padron 4000ratings and scores
That's a big old cigar hanging out there to your right, in fact it's almost two hours of monster Padron 4000 That's a big old cigar hanging out there to your right, in fact it's almost two hours of monster Padron 4000. The Padron 4000 is a recent addition to the Padron line, available in both natural and maduro. This coveted smoke was anticipated by the cigar smoking world both for the price, and the hope that it would rank in quality with the rest of the family. The 4000 natural has a good smooth wrapper, with a minimal, but evident sheen looking back at you. As you stare down and prepare for a long smoke, you'll notice a consistent wrapper, something that is not always easy to pull off on such a large cigar. A couple of our cigars showed some minor lumps in the construction, they weren't overly noticeable, and didn't take away from the general look of the cigar. Put a torch to the end of this big boy, and you'll soon be taking in a very dependable and respectable draw. The smoke is rich and white, and prompted the following description by a well heeled reviewer. "As for the scent, I would have to note a woody coffee-ness that was subtle, yet distinctly Nicaraguan." We're going to quickly move to the taste, as that was where most of the anticipation began, and feedback showed up. The Padron 4000 has garnered almost all positive reviews whenever you see them, and this is no different, with a couple of twists. We had five very interesting results when our reviewers described the taste. We literally had 3 reviewers saying the cigar started slow, and absolutely blossomed as you got past the half way point. The final two reviewers enjoyed the flavor of the first half of the cigar, and became less enamored with the Padron 4000 as they passed the mid-way point. We have two opposing views, although they were very unlike our recent elections, as these conflicting parties agreed wholeheartedly that the bypass should be overcome, and the Padron 4000 is a very worth cigar. So what does that mean? For one, It probably doesn't indicate anything more than the fact that people have differing tastes in a cigar. That is no earth shattering revelation. What concerned us, was the fact that all five reviewers noticed a difference from beginning to end. This often happens in larger cigars, but we would venture to guess that it doesn't happen to the point that 5 out of 5 people will notice it AND write about in their review. Perhaps we have identified a bit of inconsistency in the early Padron 4000's. We were tempted to give this a "B+", but due to the flavor inconsistencies had to award a "B". That being said, you still can't deny that you have a quality cigar at an affordable price. We for one really didn't expect anything else from the Padron family. Smoke away!
