Padron 5000 Maduro cigars are handmade with all Nicaraguan-grown and cured tobaccos semi-pressed to a beefy 56 ring! This full-flavored cigar teems with richness, complexity and earthy essences of coffee bean, cocoa, and nutmeg with a long, sweet finish. A real mouthful, not to be missed.
This one was quite different than the other Padrons. Not as sweet, but still very enjoyable. Medium strength throughout with a nice leather taste with very sublte hints of sweetness. Nothing close to the sweetness of the 6000 or anniversary series. Very smooth smoke. Perfect size in my opinion. Not spicy or peppery at all. If you don't like sweet and Peppery, this is the smoke for you. You will fall in love with this cigar. I on the other hand will take all sweetness I can get, so I will stick to the 6000 or anniversary series. Everything about this cigars screams premium. This one gets high ratings from me. Note: this one took well over an 1 1/2 hours to finish.
The 5000 was a smooth smoke all the way through. It wasn't too strong. I really like this cigar. And, if I had to pick one cigar to go forward with. It will be this cigar.
I'll definitely be buying more of these. A beautiful cigar with a great draw, strong ash, and full bodied taste without assaulting the senses. Great slow burn, too. Didn't have to relight it once!
