    This is an exclusive from Holt’s to celebrate their 110th Anniversary (really?). Here’s a blurb from their site:

    To celebrate Holt’s 110th year of business our good friends the Padrons decided to blend a brand new, extra-special cigar exclusively for our customers: The Padron Legacy. Not only is this a momentous release due to the fact the Padron’s rarely produce anything new, but also because the cigar itself is spectacular. An incredibly well-aged blend of all Nicaraguan tobaccos in this gem, providing it with a complex, but balanced, full-bodied flavor boasting layers of earth and leather interwoven with nuts and spices, culminating in a smooth, chocolaty finish.

    Now normally I buy local, but this LE I could not resist!

    So this is still from the Serie 1926 blend, so the only thing really new about this is the size. It features a 5-year aged Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper that is dark, luscious and inviting.

    I punched this cigar because most Padrons have a single cap and often unravel with clipping. The draw is nice and easy as expected.

    I am enjoying this cigar with a home made B-52 cocktail (Kahlua Especial & Starbucks Irish Cream) that should pair perfectly with the maduro wrapper.

    The first few inches are surprisingly strong and peppery. This cigar packs more of a punch than most of the 26s I remember.

    As expected I get loads of chocolate and coffee with a hint of hazelnut. As I get to the halfway point the cigar begins to unravel at the head, which is quite annoying as I tried to avoid this with a punch cut.

    There is a touch of wood on the finish which is nice and long and I get plumes of smoke from every puff.

    The strength comes and goes which is fun, and as I get to the halfway point I get a little licorice in the finish.

    The burn is dead even throughout the entire smoke, which kind of makes up for the unraveling of the wrapper. Yes the wrapper is a pain, but I enjoy this to the nub!
