This cigar never disappoints. A great smoke every time. Great flavor and smooth.

Padron 3000 Maduro Robusto
This Padron cigar seems to be very consistent. I haven't experienced much variation from cigar to cigar. I think the 3000 is a little pricey compared to other brands I enjoy, but it offers great construction with a little better than medium body with an enjoyable tobacco blend.

Good but not great
I thought it was a good cigar, fired and burnt well. I would buy another box, but not right away.

Bigger may not always be better.
So I've smoked two different sized Padrons today the first in the Delicias size and second (which I'm puffing on as I type) in the 3000 size, of the 2 I must say I prefer the Delicias due to the tremendous smoke out put and creamier texture. Both cigars are wonderful but I am noticing the 3000 to be a little more earthy and robust. Overall excellent cigars especially at such a reasonable price ,I think I can see a box of the Delicias in my future.

Would buy again as a medium-full panatela.
Great construction and consistency. I prefer a medium cigar and these are more medium-full. The smoke is a little hot but good flavor.

Simply the best!
Smoke after smoke, order after order Padron never fails.

Padron 5000
Disappointed...had to insert, in 5 of the 5000, a small metal screw driver in order to have a decent draw. Will not order Padron from CI. Over the last several months the quality of all cigars appears to be the last concern.Will be now purchasing 2nds.

Everything you would expect from Padron
This stick is everything you expect and nothing you wouldn't. I wouldn't describe it as "predictable" but definitely dependable. Classic robust tobacco flavors brimming with notes of leather spice, and cedar; with that one of a kind Padron Maduro wrapper. Not really priced for an "everyday" smoke but they're inexpensive enough to keep them stocked in the humidor to deploy whenever the time is right; and with this smoke, anytime is the right time. Awesome, nuff' said!

Regular Customer
CI have the lowest price compares to any other company. The one thing I do not like about CI is there customer service. They are very short with you and it seem like they almost care. I have been order from CI almost every month for this last couple years. I chose CI BECAUSE they offers better price.

Padron 4000 Maduro is an exquisite cigar, consistent flavor smooth even to the end, excellent construction, and everyday cigar for all occasions. This is a staple cigar in my humidor.

Padron Natural
Padron is only my third favorite. That's because Padron 1964 & 1926 are my second and first. Best brand on the market, hands down!
4 out of 5
My current go to.
I'm a big fan of Padron's cigars. I'm especially fond of the 1926 series. That said the 1926's are prohibitively expensive for my budget. The Padron 3000 is a really nice, solid cigar at a price that in not too abusive. I would say that most of Padron's blends are on the assertive to highly assertive side as far as strength and flavor are concerned. With that in mind I would encourage folks to try these (and any) cigars before investing in a box. Like anything else, there is no one size fits all.

Padron 3000 Maduro
Love my Padron 3000 Maduro. As always consistant in quality & flavor. Padron always delivers and has never let me down in all the years that I have smoked cigars. Always good value for the money and still 26 cigars in the box!

Smooth Excellent Cigar
The Padron 3000 is my favorite cigar! Smooth, flavorful, even burn. Great price for such a good cigar. This is the cigar I usually choose from my favorites when I want to relax with a glass of bourbon and some smooth jazz.

Dealing with cigar sellers on Internet...
I've ordered cigars from many different sellers over the years and CI has always exceeded in dependability and took care of any problems. I like getting prices that are very reasonable to start with rather then playing games. In my book they're triple A all the way ! A+A+A+

...very tasty!
These cigars are made entirely with Nicaraguan sun-grown Habano leaves, ...very tasty! The cigar has notes of earth, cocoa, coffee, pepper, and a bit of sweetness on the finish that nicely rounds out the experience. The Padron 3000 burns straight, draws perfectly, beautiful smoke, and stays incredibly smooth and flavorful from the moment you toast the foot to the moment you set down the nub. I highly recommend adding a box to your collection. These are great...and impressive, for any occasion at a very reasonable price. I high dollar tasting cigar, for blue collar budget.

Customer Testimonials
This should be a staple in everyone's humidor... enough said.
Always a great smoke, never lets you down.
Very good smoke, lots of nice big white smoke. Burns even. Only small complaint is sent me four 5 packs and not a box.
I'm normally a Maduro guy, but the 3000 Nat is just hard to beat. It's what an everyday cigar experience should be! Fantastic burn! Excellent taste! This stick is making me a box press convert!
My favorite size is the Londres (5.5x42). It is a splendidly made corona--as are all Padron shapes & sizes--and in keeping with the tradition of the Padron family: "We will sell no cigar before its time"--this one'll not disappoint. You simply cannot go wrong with a medium-full Nicaraguan puro from Padron.
Padron 7000 natural has been my daily smoke for several years. The cigars come ready to smoke, having gone through an extensive aging process. The draw is consistently perfect and the flavor is earthy and leathery. Unfortunately, after three recent substandard boxes, I consulted with the CI customer service reps, who confirmed that the ammonia and acidic flavor was a result of the cigars having not been aged at all. I'm in the process of aging a box right now, but it will take some time. I recommend that you hold-off on Padron for a while.... As for CI customer service, you guys are the best.
I'm smoking a Padron 3000 right now for the first time. Perfect size; the taste is unreal. Very smooth. I could definitely smoke one of these all day long. If you haven't tried one of these yet, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, you deserve it.
I have three large humidors which I keep full with various high-quality cigars. I can literally just randomly pick any cigar in any one of them and enjoy an awesome cigar. So if I was asked "What is your favorite cigar?" I might not necessarily think Padron right off the bat. That being said, I smoke more Padrons than any other cigar. I recently noticed that I only have a few left, so I've got another box on the way. Even though I enjoy many other cigars, I never want to run out of these. Just a great cigar in every way.
3000 Maduro Robusto. Need a box ASAP. Great smoke! Once I get more room in my humidor. LOLOLOLOLOL
Straight off the truck it was a perfect long burn. Was a medium to loose draw. Taste was very good. I would say it is a strong/full flavored cigar.
Padron's are always the best and this is no exception! Can be very stong at the end.
The most consistent cigar I have ever smoked. Chocolate, cream, full-bodied, an awesome cigar!!! :)
Padron is a very good cigar. And NO, it is not the best cigar out there. Their '64s and '26s and Family's are great, but the thousand series are just well made smokes for the price. It is a very appealing, tasty, and consistent smoke for the price. As/If you get more into cigars, the thousand line Padrons are something you will probably leave behind. You may come back to them and enjoy them for what they are - well made consistent smoke at a nice price - but there are just going to be a lot more out there that are just going to do something for you and really excite the tastes when you smoke them. Soon you'll find Padron to be good, but not really doing too much for you. Take that as a challenge to go find something else on CI that's fabulous and don't argue with me until you have a vast repertoire under your belt. But Padron is good. But there are many things better... even around these price points. Also, Padron's really aren't Med-Full these days like many will advertise. And I'm not so sure the company is entirely honest stating all Nicaraguan tobacco. Smoke some cigars with Mexican tobacco (particularly wrapper) then smoke these again and tell me what you think.
I feel special to have been able to get these.
I am a newbie to cigars and have purchased a couple samplers and have settled on buying 5 packs of various brands as a strategy to evaluate certain brands or types of cigars. I recently bought the Padron 2000 Maduro Robusto and I must say that I am very satisfied with that cigar. From the first light to the last inch of this fine smoke I find it to be an easy draw and a very flavorful stick. I would recommend this cigar to my friends and I will definitely purchase more and keep an ample supply in my humidor.
I finally had my first Padron. Holy crap! Many premium cigar I have smoked have been mediocre at best and others flat out disappointing. This one will absolutely not disappoint you. You hear people talk of chocolate smell on the foot. I had never really noticed it. This stick smelled like it was wrapped in dark chocolate! Most delicious smelling cigar ever. Initially the flavor was decent but not overly impressive. Just entering the 2nd third, I was hit by a flavor freight train! Blew my F'ing mind! If have not, you HAVE to try this one.
I smoke the Londres (5.5 x 42) and the Churchill (6.875 x 46). The small ring size allows the wrapper flavor to shine. Construction is about 99% flawless. Both the Maduro and Natural are excellent smokes. To my taste the Natural has a "deeper" flavor and more pleasant finish. These cigars have stayed consistent in construction, burn quality and flavor over the 10+ years I've been smoking them. If I had to limit myself to only one brand of cigar, Padron would be it.
Went thru a box of 7000 Maduro's less than a year ago, liked the experience, and placed reorder along with some less expensive Ramon Bueso, Genesis... The Genesis have arrived, taking up residence in my humidor. That tease Padron remains backordered (at almost triple the price of RB) weeks after ordering. They must be doing something right to have that sort of following. I'm still awaiting a return call from Cameron Diaz too. Patience, patience, patience.
Probably the most consistent brand I've smoked. I usually go for the 3000 Maduro. It's always the exact same experience, which is a good thing. I might describe the 3000 Maduro as earthy and quite strong. Always perfect burn and always a perfect draw. The 5000 Maduro has more of a wooden taste to it, sweet wood. I've sampled a number of brands and often when I buy the same thing again my experience differs. But with Padron the way they tasted the very first time is the way they taste now, for that reason it's my goto when I want a no non-sense good smoke.
Here's a smoke that delivers! Impeccable draw, steady, even burn and in-your-face flavor. Sip your favorite rye after a couple of good puff...let that sit on your palate for a few puff again...retrohale...who mellows who? Who brings out the best in who? Just plain, "WOW!" All I know for certain is that, with Padron, I scored today.
I first met Padron cigars five years ago and it soon became the only cigar that I would smoke.
This was an absolute jewel about 12 years ago. You could go to the local cigar stores and buy a box and it would be great.
Nicaragua is putting out some of the best cigars on the market today, and Padron is the undisputed king of Nicaraguan cigars. Nothing more needs to be said.
Pardon 7000 is the best cigar of all cigars... I don't care if anyone disagrees with me...Pardon 7000 has an unparalleled flavor...its burn is always even and it lasts a long time if I leave it sitting while grabbing or doing other cigar matches its intensity and overall satisfaction...simply the cigar to end all cigars...nuff said!
The greatest day in and day out smoke!
I'm not the writer that some of you guys are, but I do like a good cigar. So here goes . I was out on a cigar outing with my son, who by the way got me started smoking cigars . We had hit our second cigar shop, and my son was pushing me to try a Opus X. Well I splurged and bought one and also a Padron 26 and 64 and a Padron natural churchill. I smoked the 26 there and fell in love, best damm cigar I've had to date, the 64 and churchill went into my humidor along with the Opus X. To make a long story short the 64 was really good [ not the 26 but good ] , and the natural churchill was right in line with the 26,. I'am now a Padron snob....
Rich in flavor, burns evenly and last a long time. I like this cigar.
Pardon is the best cigar brand out there. I definitely love the Padron 2000 Natural (Robusto). From the time I smoked my first one, I just knew one this was my cigar and I never looked back.
....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.
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.
never had such a smooth well balanced cigar at this price. 5x50 perfect draw,construction,even burn,white me, just a great smoke####
These sticks are fantastic. Got them sitting in my humi, biding my time.
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.
Arrived In Good Shape As Usual.:)
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
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.
