From first look of the Padilla Reserva Maduro, one might think this is going to provide a fuller strength, full-bodied smoking experience. This was not the case with the Reserva Maduro. This shouldn’t be looked at as a negative as it is possible to make a good maduro with a blend that is medium/medium to full range for strength and body. The Padilla Reserva Maduro accomplishes this well. While I would say this still has a lot of traditional maduro qualities, the retro-hale and the floral spice flavors will differentiate this cigar from others. This is a cigar that I’d recommend for a novice cigar enthusiast looking to graduate to something with medium strength while exploring a maduro blend. I’d also recommend this to a more experienced cigar enthusiast as they will appreciate what this cigar brings to the table. This is a cigar I would definitely smoke again.
