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.
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.
It turns out that this just refused to stay lit. As someone else noted, the natural starts off spicy, but calms down after about half an inch. The construction, draw and appearance on this little cigar were all above par. But the burn... just didnt cut it for me. Yes, the ash was a solid and gray, but for whatever reason, it just didn't want to stay lit. The first time it died, i thought it was due to neglect, but after re-lighting, it died on me once more within five minutes. Now, im no expert, but I've had 90 cent cigars with better burn characteristics. Sorry, i can not find myself going there again with that price tag. Not comparing the two, as they are in two different leagues, but i'll stick to Grand Reserves for that price.
