good.The taste is very bland and not very interesting in my opinion,I'll stick them in the humidor for a while and see if they improve.
Padrons are my favorite brand and I hate to write a bad review on them but the fact is the ambassador is the bottom of the line and unless I can get a great deal on them, I probably won't buy any more from stock. The biggest problem is they are grossly inconsistent. I have yet to smoke a box and not have at least 3 or 4 that would not draw or were completely plugged. Some also have soft spots or stems causing poor burns and or runs. But when you do get a good one they are very good! At a regular price of $85+ per box having to throw away 3 or 4 with a couple more having bad burns is not worth the price to look for the good ones.
