I've been smoking cigars for forty (40) years and smoked many Cuban cigars that were good. But NOT this good! It's worth every penny spent.
What can I say. They are Padrons. Excellent taste. So good with a good glass of bourbon. Excellent with espresso. Love these cigars
Never smoked one I did not totally enjoy. Alway consistent.....
This cigar is without debate one of the best cigars ever made. This cigar blows away any Cuban I ve ever had. They re not cheap...but you get what you pay for. This powerful smoke is perfect every time. Must try!
My son got me five of these little jewels. At that time I did not know the history of Padron, only that they were a decent cigar.When I pulled one out to smoke, I was instantly aware of cigar craftsmanship. The wrapper was perfect; V cutiing it the first cold draw was perfect.The taste from the cold draw was perfect.The initial toast was, dare I say, perfect along with the urn and the taste was to die for.The smoke never changed dramatically thank God and the nuttiness / light friendly kind of spice was always there.I smoked that cigar down to the point my fingers burnt.At that point I did my homework and studied the Padron cigar history.Before you die, you owe yourself the reward of experiencing one of the cigars God probably smokes in heaven.
This is the best one I ve had so far
Absolutely without question the best cigar I have ever smoked. I remember the first one I smoked and thought to myself no cigar could ever be so complex containing a multitude of distinct well blended flavors. It must have been a mistake, so I bought another one and discovered to my amazement the same mistake had been made twice. I was blessed with how the first one was the last of a box and the second one came from the next box opened to refill the empty box on display. So I bought two boxes. Since then I have smoked over 160 of the 85 year Family Reserve, each was a precise duplication of the previous one enjoyed. The tobacco in these cigars is already over 10 years old and no further aging is required BUT if your cigar shop is not on top of their humidor then do give them enough time in your humidor to stabilize at 67% to 68% before smoking them.
One of the finest cigars I have ever smoked. You wish the cigar would not end.
If you find yourself on a never ending search for the perfect cigar, stop right here. This is it.
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.
