    Sometimes it can be a difficult decision when opening the humidor. I have worked hard over the years and finally have somewhat of a respectable collection of cigars to choose from. This time however there were no hard choices or debating to be done. My mind and palate we craving this cigar and man was it right on!

    The wrapper on the Padrón 1926 No. 2 Maduro is a gorgeous, silky dark maduro leaf. Just by first glance at the cap you could see the care and precision used to put it on… just perfect. The bands on all of the Serie 1926 and 1964 Padrón cigars are always appealing to the eye. Each has a double band with lovely gold outline and writing and every cigar has its own ID number printed on it. Just another sign of the quality level Padrón puts into their smokes. The pre-light smell portrays an earthy wholeness and the pre-light draw is loose with a rich velvet undertone.

    Pre-light Score: 10 pts.

    The draw on the Padrón 1926 was absolutely perfect! This cigars produces lots of smoke and leaves a pleasant aroma in the room. Halfway in the burn line got a little wavy and there was a distinct coffee bean flavor present.

    Padron 1926 No. 2 Maduro

    As you can see there was a wonderful white ash on this cigar, which is said to be a sign of well aged tobacco. Nearing the end of the smoke the Padrón Serie 1926 No. 2 Maduro still produced an abundance of smoke and continued to burn just a bit uneven.

    Smoking Score: 9 pts.

    Chocolate, spices, coffee… a lot of complex flavors intertwine throughout the smoke. The finish of the Padrón 1926 hinted a little pepper and black cherry sweetness. Very unique and complex leaving me wanting more. This cigar never dried my palate out, in fact I never needed a drink of water or any beverage. I would really like to pair this with a good Kentucky Bourbon and see what the results would be! Euphoria?

    Overall Experience: 10 pts.

    Padron 1926 No. 2 Maduro

    Let me close by saying the Padrón 1926 Serie No. 2 Maduro is definitely a real treat! Maybe even a dessert cigar or for those special occasions. I was most impressed with it and commend Padrón cigars for the quality and attention they put into their products. With that quality and care does come a price. I do consider this cigar to be pricey (any cigar over $12) but well worth it. I guarantee that while you’re smoking the Padrón Seire 1926 No. 2 Maduro that price tag will float away with any worries collected during the day.

      Padron 1926 are quality sticks and well worth trying for a fuller smoke.

      Question: I don’t smoke a lot of cigars but was wondering what adult beverage any of you guys drink while smoking something like this. I do like a smokey, peaty single malt scotch while smoking cigars.
