“Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. Some good strong spice during most of the smoke which I enjoyed and then towards the end when the spice calmed down more of the char flavor came out. The last 3rd was nice.” -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
Famous 75th Padrón 1926 Series cigars are made in one size, a 5″ x 54 box-pressed robusto rolled in two wrapper choices – Nicaraguan Habano natural or Nicaraguan Habano maduro. Presented in boxes of 10 cigars, these puros are exquisitely handcrafted with 5-year-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos offering a smooth, creamy, well-balanced smoke brimming with Padrón’s signature earthy-spicy, full-bodied flavor profile. Only 3,000 boxes have been made, and like all Padrón Cigars, they will have individual, serial-numbered cigar bands.
“This cigar offered a fairly solid smoke. The milder flavors transitioned nicely for the first two thirds. Once the leather left during the final third, the cigar developed a bit of harshness while the remaining flavors failed to achieve much of a balance.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
A milder version of the Padrón brand—a Nicaraguan cigar draped in blonde Connecticut-seed wrapper and shaped in the round, rather than pressed square—is poised to be unveiled next month. The cigar, a first for the Padrón family, is meant to appeal to those who tend to smoke milder cigars.
