Padron 2000 Maduro Review

Padron 2000 Maduro

Size: Robusto 5 x 50
Construction: Very bold looking Nicaraguan Puro; with a small/medium rough tooth. 
Burn: The Padron 2000 Maduro burned at a nice even circular pattern, with a rough white ash. A testiment to Padron's reputation for quality control.

 First 1/3rd
Rich tobacco spice and leather come through, with an effortless draw and volumes of smoke.

 Second 1/3rd
Less spice and a deeper sweet earthiness comes through on the 2nd 1/3rd.

Final 1/3rd 
Consistent sweet earthiness and leather with a continuation of the rich spice to create a classic Padron flavor profile.

Finish: Finishes dry with diminishing earthiness and an ever present spice.

Overall: For a Robusto that will have a consistent construction, as well as consistent flavor all throughout the stick, the Padron 2000 Maduro is a nice way to get there. This is a regular smoke for me while driving, or walking the dog. Although the changes in flavor are more subtle than other Nicaraguan Puros the Padron carries you through thick and thin with rich taste for short money.
