Description Consistently ranked among the elite, the 97-rated Padron 1926 was created in celebration of Jose Padron’s 75th birthday. This five to ten-year tobacco blend demands recognition with a full bodied-flavor that’s smooth, complex, and damn hard to resist. Whether you’re looking forward to a milestone birthday, or just anticipating another night loungin' with your feet up, it’s always a good time for a Padron 1926. Often envied but never replicated, the Padron 1926 is about as close to perfect as you’re going to get. 
Review: Cigar Aficionado
It's important to consider Padròn's resume before light up this resplendent cigar. Padrón has been named Cigar of the Year three times (the current record holder). The Serie 1926 cigar has occupied the No. 2 spot twice. And a Padrón cigar has been in the top 10 ever since Cigar Aficionado has been handing out its Cigar of the Year Awards (since 2004). So the Padrón Serie 1926 No. 2 is more than merely a great cigar---it's a legacy of achievement backed by years of consistency ... The smoke is dense, the draw perfect and the cigar emblematic of the inimitable Padrón style José Orlando Padrón perfected over 53 years of making cigars. 
Review: The Stogie Guys
This is not an everyday cigar. But special occasions call for special stogies, and this terrific smoke certainly qualifies for any celebration. For a complex taste that renders it worth every penny, I give the Padrón Serie 1926 No. 6 a rare five out of five stogies.

My Father - La Antiguedad

Cigar La Antiguedad
Wrapper Ecuador
Binder Nicaragua
Filler Nicaragua
Description An expertly blended selection of unique tobaccos were used to create La Antiguedad. A slightly reddish-hued Ecuadorian Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper blankets a double Nicaraguan binder, one Criollo the other Corojo. Inside, a collection of Nicaraguan tobaccos from three prominent growing regions. Aged a minimum of three and a half years, these tobaccos produce a very complex, yet smooth medium to full-bodied profile, and yields notes of cocoa, coffee, leather and a touch of pepper.
Review: The Stogie Guys
The Ecuadorian Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper looks flavorful with its reddish-brown color, notable veins, and oily appearance. Beneath are double Corojo and Criollo binders and filler all grown at My Father-owned Nicaraguan farms. The cigar features a complex combination of oak, chalk, leather, and black pepper. The burn is occasionally uneven, but otherwise construction is solid. Smoke it slowly and it will reward you.
Review: Cigar-Coop
I found this to be one of those cigars that grew on me as each time I smoked it, I picked up something new.  I don’t have a read one way or another what the aging potential will be, so I will leave time to be the final arbiter.  This cigar is going to be appeal to those who like a stronger and fuller cigar profile – and I’d recommend this to a more seasoned cigar enthusiast who fits that mold.  As for myself, this is definitely a cigar I would smoke again.
