Review Notes: First the good...outstanding smoothness, never harsh and never bitter. It starts fairly strong with a nice maduro and cocoa flavor, then drops in intensity to a medium to medium+ bodied smoke. (Those who scream it is FULL BODIED must have never smoked an LGC series R, Rocky Patel Edge, La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel M, Partagas Serie D #4, or anything that these days is truly full bodied.) The quality of flavor is refined and absolutely the best in class for maduro, none of the occasionally funky tanginess that many maduros show. Great draw, ash and burn. Now the bad...maduro, cocoa and little else. The complexity just wasn't there, not compared to other cheaper Padrons (1964 Monarca M, Principe M, etc). Very little in the coffee/oaky/toasty/earthy/leathery or other departments. In summary, if what they were shooting for was the best maduro flavor around they got it. If they wanted the best maduro *cigar* around, this one is far short.
