So the Fall weather is upon us once again here in the Appalachians. Where is Appalachia? Where men are men and women are too sometimes. Where a dental plan should be renamed a tooth plan. Where camo is always badass. The leaves are turning colors on the ground now. Folks are bundling up when they venture out and smoking cigars is becoming a frigid hobby. Speaking of frigid, have you ever accidentally put items in the refrigerator that don’t belong i.e. remote controls, sunglasses, ice cubes, nunchucks?
These Padrons tend to be rather “rough around the edges”. The caps looks like they were just thrown on without precision. It’s a very veiny cigar. It’s firm and somewhat dry. The small, simple band also creates the impression of simplicity. Too bad they can’t wrap a band like that around all my missions.
Wow! This cigar is like smoking a leather couch. The reason I know that taste is because I witnessed many couches on fire after a West Virginia University football game victory in Morgantown. “Where greatness is learned and couches are burned”. Subtle hints of sweetness and occasional woodsy flavors peek through… but mostly plenty of leathery notes.
Lots of smoke from this one. Great to launch smoke rings with. Thick, “chewy” smoke. Fantastic!
A beautiful cigar for a beautiful day. Great flavors, great construction, great ash (even though the wind was blowing something fierce), and great smoke volume. I would highly recommend this cigar! I am especially fond of the Padron 2000 also.
Agent Tip #6: If you decide to sing along to your favorite song in the car while on a mission, avoid artists like Duran Duran and Men At Work. Oh, and roll up your windows.
