Padron 2000 Robusto: Quick Review

Padron 2000 Robusto
I grabbed this Padron 2000 Robusto last night from Cigar Train for $7.99 while picking up my monthly Freight Train cigars. Believe it or not this is actually the first Padron I've smoked.

The maduro colored wrapper is rolled on with seamless care and there are only a couple very fine veins. There's also a bit of tooth to the wrapper.

Once the cigar was burning there's a big blast of chocolate right up front. The chocolate is followed closely by some oak, brown sugar and earth. In my book it's a pretty tasty mix. These initial flavors were followed by cream, charcoal, barnyard, molasses and peat with a great burnt mocha finish.

Overall this was a pretty good cigar. It had great construction and out of the park flavors, but I was disappointed with a 35 minute burn time.
