Padron Serie 1926 No. 2 (Natural)- The gold standard of Nicaraguan Cigars
The Padron Serie 1926 No. 2 (Natural) is the number 2 cigar of 2017 by Cigar Aficionado. This is the second time it has been number 2 and has been cigar of the year 3 times, which is a record. This cigar best represent everything that is great about Nicaraguan cigars. The cigar wrapper, binder, and filler are all from Nicaragua. The flavor profile is smooth with coffee, slight sweetness, a little wood, and a black tea finish. Because the cigar is aged the strength to me is medium but could be considered medium to full.
The cigar works with many different kinds of experiences. Typically this is a celebration cigar for me. I feel this cigar best pairs with a big red wine, whiskey/ bourbon, or scotch. It’s a sophisticated cigar and I feel not meant for beginners. Padron is the top Nicaraguan cigar company and they have set the standards high for Nicaraguan cigars. If you fell like spoiling yourself do it with a Padron Serie 1926 No. 2 Natural.
