Padron Family Reserve No. 45 Toro Maduro Cigar Review – This box pressed 6×52 stick features a dark chocolate firmly packed wrapper with a very oily toothy feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, single cap and sweet cocoa aroma. First light reveals a flawless draw with medium bodied smoke showing a very heavy, dense flavor package of deep earth, big pepper and spice especially through the retrohale. The pepper builds on the long finish. The first third comes up to medium-full with an even longer finish. Notes smooth just slightly taking off the edge of the pepper and spice but the notes are still there, dominated by the heavy earth on the draw. The finish lightens up slightly bringing out the cocoa a bit. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes with flavors largely the same just adding a touch of vanilla mainly on the draw. Strength has been creeping up, slightly spinning the room. Ending at 1:10 the last third burned a bit slower with notes going back to just copious deep smooth earth, the tiny cocoa shifting to dark chocolate and the vanilla dropping. Strength continues to increase to the nub, matching medium-full body. This video is sponsored by https://smokeinn.com
