I think this is the perfect cigar for a beginner. It has a good flavor and a flawless construction, yet its bouquet is not rich enough to make it a first-class cigar.
The cigar is very hard, the wrapper's smooth and there are no veins visible. Almost flawless.
The construction is very neat. I have a feeling that people who made the Padron Maduro 3000 were extremely careful and they definitely made a good job. In comparison with the Padron Delicias Maduro, the smoke is not as hot, it doesn't dry your mouth.
It all starts with pleasant hazelnut flavors, then I felt a few notes of fresh fern. Moderately powerful, the Padron Maduro 3000 provides a very nice bouquet of flavors, although it's hard to name all of the components except hazelnut and fern. White and perfectly regular ash. The last third is not as good, but still OK.
A very good price/quality ratio, I would definitely keep a few in my humidor. I already know what to do with these - offer them to my friends who don't smoke, I'm sure Padron Maduro 3000 can be a good start.
Overall Rating :
A fine and affordable cigar. Much better than the previous Padron I reviewed a few days ago.
