Review Notes: It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. I truly wanted to make this my ideal quintessential cigar-I was let down. The appearence and draw were wonderful, but at $15.00 a stick- this should have tasted a lot better. I aged this for 3+ months in my humidor and I thought that that would allow all of the greatness of this cigar come through. This cigar started out like burnt toast, then mellowed out in to a mellow-medium bodied cigar. About halfway through, it showed some creaminess and a few caramel notes. That was the best part. Other than that it was simply an ok cigar with a $15.00 price tag. Last week, I had a simple Punch cigar aged 4 months and it was a lot better tasting than this. This cigar was complex and did change flavors throughout the entire cigar, but none of the flavors were outstanding. Honestly, the Gran Habano No. 5 is a lot better at $4.00 a stick. I would recommend a the 3000 or 2000 rather than this Padron. Sorry, I really wish I could recommend this one.
