Padron Serie 1926 #35 cigars are to cigars what Van Goug is to the art world. It's nothing short of a masterpiece. Rolled with a longfiller core of 5-10 year aged tobaccos and a similarly aged Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, this cigar commemorating Jose Padron's 75th birthday is a must have.
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.
Damn good! Expensive but Damn good.
Everybody, and i do mean everybody i know that's tried the #35's loves them. Quality smoke from end-to-end!
The best cigar I've ever had. Everything about it was great: burn was razor edge, draw was perfect, appearance - well it wasn't the prettiest cigar I've ever seen, BUT pretty is as pretty does and it did everything else pretty damn well. Broke down and bought a box, and they have all been the same - GREAT. Just can't afford to smoke these everyday.
