Review Notes: I just wasn't blown away. I don't know why, but the flavors, although very good, weren't intense enough for me. The usual padron flavors of cocoa, coffee and nuts were there along with some leathery notes and a little spice, but smoother, more complex, and more refined than the regular padron line. The aroma was like coffee with floral tones, but again, toned down and a little too subtle for my taste. The burn needed several corrections -a first for me with this line- but was consistent with a perfect draw. Overall, a terrific smoke, but I don't know if the price is justified for me. It might have been the San Cristobal de la Habana Muralla I smoked 2 hours prior, but this cigar just didn't blow me away like I thought it would. I rated this particular cigar at 79 points, but the line usually gets 85+.
