Default Padron 3000 maduro

It has been at least 5 or 6 years since I smoked a Padron thousand series. I have fond memories of Padron (their basic lines were among the first "good" cigars I tried back when I was a noob) so I couldn't resist the ridiculous prices that 5 packs were going for on the Famous auction site. $21! SCORE!

Hmmm...I seem to remember these cigars being built a little better. These are pretty light in the hand and have a bit of a loose draw. They also look like maybe they didn't sit in the molds long enough (a little lumpy toward the foot).

Flavor is still there. All those flavors you look for in a good maduro. Cocoa, coffee, coconut. Decent burn with only a few minor corrections. As I type with the cigar between my teeth, the aroma coming from the foot is heavenly.

Honestly, at these prices, I will probably snap up a few more 5 packs.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
