This is a fantastic cigar. It has a very smooth draw and pleasing aroma, and the price was right. Highly recommeded if you are new to cigars or a seasoned smoker. I'm looking forward to trying some other PADRON oferrings.
Not impressed yet. Ordered a box because I used to smoke Padron years ago. The first one I tried I had to smoke hard to get it to burn. Like appearance, flavor and taste. A good cigar that s rated 85 or above should smoke itself with just a little help from the owner.
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.
I love these corticos. I tried them out at a local shop and liked them. I wanted to buy a 36 pack to save some cash. Half the cigars i got have hollow spots in the middle making them unsmokable. You can clearly see spots where the tobacco does not exist when you light the cigar. you get all the air and no smoke. I am sure there is a name for this but i dont know it. my cigars were also extremely dried out. Will not be purchasing from here again. They also did not credit me for damaged cigars that arrived with these. poor retailer IMO.
Moving away from my normal diet of General Cigar products, I find myself smoking more Padrons these days. The 6000 was a very good cigar, lots of smoke, consistent flavour, great aroma, no ungodly hot boxing. Smoked these puppies right to the roach like the doobies of old. I m not going to even pretend to detect notes of leather, coffee, wood or whatever, but I know a smooth, good tasting cigar when it s in my kisser...and this is one of them.
I m a bit new to the cigar scene. I tend to spend around $6-10 a cigar. So far, the Padron 7000 natural or maduro, ive had both is my favorite... and it s not really that close. I had been smoking cigars during the NFL games with a few friends. I brought over the Padron 7000 and it won everybody over. They didn t want to smoke anything else. Since Im not an expert, the only thing I can really say is it is a really smooth smoking cigar. Full of flavor, but not overbearing. The only disappointing part is when it s gone!
I love these cigars! I got turned on to them a while back and cannot stop smoking them. For my money I have not found a better cigar at this price point. If you really want to be blown away, buy a box or two of these and forget about them for a few years. Prepare to be amazed at how much an already stellar smoke transforms into something phenomenal. Given the option I will take one of these with a nicely yellowed cellophane sleeve over any of the anniversary lines each and every time.
Sticks all tasted good but wrappers condition are not good; most of them are damaged and cracked. Only 2 of them are undamaged. Don't know if they put seconds in samplers or sticks being damaged inside the wooden box due to non-cellophane in shipping.
Flavor could be richer. It burned well and all that. Just not what I'd hoped for. The draw was sort of loose also.
Really like them. I have been smoking the Corticos but Londres are a Cortico 1.5 They are like the bigger brother. Totally recommend. Great taste, burn, and flavor.
I got a 4-pack of these to try as I love the 1964 Anniversary Exclusivo but can't justify $11-12 for an everyday smoke. Sure, the 3000 has most of the rich flavors I enjoy in the 1964, but it's very predictable and lacking in complexity. There are many more interesting full-bodied $6 cigars on the market - San Lotanos, JdNs, La Flor Dominicanas and various Garcias and Bradley's spring to mind.
