The Padron 5000 was just added to the inventory of my tobacco shop. Of course, I have to try all the new items first. When the owner opened the box it was love at first sight. I just knew that this was going to be a good cigar. I wasn't disappointed at all.

Appearance : ★★★★½
One of the deepest darkest shades of brown that I have ever had the honor of seeing in a cigar. There were veins, but they only added to the essence of this big old stogie.

Construction : ★★★★☆
Smooth draw with an excellent burn. No loose spots, yet a feel of firmness.

Flavor : ★★★★★
The first third was, what is the best word to describe it, "exciting!" A real woody earthy flavor with a spicy intenseness. It kind of worried me as when most cigars start like this, they are too strong by the second third to go any further. This was not the case. The second third had the same intensity, yet with a bit more pepper. The final third held that until the end.

Value : ★★★★★
This may be my new favorite cigar, particularly due to the price. It's affordable yet classy.

Overall Rating : ★★★★½
As I stated before, this one is a keeper. I'm going to put it in my humidor and see what happens after a couple of weeks, but as for the straight out of the box aspect, I am in love with it.

  1. That’s a fat one for a robusto, isn’t it? Anyway, pretty good effort; I remember some great construction and nice cedar flavors.

  2. This has been a long time favorite of mine. Fairly priced, complex, pleasant flavors and billows upon billows of smoke!!!! One of the easiest smokers I know. I really like the size as well and even it’s non-maduro brother is in my top 40. A great, full smoke when you only have appx. 45 min. to burn. Even burn with only an occassional canoe….good stick to bullet punch!

  3. This is a gorgeous cigar. The maduro wrapper is a dark leathery brown color. It has a beautiful oily sheen and it even looks like it’s leather. It is very toothy with small veins throughout, but no rib veins. It looks very well made with a perfect cap. This has got to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing cigars I have ever seen and it only gets better. The cap cut perfectly and the pre light drawn was smooth and easy. The cigar lit as if it knew that it was meant to do so. I have never had a cigar light so easily and perfectly before. The flavor was consistent from start to finish. I found it to be earthy and woody with hints of leather and nuts. The ash held firm but was a little papery on the edges. I smoked this one until my lips started to burn.

    It’s a great time to be a cigar smoker. There are just a lot of really good smokes to be had and this is definitely one of them.
