Review Notes: I've had two of these now, one on a very windy day which meant I got a bad burn going. So I picked up another one today to see if I could come up with a more sympathetic review. Unfortunately, I still had burn problems on a clear, windless day after a light with a nice torch lighter. I am pretty convinced the burn problems were not my fault - and even if they were, Iíve seen a cigar self-correct worse issues than these. This *is* a pretty cigar: velvety brown wrapper with nice oil. As for flavor, I got a pretty nice combination of earth, leather and cocoa, with an added bit of cedar this time. The problem is that this is a very subtle cigar. Maybe itís too subtle for me, or maybe Iím just looking for something else. The flavor is very dry, and usually in a maduro I like something a bit stronger, sweeter and / or more peppery. As I got a couple inches into this robusto, I kept expecting a little more oomph or a new flavor or two. No luck. If youíre into mild-to-medium bodied cigars, this might be a great pick, but for me, if Iím going to have a maduro, Iíd much prefer something like the C.A.O. Mx2, which is decidedly medium-bodied, but still has plenty of pepper and bitter chocolate to give it some heft. http://coffeeandcigars.wordpress.com/2007/10/26/padron-maduro-2000/
