Padron Family Reserve No. 46 is 2010's installment of this annual release, and is preceded by Padrón Family Reserve No. 45, Cigar Aficionado's 2009 Cigar of the Year. Presented here in the maduro wrapper, it's full-bodied, full-flavored, and every bit an instant classic.
This is the best one I ve had so far
The 44 gets a lot of attention but in my mind the 46 Maduro is the best family reserve of all. Maybe it's the perfect size...a ton of smoke and great draw and burn. The best Padron...maybe the best of all. A real 95 rating.
Well constructed ample-sized vitola with ample Nico spice, transitioning nicely to hints of coffee and dark chocolate.Moderately spicy long finish.A notch above the 44th and 45th Family Reserve maduro stock.
