Padron Serie 1926 – Cigar Review

Padron Serie 1926

This is a cigar review of a Padron Serie 1926 by Padron Cigars. The size chosen for this review is the No. 9 (Robusto). This cigars composition consists of a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper with all Nicaraguan fillers. This is a medium to full bodied smoke that retails around $19.70.


This is Padron 1926 Serie is milk chocolate in color with no veins and invisible seams. 


Beautiful aromas of cedar and chocolate radiate from the wrapper and foot engulfing the nasal passage. The cut we used is the straight cut. The cold draw produces notes of cocoa.

After Toast:

First Third – Cedar, Cocoa, nuts, spice and pepper all hammer the palate here to kick off this smoke. This is a full bodied smoke with a sharp burn and ash holds through the third.

Second Third – A nutty cocoa and spice really develop nicely in this third. The profile is rich on the palate moving really full bodied. The burn remains sharp and ash 

Final Third – The nuts and spice carry this one home for the finale with the cocoa moving towards a finishing note. The burn remains sharp and body full. 

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Duckhorn 3 Palms

Scotch – Glenlivet 18

Overall Experience:

The Padron Serie 1926 is a fantastic smoke with a really pronounced and distinct flavor profile. The cigar produced a great amount of palate enriching smoke which always makes for a fantastic smoke experience. With all the masculine notes pounding the palate right from start to finish this one is a home run and worth the price tag.
