Padron Serie 1926 40th Anniversary Maduro Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×54 box pressed stick features a very dark mottled wrapper with a buttery soft satin feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a squishy pack and faint cedar and floral aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with rich medium bodied smoke production showing a dry black coffee and slightly bitter chocolate on the draw followed by the same chocolate but shifting a tiny bit sweet along with a soft cedar through the finish. The first third burns perfectly and slowly pushing a sweet coffee, damp earth and good bit of pepper through the draw and finish alike. The 2nd third holds the same profile just getting a bit mellower and cutting most of the pepper bite out. By the end of the 2nd third I had to clip it once again, as the torpedo tip was getting clogged and the draw grew tight. Ending at 1:20 with an inch remaining, performance is still great and the flavors the same however the strength rush did indeed come gushing in, way too much for me especially first thing in the morning! Great for those that can better tolerate a medium-full strength cigar though! Thank you again to Kevin Walsh for sending this sample in I greatly appreciate it!
