Customer Reviews of “Padron”
“I tried Padron cigars in the 1960’s after the Miami cigar stores no longer had any Havana cigars left, following the Cuban embargo. I found the Padrons then did not have the full, rich flavor of the Havana’s I was trying to replace – although I returned to the Padron store several times because I liked the man who sold them. When I heard people praising them in later years, I assumed they appealed to those who liked mild cigars. A friend then gave me a Padron 1964 anniversary and I found it better, but still not rich or full enough for my taste, while being very expensive. Now, however, I have tried the Padron 6000 Maduro torpedo and found it an excellent cigar, with a full rich taste and aroma, and that intensified flavor that truly great cigars have as you reach the end. It actually tastes very much like the much more expensive H. Upmann Havana Especial Reserva 2009 Maduro torpedo cigars I bought in Paris last month, and is also quite similar to my favorite cigars: the Oliva Cain Maduro torpedos – although the latter cost slightly less for larger (6x54 versus 5.5x52) and longer lasting torpedos. However, if these Padron 6000’s were the only cigars I could get, I could be quite happy with them.”

“Just had one on the beach. It was as perfect as the day. It's December and it's cold everywhere but here. So I imagine it's hard to enjoy one without a man cave except here . So come on down .nothing better than a Padron , a sunset and a cold frosty one. 1st rounds on me so c,mon down”

“Palmas Maduro: Very easy to light. Excellent construction draw and burn. Flawless white ash and heavy smoke output. Medium strength with medium to full flavors. Slight tobacco sweetness on the lips with flavors of deep semi-sweet cocoa, dark coffee and caramel. The occasional slight black pepper tingle with the medium length finish after each draw. Slight strength increase at half way point but medium to full flavors remain the same. A very consistent cigar.”

“Very very good cigar any time of day. I've only sampled the maduro so far. The 6000 and 7000 series. Will likely be ordering 5000 series in the future. Good construction, excellent burn. The 7000 lasted me about an hour and twenty. Burn line was razor sharp. Ash held about an inch and a half before needing to be discarded. Probably would have been longer but I couldn't put it down. The caramel sweetness remained through the entire burn. Not too much pepper, just enough to know its there. It's a good sweet and spicy stick with a medium flavor and body eventually progressing to medium to full in the second half. Coffee notes throughout. Just overall a good smoke. I feel I can hand these to my regular smoke buddies as well as to first time smokers and have good results. For the price they'll find a place in a more weekly rotation rather than a daily. I really enjoyed the flavor and body of this smoke.”

“....I just didn't care for the flavor it produced. The cigars I have in my corner are ones like San Cristobal including the Elegancia, My Father, Camacho. most from the Garcia family, Diesel, Davidoff Corizone and Double R, and ones that are not expensive at all such as the Indian Tabac Classic. For me, the Padron had a harsh flavor that only got worse the further you smoked. In addition, on the 5 pack I ordered two of them had really bad burn problems. After trying to keep one lit I finally took my cutter and cut about an inch off of the end that was burning. Under the ash was a hole a little smaller than a pencil eraser doing all of the work. The tobacco all around this small hole wasn't burning, just this deep small cavity. It may be that I received a bad batch which can happen to any one at any time. I'm still going to try the more expensive 1926 and 1964 Padron at some point.”
