After Toast:

First Third – ​Black pepper pounds the palate at the start. Followed by an immediate chocolate note a minute or two after lighting. Strong but mellow at the same time. Really nice balance of flavors. Burn is pristine. The ash is gray and holds strong through the third.

Second Third – ​Nuts and chocolate kick off this third. The pepper is barely present at this point of the cigar. Medium to full-bodied at this point. The ash fell at the mid-point of the cigar. Burn remains pristine.

Final Third – ​​Chocolate remains the dominant note but pepper kicks up strong in the final third. Burn remains pristine.

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Macallan 18

Wine – Duckhorn The Discussion

Overall Experience:

The Padron 1926 Serie No. 90 Maduro is a phenomenal work of art by the late José Padrón. A true masterpiece in their legendary line of cigars. I first had this cigar about 6 years ago with some good friends at a business venture and fell in love with it. Years later as I write this review, the flavors are as consistent as they were back then. This cigar is for true aficionados to enjoy on a special occasion. This occasion is to celebrate the life of one of one of the patriarchs of the cigar industry. Rest in peace José.
