When it comes to the Padron Delicias Maduro Gran Corona (4 7/8 x 46), the standard by which all Maduros are measured, the Padron method is unique in that Orlando Padron grows his own Maduro wrapper. This allows the company to hand cultivate and hand pick only the best Cuban-seed tobacco leaves in their own field. The Maduro wrappers are then entrusted to their most skilled Cuban-trained torcedores. However, before being boxed the cigars are put aside for a minimum of three years of slow, carefully monitored aging. While there may not be many of the great Padron Maduro cigars, what there are available are truly remarkable.
