Padron Serie 1926 40th Anniversary Torpedo
The limited edition Padron 1926 40th Anniversary Torpedo Maduro is a breathtaking, box-pressed beauty with an all-5-year-aged blend of bold Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and mouthwatering, ebony wrappers. An aficionado's dream cigar presented in a box of 20 cigars.
This is one good smoke. I give it a 92 all around! At least i tried. The rating bar goes from 90 to 100.
For me, the 40th maduro is my all-time favorite cigar with the 40th natural in extremely close 2nd. The rest of the 1926 line is also stellar. And yes, I ve had plenty of genuine Cubans and many premium non-Cubans. The 1926 40th is the best cigar on the planet. End of discussion.
This is all I would ever smoke. This was Cigar Aficionado's 2004 cigar of the year and for good reason. It is pricey, but you get your money's worth.
This cigar sets the bar for all full bodied high end smokes on the market today. I have sampled all of the best from Cuban Cohiba Esplendido to God of Fire to Opus X to Ashton VSG and ESG - there is no other cigar on earth that matches the Padron 1926 Maduro - and the 40th Anniversary is the crown achievement. Opens up with a strong taste of coffee, earth and chocolate. As the smoke evolves you can't believe that a cigar this strong has such a balanced flavor and aroma. The construction is unparalleled and the burn is flawless. I love this stick... only wish I had more special occasions!
