Basically 5 out of 5 cigars.......Padron is the best of the best., in terms of quality, consistency, virtually every category. In 20 years I have NEVER had a plugged, harsh, tunneled , or any kind of issues. These don t need to sit or sleep in your humidor for several months ......they are 100% ready when you open the box. Negative review here is BS .........Padron s are the most counterfited cigars in the world, especially the 64 s and special lines.......most likely that is what he had.......ready rest of Padron reviews........nobody ever rated these cigars so low, so maybe be has an issue to resolve.
I recently picked up 1 of these and also a Series A maduro. Both were absolute rubbish. Terrible construction and quality control issues such as a large rip in the wrapper that was partially 'patched' by the roller. Worst of all both cigars were disgustingly bitter. Tasted like they had spent a week or two in the trunk of a car in a Las Vegas parking lot in July. Trust the low rating and avoid. Try the 1926 80 or the Family Reserve 45 which are similar in price and both incredible sticks.
