Padron #44 Family Reserve Maduro

While browsing my local shop, I came across one of these and got it for a special occasion. Well, this special occasion rolled around and I finally got to light it up. So here's what I got: Some of these tastes may have been caused by the choice of drink: Magic Hat #9 (incredible brew if you get to try it) Prelight, it smells thick of barnyard and slight cedar. It looks dark with some mottled spots of different shaded browns. Not too oily. Through the first third or so, I get hints of cedar and leather with some pepper like spice mixed in, mostly a very rich tobacco. The smoke itself started off rather thin but after about 3 or 4 puffs, it really started to put out some thick smoke. Into the second third, the taste is still rather consistent- cedar, leather, and spice/pepper mixing in. Chocolate slowly starts to creep in on towards the end of this third. This is where it really starts to smooth out and become what the Padron name is known for (at least by what I understand of them). The final, and best, third- consistency is the name of the game: cedar, leather, spice and hints of chocolate/coco. Overall, this is the best I've had yet. I recommend it to anyone who is willing to pay the price for it and if I had a bit more green, I'd go and buy as many as I could find. Extremely Tasty. CM

    Nice review. Got one in my aging humi. Not sure when I'll get around to setting it on fire, but I'm looking forward to it.
