In my opinion, this cigar is not refined enough, it lacks personality. You won't recognise Padron Delicias Maduro if you were to smoke it blindfolded.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★☆☆
Not quite impressed by the appearance, however, it's rather well filled and soft to the touch. The wrapper is satisfying.

Construction : Rating: ★★★½☆
The pre-draw was fine, with touches of sugarcane. Easy draw and regular burn. The smoke was very hot.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★☆☆
The stick is contradictory - the flavor is certainly powerful (even overwhelming), but it's not generous enough. The bitterness is present throughout the smoking session, with strong arboreal and vegetal flavors. These flavors become more tender in the second third, but I felt that my mouth was slightly drawn in the last third. Not a very pleasant sensation, I must admit..

Value : Rating: ★★★★☆
Padron cigars are not expensive, this one can be bought for $3-4/piece. I think it's exactly what the cigar's worth.

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★½☆
I felt that Padron Delicias Maduro were a bit rough. However, I am pretty sure that a lot of people will like this cigar, since it's tonicizing and powerful.

  1. Was harsh in the beginning, but I came to appreciate the second third, and the last third was actually rather sweet.

  2. I have yet had any problems you had with this cigar. I was really confused. Every Padron (X000) I have smoked and (“many I have”) have all been very good. Maybe you got a bad one–I say try another.Thanks for the review!

  3. Don’t think I am ready yet for this one.

  4. John Werner says:

    Sounds like the one you had burned a bit hot. Try it again and compare. When I want a shorter smoke I like these as they retain a lot of the Padron taste profile. That said, they can sometimes burn hot and you will notice a slightly bitter edginess when that happens. All in all usually a dependable good little stick.

  5. I smoke the 3 and 4000 series. Man this is a great stick, draw wide open with tons of smoke. Flavorful stick although tough to describe. Really great experience!
