Review Notes: With all the hype and chatter about these Padrons, I guess my expectations were built a little too high. Mine had a split in the wrapper near the foot, and it burnt uneven most of the time. It was beautiful to look at, with the milk chocolaty looking wrapper and that fat box-press shape. I expected the flavor to be absolutely heavenly, but turned out to be quite Earthy. Draw was a little firm, even via bulls-eye punch. The ash was dark and skimpy looking, but managed to cling on for 1.5". There were some notes of chocolate and some nuttiness. Sweet spices at times. Finish was pretty long. Don't get me wrong, this is a great quality cigar, i've just had better IMHO...both cuban and non-cuban, some of them at half the price of this. I'd certainly take the Opus X over this any day.
