7 1/2 x 50 - Maduro - Single
Padron cigars are handmade with patience with Cuban seed tobaccos that happen to be long-aged and are entirely from in Nicaragua. It?s a genuine classic along with a cigar by using a unique taste which make it defy the affordable cost. They are identified by their dark, square-pressed shapes.
The one thing about padrons and especially this cigar is they are consistently great smokes. I am a Maduro fan and Padrons never let me down.
First cigar ive smoked where it matched the description. Coco and coffe taste is great but not so strong it takes away from a real strong smoke. A hint of spice after the coco and coffe settles.
I like 5000s better. This was decent, long smoke and powerful hitting..some cocoa and coffee but I found this a bit one dimensional as compared to other Padrons Ive had. Given the smoking time and the flavor..combined with ultra airy draw..although a good smoke not a favorite for me. Also kicked pretty good...I knew I smoked one for about 2 days..
I travel to Nicaragua often on business and I'm fortunate enough to bring back a box or two of Padrons every time I go. This time around I brought back both a box of Executive Maduro and Natural. These cigars arent for the faint of heart and will last roughly an hour if smoked consistenly. If you set them down for an extended period of time they will of course go out lke any other cigar. Light them back up and it is as though it never went out. My favourite aspect of this long smoke isnt just the lovely consistency of the draw nor is it the beatiful smell of the tobacco. Its not even the perfect burn. Above all else, I love that this cigar will taste distinctly different at several different stages throughout its life, all tastes which are, by the way, wounderful. I used to be a Cuba cigar snob before I travelled to Nicaragua and discovered Padron. There is no doubt that Cuba has some incredible cigars, but overall for me Padron is the standard and thats before you even begin to factor in the incredible price of these cigars.
