Padron 7000 Natural Cigar Review

This 6.25×60 stick features a dark brown oily satin wrapper with an even spongy pack, lumpy roll, single cap, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a rich milk chocolate aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with plentiful mild-medium smoke output showing flavors of a soft lightly bitter tobacco with a short finish. The first third quickly turns to the typical Padron smoothness although still quite mild. Flavors shift to just a milk chocolate and soft finish with plenty of smoke output. 35 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the burn is pretty bad with an inch difference side to side needing a big touch-up. Body is up to a medium and the finish get a smooth deep earth lasting to the next draw. Ending at 1:15 where it got very hot and squishy the last third showed no further flavor changes. Thank you very much to viewer Kevin Walsh for sending this in for review, I really appreciate it!

    I’m with you man, I don’t get the big craze with 60+ ring gauge cigars.

      I hear ya. I’m a little surprised such a classic and respected company like Padron buy into such trends. I guess they like $$$ too!

    A question about the touch-up, do you let a crooked burn go for a while for the sake of the review? I tend to touch-up as soon I notice a crooked burn, which generally corrects a burn issue before it becomes a problem.

    I too try to nip it in the bud. Perhaps I should give them a chance to correct themselves for flavors sake?

    general question…..will using a punch instead of a cutter keep the draw tighter on a larger ring gauge stick? or I guess on any stick for that matter. I don’t buy large ring gauge but have a few from some samplers. thanks for the hard work you put into your reviews and your photography is amazing!

    • It may somewhat, but punches, v-cutters and other such restrictive cuts can lead to other problems like plugs from tar buildup. It’s personal choice if you want to go that route, I only prefer the intended full cut. When a cigar fails to be cut normally, it’s a problem, I never subscribe to the ‘you need to use a punch’ rational to solve a problem.

    I love Padron cigars

    I love the numbered series from pardon. I prefer the Maduro. But I really have an issue with the single cap. You gotta be so careful not to take off to much. That 7000 is just to big for me though. I’m also not a fan of these larger ring sizes. As much as I like padron it’s the one cigar my wife hates the smell of. Any other cigar she doesn’t seem to mind. But she’ll always say something after I smoke a pardon.

    Those who are not crazy about larger ring gauges, you obviously have small mouths. This cigar is the best in the world and I disagree with this reviewer. I have never had an uneven burn on this cigar and its flavor is great. Smokes awesome. The best by far.
