Review Notes: When my Padron 2000 Maduros first arrived, I couldn't wait to smoke one. The first was very good, but I thought I'd let the rest age a bit before passing judgment. Now, they've grown to be an excellent smoke. Upon first light up, I got a strong hit of flavor, like knocking back an espresso in one gulp. Not the full coffee flavor, per se, but a full blast of great, strong flavor. After about half an inch or so, it transitioned into light pepper/spice for a while, then came back to a light but distinct toasted coffee flavor with traces of sweetness, staying consistent all the way down to the nub--never a trace of bitterness or harshness. Burn and draw were both excellent, with a strong ash as well. The appearance is quite nice, although not quite as perfect as the Padron Anniversaries I have in the humidor. But then the 2000 costs only about a third as much. With a 50 ring, this is a touch bigger than I prefer. I have a fistful of Maduro Padron Delicias aging in the humi, and at a ring size of 46 they are my preferred size. I hope they turn out to be just as good. If they aren't, the 2000 will convert me to the ranks of Robusto smokers.
