When it comes to the Padron Maduro, the standard by which all Maduros are measured, the Padron process is an interesting one in that Orlando Padron grows his own Maduro wrapper. Therefore the company is able to hand pick only the best Cuban-seed tobacco leaves from their own field. The Maduro wrappers are then handed off to their most skilled Cuban trained torcedores. However, before they are ready for the smoker, the cigars are put aside for a minimum of three years of slow, carefully monitored aging. As a true limited edition cigar, this one is a great one to get a hold of and experience.
