    Padron and Van Winkle

    Tonight I am enjoying a Padron 3000 Maduro and a glass of VW 10yo 107. The Padron had a nice, but almost bitter taste that is offset by the sweet-smoothness of the Van Winkle. The padron 3000 is a nice robusto/rothchilde size that I prefer. I am picking up lots of coffee/espresso notes and something that tastes like an "Egg McMuffin" in this one. The perfect breakfast cigar .This adds a nice "smokey" woodsey taste to the fruity bourbon. A nice pair!

    Jeff, that has to be the first time I've ever heard anyone say egg mcmuffin in a cigar review!! just shows how different we all are. I love Padron 300 maddies with Knob creek. That coffe/expresso flavor is what I get from them too. That just goes well in my mouth the KC. I'll have to give one a try with the vw 10yo 107!! Thansk for the review!!

    It was just one of those things that come to you. While in the middle of my cigar, my mouth started watering and tasted like I had just eaten one. I think I was getting a "meaty" taste that reminded me of the Canadian Bacon they use. And something sort of tasted like an egg. Go figure. Now I'm hungry Do I head for McDonalds or the humidor

    I think we'd all just better fire up the still. I like Padron Maduros of all sizes. What's not to like?

    Come to your senses, man. Head for the liquor cabinet. A little Stagg will wash that after taste right out of your mouth.
