    So, I picked up my first two Padrons a few weeks ago. I fired up the Natural today, and was kind of underwhelmed. For the record, it's been sitting at around 66%. All I got from it was a lot of strength and a strong, mineral water-like taste in the first third. The second third was a bit...

    So today was a perfect day for a cigar. A cool 60 degrees, clear skies and not a gust of wind to speak of. I decided to light up an Arturo Fuente Rosado Sungrown that I've been wanting to try. The cigar was rolled beautifully and had a gorgeous band. First time having one of these and I was...
