padron fumas

i smoked a H. Uppman 2000 earlier and would have rather taken a turd from the toilet and lit her up. Now i partly blame this on the cigar being way over humidified. I have taken a puff from a friends 2000 on the golf course and been fine with it. the point of the story is i decided when i got home i would burn a '64 anniversary padron.
warning: i may be slightly partial to padron, and may also be a padron addict....
on the other side of the cedar from my stack of '64s was a pair of fumas. i thought well it can't be bad its just short filler from all of my favorites. This cigar actually turned out to be very good. the ash held 2 1/2 inches which shocked me. the main reason i liked this cigar is that it had all of my favorite padron flavors.... all of them twice. this cigar changes flavors like madonna changes religions. tomorrow i will buy 2 boxes... one to smoke and one to age to see what might happen. this cigar is a little more mild than any of the others in the padron line, which is why ill be pushing it on my friends who weren't big on padron before.
i would give it an 8 based on the fact that it only costs $2, changes flavor often, and lasts a while.

If you like padron it is an excellent smoke.

Being a lover of Padron, I try to keep a box of Fuma, a box of 2000, and 1/2 box of 3000, and a 1/2 box of Churchill- in my Humi's all of the time.
This puts my average cost per smoke @ $2.75 per Padron.If I smoke 100 per month- a reasonable cigar budget.
I fine the above Padron line to be most consistent in product for taste and burn qualities- lenght of smoke.It just fits my taste and needs.
I don't spend money to flash my ego.
I value performance not money spent.
For example, a co-worker wanted to buy a Lexus. I recommended that he test drive a Toyota Avalon and compare.
He agreed that the Avalon was a luxury drive- like Lexus, and purchased the Avalon. he saved over $20,000. The label did not say Lexus and he did give up some features but not worth 20K.
Happy guy every month he writes a car payment.
In conclusion,I would with respect read Padron the riot act.They are too cheap for their lower lines.
When the Old Man goes, I predict a change upward in pricing.
In local mom & pop stores in Miami, one can buy Fumas for $.80 each, but only four at a time.Take it to the bank.

Is that what they mean by herfing? Not that there is anything wrong with that.
