Padron Maduro 5000 (Gordo) (5.5"x56) Box of 26
Consistent as clockwork.
Padron cigars are a series of robust Nicaraguan handmades boasting a deep and complex flavor. This brand continually gets high marks for consistency, and as such enjoys a loyal and enduring fan base. Much of the Padron hype comes from their Anniversary cigars, like Padron 1964 and Padron 1926. But those in the know reach for the mainline Padron just as frequently — and once you try one, I guarantee this becomes a staple in your humidor.
Padron cigars are Nicaraguan puros, as all of the leaves utilized to create the cigar are cultivated from the fertile soils of Esteli, Nicaragua. This mesmerizing mixture of hearty tobaccos produces a rich, robust cigar and offers a complex array of flavor capped off with a sweet finish. The blend is available in two equally impressive varieties : natural and maduro. Best of all, each size is reasonably priced. When all the cards are put on the table, Padron cigars are hard to top, period.
Within its sea of 90+ ratings, Padron earned as high as a 93.
