Padron Family Reserve No. 85 Maduro was originally the 47 Years release for 2011, but was renamed No. 85 in honor of Orlando Padron's birthday. Complex is an understatement. A blend of all-Nicaraguan tobaccos is encased in Nicaraguan Maduro wrappers. Yet another homerun in the Family Reserve series.

This is one of the best cigars I've ever tasted. Don't listen to the noob who says these are over priced and have a bad burn and taste. Nothing could be further from the truth. He probably smoked these right after they were delivered to his house via mail with storing them in a proper humidifier for at least a month. Every experienced cigar smoker knows this needs to be done when ordering from the internet and even local stores. Well on to the review. I've smoked 5 of these bad boys and they are ah-mazing! The burn is razor sharp. The ash is nice and even all the way through. The wrapper is flawless with a real chocolaty taste. Draw is perfect producing lots of luxurious smoke. Initial taste on the tongue has spice and creme mixed with some sweetness. The sweetness becomes more apparent on the finish (which is long) and tastes like some kind dark fruity flavor. The long finish allows this cigar to be smoke slowly, preventing it from over heating and preserving the flavor for about an hour. This cigar is one you will want to smoke down to the nub. less

If you are familiar with Padrón family reserve line of cigars, you already know that each is amazingly rich and well made. I d like to point out how smooth the 85 years is compared to some other family reserves. It had a smooth finish with hints of coffee and chocolate, and it was easy to smoke. Age this cigar for at least a few months, as it only balances it and brings out all the subtle flavors. Great smoke for a night out or special occasion, or those who just want to kick back and enjoy a great smoke. 10/10! I highly recommend!less

I bought four of these overpriced cigars at auction after reading the other reviews and what a huge disappointment it was. A Padron like no other bad burn, bad draw, bad taste, burnt rubber comes to mind.I split all my cigar orders with a friend and he agreed these were disappointing. Buy the 3000, 6000, 1964 maduro even the 1926 don't waste money on these. Quality control was asleep when these were made.less

The thing about a Padron Reserve is that you already know how good it's going to be but half the fun is just knowing what kind of cigar you are smoking on.... Everything about this is perfect the draw, burn,taste, and style. less
