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.

Appearance : ★★★★☆
The cigar is very hard, the wrapper's smooth and there are no veins visible. Almost flawless.

Construction : ★★★★☆
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.

Flavor : ★★★★☆
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.

Value : ★★★★☆
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.

  1. I completely agree with you, that’s a real good Maduro, decent quality and affordable.

  2. You hit this one out of the ballpark! Great review and spot on summary about this being the best smoke for a beginner. Its affordable, available and packed with flavor.

    As the economy shudders, guys start looking for economic alternatives, and the Padron X000 maduros are great in the bang/buck department. The 3000 maddie has a reserved parking stall in my humi.

    I’m smoking one Padron 3000 maduro, robusto right now. Let me tell you this i a good cigar. Nothing out of this world. First, the appearance is not the best I’ve has seen, the construction is ok, but never compared with a Padron Anniversary. The draw is too loose… But still a cool one.
    Flavor is very good until half of it.. I’ll let you know about the finish later. Overall this is a good smoke for the price.

  5. All of the Padrons are like each other when it comes to the X000. The larger the ring the more powerful the smoke–Thanks for the review!

  6. While I am no great expert on cigars, I find the Maduro 3000 a great smoke, which goes particularly well with either a sherry or a Woodfords! For enjotment I rate it up there with Partagas, and Saint Luis Rey. In the UK it is especially good value and I would like to thank Fox of St James for introducing it to me.

  7. I found this cigar to be remarkably similar in flavor profile to a Montecristo #5 (Cuban). The draw was looser than I normally prefer but the flavors were rich and complex while equally balanced.
