Don't laugh, but I just "discovered" Padron.

I'm sitting here smoking a Padron churchill. Not a high end anniversary stick, just a plain old Padron. I'm sure I've smoked a few at some point, but probably not for a few years, and I'm sure my palate has changed dramatically over that time.

With every draw, I keep thinking "*this* is the flavor profile I love." I've slowly moved away from most maduros, and while appreciate milder stuff, it always leaves me a little wanting. The profile on this cigar (how would you describe it?) is just perfect for me.

I think I just found my everyday cigar.

    Good stick; if you like the natural's, be sure to try it in a maduro; Padron 4000 maduro is one of my favorites

    Right on. I love the the regular Padron 3000 habano, they are just nice every time. Probably what I love most about Padron is the wide variety of vitolas and how different the flavor profiles can be across the spectrum of vitolas.

    Padrons are synonymous with AFs, for me. Consistency is a rare quality in the cigar industry. They never disappoint.

    +1. Only discovered the Padron line about three months ago myself. At this point I have had several of their sticks, and every single one of them has been awesome. Not even so much as a single "decent" or "solid" stick - every stick has been an experience. Make sure to give them all a shot at some point. Some are pricey, but I dont believe you will ever regret what you pay for any given Padron.

  • I started smoking about a decade ago, and didn't discover Padron until my girlfriend bought me a box of natural 3000 about 2-3 years ago. I was blown away by how good it was. Like you, I was thinking this is the flavor profile I love. The 80th is by far the best cigar I've ever had, and the regular line is amazing as well. 3000, Churchill, Londres - doesn't matter. They're all fantastic. It's very tough to find them on sale, but the regular line is priced well. Under $4 a pop is a-ok in my book.

    I love Padron cigars. I discovered them a few years ago when me and a co-worker went to denver and I shared one of my cigars with him, when we got back I had a Padron 4000 on my desk waiting for me. I put it in my humidor and it say there for almost 2 years till one day I took it to my cigar bar and smoked it. I have to say I was blown away. From that point forward I was a Padron fan. So much so, I started trying all there sticks...from the regular line all the way up to the Family Reserves/Padron 1926 80th. Never had a stick that disappointed. In fact, I bought a box of the 45 Family Reserves and smoke one 2x a year on my boy's birthdays.
