Padron Serie 1926 #6 Cigars were first introduced to the market in 2002 to commemorate Jose Padron's 75th birthday. This special blend uses 5 - 10 year aged tobaccos including a launch Nicaraguan Habano wrapper for a bold flavor that will launch you into cigar Nirvana. This is truly a special cigar.
The 1926 Padron was quite simply best cigar I have ever had. I have had plenty of access to Cuban cigars (I know a seamtress who has a visa and travels to Cuba regularly). The cigar is somewhat pricey (around $40.00) but it is worth it, trust me. I was fortunate enough to try one at a marketing event here in St. Petersburg, free of charge. I could not stop thinking about that cigar for days. Unfortunately they are a very limited edition and are not coming out again until sometime in May. Can't wait to buy a box.
This is probably the BEST Ive had to date. Talk all you want about cubans, I'll trade any day. The aroma is phenomenal, taste is like a fine dessert. Burn was a little off, but if thats the trade for the quality, I'll take it. I said I would just try one. That was a bad decision. Now I have to figure out which of my wife's shoes I'm gonna have to sell !! Happy Smoking!
One of the few cigars on this planet that are perfect. Such a balance of flavor and strength. I give it perfect marks even though I prefer the 1964 maduros, and the Family Selects. I wouldn't go so far as to say this is less of a cigar, it is simply different. You have to try one, it's almost beyond words.
