Review Notes: Last nights near 2 hour experience with this well aged stick (1 year) leaves me with the impression that when in doubt go with a well aged Padron. These will never win any beauty contests, but the year of aging smoothed out some harshness I experienced before and left me with a perfect smoking, smooth, slightly sweet, mocha and slight spice flavor profile. For $4 this is a solid value. Nothing mindblowing here. These are just consistently nice and smokeable.

Review Notes: This cigar pleasantly surprised me. Negatives first: It won't win any beauty contests, as these wrappers never seem to get "pretty" (so what).... it's called a churchill but to me it's really a lonsdale with only a 46 ring gauge (again...so what). (Rocky Patel does this with their Vintage Series cigars)... the flavor of this stick started out way too spicey for me (only real negative). The Positives: After the initial disagreeable harsh spiciness she smoothed out nicely into a 2 hour array of medium bodied sweet tobacco, and cocoa, with a hint of spice. The draw was perfect. The burn was ok. The cigar actually got smoother tasting as I smoked this down to a nub. I highly reccomend smoking these slowly. I did (for 2 hours) and I thoroughly enjoyed this smoke. I know I have been guilty in the past of wolfing through sticks. This really does an injustice to a cigars potential to smoothly deliver its flavor profile to you. The last positive I'd mention is the band. I like Padron's small, simple yet stylish and inobtrusive band. I wish more cigar makers would head in this direction with their bands. Too many bands today can fit a grocery list on them. I think I paid $4/stick. If I did, a wonderful value.
