This a very very well known, expensive, hard to find and hyped up cigar. Padron Anniversaries appear almost monthly in CA and consistantly receive 90+ scores. Are they worth the price or trouble finding them? I say yes to both. They live up to all the hype and probably then some
From the square box-pressed shape to the ornate band, this is a very unique cigar that is immediately distinguishable in a crowd. The maduro wrapper tends to be very dark with almost no veins and a very silky appearance.
Try and find a soft spot on one of these...you'll never find one. They don't feel very dense but are very solid at the same time. All you really need to do is nick the end with the cutter and you will find that the cigar imparts an ideal amount of smoke and the burn is typically razor sharp.
Full flavored and rich, but not overpowering by any means. Flavors range from cocoa, earth, leather and chocolate. As you smoke the cigar it tastes better right up until the time you burn your fingers on the nub.
These are worth every penny, but it's tough to be happy about paying that much for a box of cigars. This is a cigar that should be saved for an occasion when you can sit back and really enjoy it with some friends and a single malt.
Overall Rating :
It must be obvious by now that this is my favorite smoke. I've tried many many Cubans and many of them are fantastic, but for me, this takes the cake.
