That’s so true which is why it has always amazed me that Padron’s consistently perform so well.I have found, over the many years I have been purchasing and smoking Cuban cigars, that since they are “hand made” and errors happen... You can take any box of cigars, and some in that box will be tight, some will be loose, and some will be perfect (which is really arbitrary, since most of us like some variance of resistance) You can always tell a beginner, by the quality (or lack) of the roll, but even the most experience rollers will have a bad day every once in a while.
While I believe we are blessed to be smoking the best cigars in the world, remember that human beings are rolling them, and they are not going to be perfect every time, regardless of the factory or the roller...
Like many things.......That’s so true which is why it has always amazed me that Padron’s consistently perform so well.
Well said Brandon! PSM was considered just a somewhat average factory code in 2013 and 2014, while MUO many consider excellent those years even though they both come from the same El Lagitudo factory. Don’t get me wrong Rueben, I bet they smoke great now, but that code never stood out in those years like LUB, MUO, and ULA. They vary from year to year as well. For example, I’ll always drop top dollar when I see something from 2006 & 2007 with the POS factory code.Don't assume that, just because they're rolled at the same factory.
Did two cigar factory tours in Havana... didn't see a single one of these
I believe this is what you mean. It is supposedly used by many. This one happens to be in El Laguito. You Do bring up an interesting question on how does Padron do it when no one else seems to be able to.
