Now, I m by no means a cigar aficionado, but I know what I like, and I know what I don t. I ve had good cigars and bad cigars and this is simply the best I ve ever had. Construction is perfect, draw is perfect and although I can never put my finger on the flavors I get from a cigar, I know I liked the taste of this and it definitely changed a few times throughout. Once I get a little more experienced and save enough money, this will likely be my first box purchase.
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.
