Padron 7000 Natural

When you think of Nicaraguan cigars, one of the first brands that may pop up in your mind is Padron.  It’s one of the most respected names in the industry, and with good reason as it has many quality cigars under its belt.  I can say with confidence that I’ve never had a bad smoking experience will puffing on a Padron, so purchasing one of its 7000 Natural selections seemed like anything but a risky move.  Will this stogie continue to push my high opinion of the brand?  It’s time to light it up and find out.

The Padron 7000 Natural comes in a Toro format that measures a hefty 6 ½ x 60.  As I said in the intro, Padron is known for making high quality Nicaraguan cigars, so it comes as no surprise that the 7000 is a Nicaraguan puro.  While I’m smoking the Natural version for this review, you can also find the 7000 in a Maduro format.  In terms of strength, the 7000 Natural is listed as being medium-bodied.

Padron cigars aren’t the flashiest around in terms of presentation, and the 7000 Natural is no different.  It has a simple decorative band near the head that showcases the Padron name and logo in a typical brown and white color scheme.  The band blends in nicely with the chocolate brown wrapper.  I see a few small veins here and there, but no major imperfections.  The cigar feels firm to the touch for the most part, with just a little give.  Before lighting the 7000 up, I detect a chocolaty aroma.  The cold taste, on the other hand, is all coffee.

After a quick light the Padron 7000 Natural burns without any major issues to contend with.  The draw is a tad loose, but remains satisfactory.  A good amount of smoke is produced, and its aroma is rather smooth.  Only one mild touch-up is needed.  No re-lights are necessary, however.  Smoking time is around one hour and 20 minutes total.
