Mi Barrio

They're supposedly a small batch production from DPG, aged for a full year before release, and offered in limited quantities. Anybody had them, & if so what did you think?

    If you were choosing between them and the Padron '26 (my yardstick for the best legal cigars avaliable to the US market), which do you pick?

    pardon without hesitation.

    the mi barrio is a good smoke for friends or around the fire or on a tuesday where nothing special has happened. i would not feel bad smoking them on any day at all. dont get me wrong, the mi barrio is good, but not even in my top 5 of DPG. and for that matter, not even close to my top 20 cigars.

    Never had one, but judging by what I've read, my love for DPG, and the pricing I'm buying a box to store any day. In regard to Padron 26 though, cost wise i cannot see comparing the two. I am in love with the regular Padron's though and the 64/26 maddy's, but not the naturals.

    Yeah, I haven't had but a single encounter with the Padron, but it was a 26 maddy and I almost don't need to smoke a natural, it was that good!

    Yep, the Padron '26 maduros are the best cigars we have legal access to here in the US. That's my yardstick for determining how "box worthy" any cigar is. One of these days, I'm going to break down and buy a box of the #2 '26 maduros, but I'll probably have a fever when I do it.

    Haha I know. I saw it in there. It lost out to two others that I wanted to try out. I could've done a third swap in the pass but I didn't wanna be greedy. I'll get around to trying these out sooner or later.
