Review Notes: To compare this cigar to any Cuban is doing Cubans and Padrons an injustice. I say this because they are two completely different tastes. That being said, I think that the quality of the rolling and the box press of the Padron is better than most Cubans, but their flavor profile is very unique. In my humidor, I have a good selection of Cubans and a steady stock of Padron 26 & 64ís. Truthfully, I reach for the Cubans a lot more because of their flavor. That being said, while they are excellent, if you have had one Padron, youíve had them all. This can be seen as both good and bad. Good, that the Padron 1964 that I have today, tasted the same as the on that I smoked in 2000, but bad, because the 1926 also tastes like the 1964 I had in 2000. Cuban smokes all come from the same Island and many different brands are made side by side in the same factories. All of the cigars have a certain degree of the Cuban twang taste, but each smoke has a different flavor and experience. As a whole I think Cuban cigars are better than Padrons, but the 1926 series and the 1964 are definitely the closest thing to second in the entire cigar smoking world. A perfect example is my review aboveÖI am not comparing the Padron cigar to Cohiba, or Partagas, I am comparing them to a whole Countryís production. I know there isnít another cigar company out there that could garner this kind of a compliment.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (9) No (6)
