    This is the ugly date with a great personality of the cigar world. It’s not much to look at, but the flavors are wonderful. Earthy with chocolate, coffee, and pepper undertones make this a steal at around $80 per box of 26. The medium bodied smoke can be had at any time of day. Especially pleasing paired with a Chocolate Stout or a Dr. Pepper. This is a must for my humidor. Highly recommended.

    Thumbs Up!

      I can’t speak highly enough of this cigar.The price/quality ratio is second to none from anywhere in the world and quite honestly if it were twice the price I’d still buy them.Always expertly constructed and always very,very flavourful.Spicy pepper in the opening which settles in to chocolate,coffee,occasional notes of things like cinnamon and even a caramel creaminess in there sometimes.The absolute definition of a satisfying smoke that you can just kick back with and relax after a day’s work and the one cigar that I make sure to never run low on.

      Agree that the “rough” appearance of this stogie is outweighed by the wonderful notes of cocoa and coffee, with a earthy undertone. Great on the burn line and solid white ash; remains not bitter til the last. My everyday “go-to’ cigar.

      Bought 50 after an initial purchase of 24. Rough yes, ugly… no. Great taste for $4ish. My new go to daily. Used to be Cuban Coronas, but like the taste of these mucho mejor. bb

      Agree with every aspect of the review except for the “ugly” part. I think this cigar has a beautiful simplicity about it…no frills! This is such a consistent smoke, it’ll NEVER let you down. And the price, OMG you can’t beat it. If you haven’t tried one yet, do yourself a favor and do so ASAP!!!

      Hmm, I don’t think it’s ugly. I’ve never actually seen one, just here on the picture, but I think it has a good color.
      Something about the maduros, I always want to smoke them, I usually have great luck with them.

      Thing looks like a bar of chocolate! Glad to hear they are tasty.

      This review was right on! I got a Dr. Pepper and one of these babies, and it was an enjoyable Smoke! Padron is very consistent!

      A cheap and tasty date, indeed. Who cares about ugly when you’ve got a cigar that delivers like this one. These are very flavorful and make a great everyday smoke. Pairs really nice with a strong coffee.

      In a recent and short stay in New York, I stumbled upon these wonderful cigars at the Barclay Rex store. At $4 each, I couldn’t help but try one on the spot. What a great surprise! The construction was absolutely flawless. Perfect draw and burn. And the flavors were just wonderful, with absolutely no hint of bitterness until the stub. Needless to say, I grabbed a few of them and brought them home! The review couldn’t be better.
