Review Notes: I've been disappointed by a few Padron Anniversarios in the past. This was the best one yet. Others I got had blemishes or tears in the wrapper,etc. It certainly was a beautiful cigar to behold and look at. There were some blemishes in this wrapper as well, but I won't complain about that. Wrappper was dark and oily. The pre-light aroma was nothing out of the ordinary. The draw was good, but the burn needed some correction at times. The ash on these Padrons are all of the darker variety and kind of spindly looking, but it does hold on for almost 2" even while curving to the right. This cigar is full-bodies and Earthy with some notes of cocoa and cedar. The finish was lingering. Some floral notes and at times some nuttiness. However, i've smoked quite a few cigars that had the same description as what I have just written. IMHO I think the Opus X is much more of a mind-blowing experience than any Padron. It is a much cleaner taste, much more unique in the overall complexity of its make-up. Don't get me wrong, the Anniversario is still a great cigar, but I've had better...both Cuban and non-cuban.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (5) No (13)
