    My kind of review: Short, precise, to-the-point, and just the essentials. I enjoyed it, and look forward to more. No need to wax poetic in a cigar review, and you didn’t. And, no “exotic” flavors like “burnt pear meringue” or “lavender-infused applewood.” Keep ’em coming!

    I love the box press on this cigar. I agree with Bennett, great review brevity is something that is overlooked in reviews lately. I’m surprised you only gave it a 3 on the appearance though. Do you not like the veins on the wrapper?

    I really think that Padrons are pretty ugly. They are wonderful smokes but remind me of box pressed dog turds. Just too rustic looking. Thanks for the comments and hopefully I will have more of these quick reviews for everyone!

    Well that certainly makes me want to smoke one. Now next time I go into my B&M I’ll just be reminded of box pressed dog turds! hahaha

    If i could only smoke one cigar for the rest of my life it would be this one. Same size and all.

    The Exclusivo is 5.5×50 though. Is this a new size??

    I’ve never had a 5.5×60 but the 5.5×50 is phenomenal.

    Sorry it was a typo. It’s a 5.5×50. The box press made it feel smaller to me. My favorite vitola is a corona Gorda and this was pretty darn close.

    I’ve never had a bad … or even a mediocre … Padron 1964. This must be one of the best cigar blends ever. My personal preference is for the Maduro Torpedo, but I’d gladly smoke any of them. For my money, they beat the pants off the 1926 line.

    Call me crazy I have smoke many Pardons and I found these to be the worse Padron I ever smoked I had the Natural and the Maduro and was disappointed with both with all the good comments I wonder if I just got a bad batch, they gave these to had a bad the Miami Heat when they won the NBA championship. I never had a bad Padron until I smoked the Exclusivo like I sad call me crazy

    Gotta agree with the power of these things (I had the natural – a bit more leathery in flavor). Did not expect such a nicotine rush from a Robusto-size stick. Must be the Padron aging they do on the leaves before turning them into cigars!

    A fantastic cigar!

    Picked up a box of these just last year. Fantastic smoke. This was perhaps the first cigar that really blew me away and got me hooked on cigars.

    There is always room in my humidor for a box of PAM exclusivos… Or two!

    More often than not, this is my go to cigar and is affordable as I do not smoke as often as I would like.

    I agree with everything except the value rating. Padron’s are fantastic cigars, I love all of their lines, but they’re extremely overpriced.
