Padron Serie 1926 80th Anniversary Maduro Perfecto Aged 10 Years Cigar Review – This is an original release aged 10 years sent in by viewer Tab (sorry I said Tan in the vid man). Thank you very much! This 6.75×52 perfecto box pressed stick features a very dark chocolate thick toothy wrapper with a firm pack, oily feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and faint musty cocoa aroma. First light reveals a very tight draw with minimal mild bodied smoke with flavors of a slightly sweet hay and short clean finish. The first third burns a bit wonky with a better draw. Body is up to mild-medium with lingering musty sweet cocoa flavors followed by a creamy caramel and long soft finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 50 minutes burning very well holding a solid ash. The draw is perfect, body is up to a medium and surprisingly there is a mild-medium strength coming in there with it. Flavors are a musty sweet cream with a damp earth and slight pepper zing joining in the long finish. Ending at 1:30 to the nub, flavors at the very end got warm and washed out but showed no further changes through the last third to that point.
