Padron Family Reserve 50 Years Natural Cigar Review

This 5×54 stick features a brown box pressed wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap, slight mottling and rich cedar aroma. First light reveals a very loose draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke output showing flavors of a peppery tobacco with leather and a deep cocoa on the draw quickly followed by a deeper spicy finish that’s on the short side. The first third very quickly shifts to an incredibly creamy and smooth note with a soft subtle leather joining on the draw, followed by a slightly sweet cedar through the finish, dropping the big pepper right away. The 1/2 way point comes earlier than expected at 30 minutes, bringing a bit of the pepper back but not in a big blast, just with a nice balance of the profile. The cocoa is still there and the soft cream still dominates. Ending at 1:10 the last third really doesn’t change much, just adding a faint coffee to the finish and again bringing the pepper down. No strength!! One of my favorite Padron blends for sure, and a home run once again.
