Review Notes: ...even because I have run out of 5000, and I am not buying a new box. Well, like the old car you're trading in that works magnificently on its last week with you, this last 5000 was the cream of the crop. Great flavors, a lot of smoke and even acceptable construction, although nothing to write home about. Just a little free advice to Jose Padron: get the quality control right on the 5000, and you have a winner!

"Inconsistency is THE issue"

Review Notes: Well, again on the P 5000 saga...this one has been aging four months in the humidor, same box as the ones rated before (see my comments). This time, flavour was very good, sweet but not bland, creamy. Construction though was appalling: a veiny leaf was a constant nuisance through the smoke, ashes were a nightmare, the combustion ring was very uneven and the 5000 couldn't stay lit after first half. All in all valuable smoke, but hindered by flaws not compatible with Padron's image. Maybe the roller in Nicarague was thinking to something else THAT day....

"A good one"

Review Notes: Well, my first one was not so good, bitter and harsh. The other ones from the same box have been definitely better, even if always on the bitter side, but more pleasingly so. All in all, quality for the 5000 seems inconsistent, much more so than for other Padron product. I re-rate the 5000, but inconsistency is an issue.

Review Notes: I expected a lot, excellent first half, too bitter second half...but a friend has smoked another one from the same box, and found it great...maybe mine was a not a very good one
