Padron Series Churchill Cigar Review
This 6 7/8×46 stick features a dark brown, lumpy and fragile wrapper with a few small veins, tight invisible seams, rough cap, slight oil sheen and firm but light pack with a very rich cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with decent smoke output showing medium-bodied flavors of a deep creamy peppery dry tobacco with a long warm finish. The first third is still on the milder side of things, with the typical Padron flavors starting to come through with a smooth creamy tobacco taking center stage. 25 minutes in the ash drops off and flavors start to wake up, pushing medium-full body with some smooth coffee, cocoa and nuttiness, with a zingy peppery tobacco finish that’s smooth and short. Ending around 50 minutes the last third ramped up the chocolate and coffee notes bringing the typical Padron aged flavors as well, with a smooth silky finish. Thank you very much to True Tobacco for providing this sample for review!
