    Padilla doesn't do much for me. They are ok but never stand out in any way. Never a reach for cigar when I have other options. I only burn them up when I am walking the dogs or am ignoring the cigar while I read.

    Normally I would agree. But... These Padillas were rolled by Pepin, prior to the "breakup"... Anything Pepin buys into, is very decent at minimum IMHO. Especially after it has been laid up for a while. I am still hanging onto an old Miami 8&11 as well.

    My budget doesn't allow them often, but the Padron 64 and the 26 are probably my two favorite cigars. Like, if I were to buy a box of cigars, and money were no object, it would be one of those two. Probably the 26 since it's the more expensive one, and we're talking in hypotheticals. They are just amazing. This one (a 64, as you can see) has been aging for a little over a year, too, so it's that much better. Padron claims that their cigars are already aged, and therefore the customer doesn't need to age them, but I disregard that and age them anyway. :)

    Nothing like lighting a $20 bill on fire and sitting in a state of elevated bliss for an hour or so. :ohyh:

    Partial to blondes.

    Been looking forward to trying these. Love the spicy, earthy aroma coming off the foot. The maddy especially. I know the Trav well, love 'em. This particular one appears to have some rest time on it (wrapper dated 1/4/2012). I think I'll wait til 1/4/13 to burn it.

    I have my minions working on the response Marker.

    LOVE that cigar. Have loved them since they were all the rage in 90's. One of my favorite all-time cigars for sweet and creamy. The Maddy's too.

    Smoking a ridiculously oversized and exceeding well aged Partagas from a kind PSF'er.

    I am sure the label is incorrect and that it is perfectly ok to have ;-)

    OK. CAO Cam Anni. Fantastic. CAO Maddy Anni. One notch below. It's a little sweet, not quite as creamy. That cam wrapper really does the trick.

    The Cam's were my first love. The Maddy's will probably grow on you.

    Oh there will be more of each in the future. Smoked the cam first. What a great depth of flavor, nice finish. I nubbed it an it never got bitter, just kept coming.

    Tempus Maduro. Last one of these in my humidor. They're great, but I'm not going to bust my hump to get more. My strategy with cigars has become something like, buy few cigars, but only buy really good ones. This page is gonna be seeing a lot more Padron and Illusione, methinks.

    Edit: Upon further review, that sounds a bit narrow minded and/or snobbish. To clarify, what I mean is that cigar smoking is an opulent thing for me, pure tobacco hedonism. So, while those brands will certainly not be the only ones I'll buy, I plan to try to buy a few really high end smokes instead of a bunch of medium priced smokes, and just smoke fewer cigars. I see a cigar as a treat, so I want to make sure that wheni smoke one, it is indeed a treat. When I think about it, though, Mi Amor is a reasonably priced smoke, and it is definitely a treat to smoke one of those.

    This stream-of-consciousness post brought to you by my always-hyperactive mind.

    Had an Aging Room Quattro yesterday. It was really good and had a very unique flavor. My one complaint is that the draw was a bit too open.
