Hola Aficionados!
I smoked my first non Cuban last week, it was given to me by a good friend from Churchill Cigar in Cayman. Padron 5000 Maduro with a ring size of 56 ( I though it was 52, I guess bec. it was box pressed) good length of
5-1/2" Good solid construction, though a lot spongier compare to Cubans.
Smell is not like Cubans of course, it is very earthy kind of smell, not too much aroma cuban like smell.
So I'm like 'let me try and discover what is padron all about'
it cut beautifully, lighted it and start to burn good. It din't smell like a promising sigar right away but after like 5 mins. smoking it, I start raising my eye brows. I'm like 'WOW! this is good' Then I started enjoying the earthy kind of leathery sweet taste almost halfway. Then it start giving a hint or I guess for a while a Monte no.2 in with a Nicaraguan earthy tone.
And most of all, this cigar burnt beautifully I didn't do anything at all, just enjoy amoking it. I was surprised that it actually burnt better to a lot of Cubans I've been smoking before.
It's a good non Cuban cigar for me, I grabed a box of this and will aged for at least another 3 months and start exploring the non cuban cigars...
Just wondering, what else non cubans you guys will recomend? SALUD!

Your reviews are great thanks. I can't believe no one had reviewed these before. Nice fatties. You and Coppertop should do some domestic splits. :D
Amigo I would love too! but what can I do, i'm in cayman Islands.
A lot of time that I envy you guys for being so close to each other (locations and well I guess to each other too) every time I heard about herfings, box splits and all the activities up there.
I guess I'll just try to enjoy the cayman average 85F temp. Sunshine, clear water, easy slow moving life style, Tax Free and lots of Cuban Cigars :D ;) :cool: Da Klugs, It'll be a pleasure smoking with you. Salud!
