Padron Cigars can be a complex flavored number of handmade long-aged robust Nicaraguan cigars. This cigar is not only an exceptional consistent cigar but a reasonable one as well. These complex cigars have a medium-to-full bodied flavor with cocoa and coffee bean essence and they are box pressed.
Have been smoking these consistently for over a year, are my every day go to smokes. Always flavorful, consistent with great craftmanship and draw. Do agree that I enjoy the natural vs. the maduro version, it just tastes better. On the weekends I ramp it up and enjoy an Anniversary or Family Reserve. You can never go wrong with Padron!
just received 2 x 5packs of the Churchill, it is a good cigar would rate it in the mid-80 range, good flavor changes in the beginning from leathery to slight hints of coffee/nutmeg in the middle , draw was smooth and light, burn was fair, half way through the cigar went out (this has happened a few times. Construction was nice on one of the cigars I cut too deep and cut the cap off, the Cigar didn't unravel. Appearance was nice dark and straight, very appealing. The burn was sometimes inconsistent. Last smoke went well with a single barrel Jack Daniels on ice, give this cigar a solid 85pts
This cigar is a keeper. Especially at 3 or 4 bucks a piece, cannot get a better smoke in my opinion. Smooth, rich taste with no after taste.
I'm writing this to retract the negative critique I wrote last month. After five weeks in my humidor these Padron Churchills are a different animal. The draw has smoothed out and the flavor though never a problem has improved. I just finished a Padron Churchill and it was a superior cigar in every way. I rate it a 9.
