In my opinion, this cigar is not refined enough, it lacks personality. You won’t recognise Padron Delicias Maduro if you were to smoke it blindfolded.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★☆☆
Not quite impressed by the appearance, however, it’s rather well filled and soft to the touch. The wrapper is satisfying.

Construction : Rating: ★★★½☆
The pre-draw was fine, with touches of sugarcane. Easy draw and regular burn. The smoke was very hot.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★☆☆
The stick is contradictory – the flavor is certainly powerful (even overwhelming), but it’s not generous enough. The bitterness is present throughout the smoking session, with strong arboreal and vegetal flavors. These flavors become more tender in the second third, but I felt that my mouth was slightly drawn in the last third. Not a very pleasant sensation, I must admit..

Value : Rating: ★★★★☆
Padron cigars are not expensive, this one can be bought for $3-4/piece. I think it’s exactly what the cigar’s worth.

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★½☆
I felt that Padron Delicias Maduro were a bit rough. However, I am pretty sure that a lot of people will like this cigar, since it’s tonicizing and powerful.
