This cigar was named #4 of Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of 2010.
"The Padron family has created quite the tradition by coming out with a new Padron Family Reserve every year to commemorate the company’s history. The Padron Family Reserve No. 45 Maduro was [Cigar Aficianado's] 2009 Cigar of the Year—this is the natural version of that very same cigar. It has the same dimensions and suggested retail price, but the lighter wrapper gives the cigar a different flavor. While the considerable kick of the maduro is informed by hearty, resonant coffee, cocoa and spice flavors that saturate the palate, the natural is a bit more mellow, with flavors of cocoa bean and earth on the palate. The cigar is quite balanced and exceptionally flavorful. It’s impossible to exaggerate how well the Padron family has done in [Cigar Aficianado's] Top 25—three times the company has had a Cigar of the Year, and the Padrons have never failed to have a cigar in our top five. It’s an impressive show of consistency that no other company can claim."
