Padron 4000 Maduro Cigar Review
I goofed in the vid calling it the 7000. This 6.5×54 stick features a dark chocolate, slightly oily and toothy firm wrapper with a hard crinkly pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, single cap and very potent hay and chocolate aroma. First light reveals a great draw with thick medium-full bodied smoke output showing flavors of an earthy spicy chocolate with a long finish. The first third burns well but quickly, hanging on to the same blend but getting oilier and smoother. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point performance is the same, body is mellowing to a medium and the ash held on for a couple inches and fell off cleanly. Ending at 50 minutes the last third grew to a deeper sweet eartg leaving a very heavy finish with a bit of spice. Thank you very much to viewer Marcos Heyliger for generously sending this in for review!
