Big Perm is on a distinguished road
Default 1964 Padron Diplomatica

Splurged a bit, buddy recommended this cigar, purchased for $15 at the B and M next door to our hangout. Impressive presentation, like the band and the construction, fairly mild and smooth pre-light aroma, enjoyed at our cigar bar with some scotch.

First third - a bit unimpressive at the price, smooth, but just ok

Second third - this is where it comes into it's own, delicious and smooth smoke, great flavors

Finish - same as the second third, great smoke, excellent finish to the nub

Overall - presentation, band and construction are impressive.....solid pre-light aroma....at the start, a bit disappointing, but comes into it's own after about 15 minutes and solid to the finish. I would put is at about a 7 at this price, it's a good smoke and worth the money/experience.
