Quick Smoke: TNT Alternative of the Padrón Anniversary Gran Corona Maduro

19 Feb 2007

We usually only post Quick Smokes on Saturdays and Sundays, but – since it’s President’s Day and we have the day off – today feels like the weekend to us. So here’s another brief take on a single cigar.

Emulating the Padrón Anniversary line is no small task, but TNT Cigars does a respectable job with their Gran Corona Maduro alternative. This six inch by 46 ring gauge stogie is a surprisingly mild Nicaraguan puro. While it doesn’t have anywhere near the flavor of the real thing, the construction is pleasingly similar: easy draw, perfect burn, strong ash. Even better, you can get one of these sticks for $1.30 apiece when you buy in bulk (about one tenth the price of the real deal).

Verdict = Buy.
