I ve had the Indonesian wrapper version of the 1000 and it was good, but I m not a sweetened end cap type of smoker. The Maduro version is TOTALLY different in my opinion. The Maduro smokes likes a heavy medium in a good way if you like that and is wrapped tighter with what seems like more tobacco. Burn is razor sharp. Don t mistake 1000 to mean light in this case, so if you like a strong medium smoke, this is a good one. The 3000 series has a more complex taste if your willing to spend a little more. I would buy these again.
