The Padron No. 90 maduro is presented in a dark red, cream, and gold double band. Like other Padron cigars featuring Maduro wrappers, the wrapper here is very rough , textured, and toothy. The cigar has a slight give when squeezed and seems packed evenly, but is by no means perfectly straight.
Off of the foot are bright, dry notes of cocoa powder, cinnamon, dusty wood, and a savory cured meat note. The draw is fairly relaxed, and a cold draw reveals notes of spice, leather, and earth.
