"not bad for the price"
I saw this cigar a the local shop for 2.55 and decided to try it... before lighting it, it smelled like a chocolate bar, but after lighting the first quater of an inch was kinda harsh then it smoothed out with a slight sweetness. It wasn't a bad price and not a bad smoke, but just not a complex as I wanted it to be, it was kinda flat, maybe I need a bigger ring guage to experience more complexity, although LGC maduros are complex even with the smaller ring gauges. Overall not bad for the price, but there are better maduros out there at a reasonable price too.

"One of the very best values in Valuedom"
I buy the Padron Maduro Londres in boxes and also as singles. It is one of my three "go to" gars. Once in a long while I've come upon one that was a tad inconsistant in draw/burn and, I'll admit, some will not pass the "snob" test in the "Looks Dept.", but they always score a "10" in the Taste category and I smoke for taste so, for me, the Londres is a cigar that is top-notch just any day of the year thank you very much. If it were a guitar it would be a Martin 12-string circa 1970.

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.

I've enjoyed every one of these that I've smoked. Full bodied flavor but not harsh.

I love all of the Padrons and I was lucky enough to get a box of these for $43. Smooth, nutty and just the right size to squeeze into the work day.

"Full but very smooth."
I'd give it a 9.0 on a scale of 10.0, perfect size that doesn't take all day. Rich, full flavor, only bites if you are constantly drawing on it.

"Great taste and draw make this an excellent cigar."
Construction, taste, and draw make this cigar a good buy at resonable prices. Way pay more for less of a smoke. Great everyday cigar. I always come back to Padron no matter what else I try.
