262 Paradigm is a medium to full bodied cigar. The construction is fantastic. A perfect draw. The ash burned evenly, white and solid. The test was mild with a faint hint of citrus, later mixing with notes of chocolate and then coffee. I really enjoyed this one. Now if I can remember where I bought it… It was expensive at about $9
I thought this tid-bit was interesting: February of 1962 is when President Kennedy signed pen to paper to put in to effect an embargo that would keep us from enjoying Cuban cigars. Of course Kennedy asked an aide to get him 1000 cuban cigars before the embargo took effect. The aide brought Kennedy 1200 Petit H. Upmann cigars, his favorite cigar brand and size. So they decided to put the month and year together and changed their name to 262.
