Exceptional Cigar,after all it s a Padron. Never had a bad one.Great service and price from Famous smoke shop
If I were offered my last cigar I would ever smoke, this would be it. The attention to detail that the Padron Family puts into production and quality control is second to NONE!!!!
My everyday. You cant do better. Blind test winner 100% o the time. Its just made better.
Every Padron I smoked, from the thousands series to the special anniversary editions have been great. The construction in all those cigars is perfect and the draw is always, I really mean always, perfect. The burn is always even, you can relax and take your time with a draw every two, three, even five minutes and it won t go off. The flavors, especially after the first inch are a crescendo of complexity, moreishness and balance. Take your time, retrohale and experience the notes from the more obvious to the more subtle. For me the 1926 No. 1 and No. 6 are the best of the series and among the best that Padron makes and that is a tall order given how great all of their line-up is. This is the kind of cigar that I keep thinking about long after I finished smoking it. Also try both the Maduro and Natural: both are great in their own ways and deliver flavors in spades. This is as good as it gets and I will take one over any Cuban or any FFOX.
I bought a box of these May 31 2006 and just smoked the 1st one tonight ! It s great, perfect ash that I flicked off after an inch, perfect draw, and a taste closer to Dominican than Nicaragua. That s what extreme ageing does, it takes off the rough edges. I have a couple of hundred high line cigars that I ve had in my humidors for at least 10 years and they have all been exquisite. Why I did this is another story but I m glad I did now. BTW they were $240 then which considering some inflation is probably more than the current price. Also, I find cigar reviews that talk about various flavors tasted a bunch of hooey, I ve been smoking high end cigars my whole life and have never tasted any of those things.
My, oh my, Padron can make some almost all great cigars. They have succeeded again with the 1926 no. 2. A lot of cigars they make would rate as high, but only the 1926 50th I would rate higher. This cigar is worth every penny.
The 1926 series has to be one of the only group of cigars that make Havana nervous. Great draw, perfect amount of smoke, wonderful burn, and a taste that can only come from Padron.
This cigar in a robusto size is amazing. Upon lighting up it is quite closed but after a few minutes burning it opens up in the most complex, delicious range of flavors. The draw is easy but not too easy and each delivers a good mouthful of thick, silky, delicious smoke. The flavours are all dark coffee, chocolate, leather, caramel but without being too sweet. The smell of the cigar burning in itself is amazing. The burn time for this little cigar was near 1 hr and it is amazing combined with some dark chocolate.
I bought a 4 pack a month before my birthday. I was almost scared to try it for fear I might be disappointed. Everything I read about seemed great. My bday came and lit it up. All I can say is that it was beyond my wildest imagination. Perfect. Only been smoking about a year and this was a ten. Can t wait to try the 1964 and won t wait till my next bday.
