My cigar of choice is padron 7000. This cigar, when lighted properly, burns with a black ash, burns unevenly and must be monitored throughout the smoke. It burns hot up the middle of the shaft like a cheap cigar. My first experience needed to be put out shortly after lighting. I thought maybe it was because all I had were stick matches. Nope, it is an inferior cigar with a hefty price. I'm at least thankful that this website sells it less expensively. But it is still a 10 dollar stick and still burns like I described. I say move on.

In my journey to figure out what in the heck I like to smoke, what notes can I detect, and what else can I do to enjoy this new hobby, I was ready to step up with a more expensive, higher quality smoke than some of the earlier budget choices allowed me. That was a good decision. I instantly picked up the pepper notes, along with a bit of an earthy note. As I smoked it worked in some creamy flavors, and the blend made it an exciting, stronger bodied cigar. I started with one, and it was so good I went with a box next. Still one of the better decisions I've made. Yet another Alec Bradley home run for me.
