Padron cigars receive their quality in the manner in which these cigars are made. Expect a restricted batch to become introduced available for purchase just once every year. The real reason for this really is Padron uses the ideal Cuban seed tobaccos grown in Nicaragua when they are at their peak of
If you have 2 hours plus their is no better cigar to burn. Burn, draw, and flavor are perfect all 8 smokeable inches.
The construction has been consistent. The descriptions of a hint of coffee and cocoa are accurate. The pre-light aroma is wonderful. And when you light up, there is a ton of smoke. It is strong, but still pretty smooth. Just make sure you set aside some serious time! (Or cut it in two and smoke your first of two Rothschilds!)
Draws like a Dominican but had the flavor range of a Cuban but not the intensity - very tasty. A solid 2 hr smoke. Nub worthy. Ash looked Cuban as well. Burn was a little uneven at time. Will definitely be buying more.
I have been a cigar smoker for over 30 years. My first was a Padron Executive and my tastes have expanded exponentially. I still keep coming back to Padron. As a personal taste I still like the natural wrapper but that is not to say the Maduro isn t worth a try. I ve tried the limited series, 1926, anniversary, and the ones produced for the personal milestones like Padron family birthdays. I frequently smoke Cubans and as hard as they are to get, still Padrons. Give them a try. You will not be disappointed.
