Review Notes: The regular Padron line can have some inconsistencies in wrapper color and intensity. I bought a box of these in May 1998 and it was one of those absolutely perfect boxes in every regard; wrapper, construction, draw. I had heard once that "sometimes" the regular line would get some wrapper leaf from the annies when there wasn't enough to complete a run. I have no way to verify but these wrappers were flawless as in it just does not get any better. These were POWerful out of the box. Not green or underfermented, just kick your head in strength. In 1998 I had the same 35-40 box humi I have now and knew how to recognize aging potential. I had two or three a year for the next 5 years and although complexity grew they were still as strong as anything I had ever had (yes I smoke cubans too). Anyway the last 6 of these sat from 2004 (chemo-not smoking related) until I dug them up in June last year. No other smoke I have had in 20 years compared to these remaining few. If it was the CA Connoiseurs corner I can't imagine anything less than 100 points. So many of the descriptions you read about-the black cherry, earthy, leather, spice and on and on. Still very full but no edges and in a cigar this size down to the last inch. Last one smoked 01/26/08; I damn near cried. What good does this do anyone? Nothing I suppose, but I had to share. Far surpasses any Padron Anniv I have had, and they have been many. Happy hunting boyos.
