    I haven’t met a Padron 1926 that I haven’t liked. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, buy some 601 blue labels and put them away for 1 year with the cello off. They are really close with some age.

    Well… I have never tried one of these beauties, because they’re absolutely impossible to find in Brazil (where I live). But this review really got me interested. Mouth-watering! :-)

    Sounds like a truly stunning cigar. I haven’t smoked one of these yet but I have had one of the Padron 1964 Anniversary cigars and it was the best cigar I have ever had. How would you compare the 1926 to the 1964?

    I don’t compare them favorably, Travis. I just got finished smoking another ’64 torpedo, wanting to give it another chance before it was finally review (which is coming). To me, it’s not in the same league with the ’26. To my tastes, it’s a watered down, inferior version.

    Lee,

    Then I guess I need to try out one of the 1926s then since I really did love the 1964s. Can’t wait.

    I liked the ’64, and agree with you on the bang/buck deficit of that stick. Maybe I’ll splurge on a pair of ’26 for my birthday. Thanks for the reviews and comparisons. Keep up the good work.

    I have been tempted to pick up the 64 a few times but have rarely had the motivation to spend that kind of money on one cigar even on special occasions. I wish I could get a deal on them.

    I asked for one of these top shelf cigars at my local dealer, and the lady said:
    “sure, thats… $35 (australian)”
    “wait no… sorry, it’s $55.”
    “Oh oh wait no, no no, it’s $95”

    I have been meaning to try one of these but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Maybe this weekend…

    Could not agree more. This is an Awesome Smoke. Had one Sunday. Go and get them while you can. I got a box.

    I simply have a hard time thinking that ANY cigar is worth that much money. $20.00 a stick for an hour and a half? I’d sooner pay less than half for a lesser cigar that is still enjoyable. The Oliva Serie V torpedo comes to mind.

    I have a box of 25 in Natural. The cigar is horrible. The construction looks good but it just doesn’t smoke or taste well.

    Bought a ten pack over two years ago and cannot remember where I bought them. But they have been resting at least three years which is a year less than Terri and I have been together. Hope they have mellowed some as they are the maduro belicoso.
