Quick Smoke: Padrón 2000 Maduro

19 Oct 2013

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Pondering my colleague’s recent article about what he calls “Classic Rock Cigars,” I couldn’t help but recall how much I enjoy the Padrón 2000 Maduro (5 x 50)—and how long it had been since I fired one up. No, this cigar isn’t the latest, the greatest, or the most hyped. But it does offer a fantastic, peppery profile of espresso, cocoa, raisin, and dark chocolate, all for less than $6. Like some of my favorite old rock songs, it’s classic and always reliable.

Verdict = Buy.

    Padron 2000 was my first ‘real’ cigar back in the day. And with times being what they are, money being tight I am glad that the Padron 2000 is still as good as it was when I first started as I have gone back to the shop and been snapping them up at $5.00 a stick.
