Definitely not a '64 Anniversario, but meets every expectation I would have out of it with great satisfaction.
That's pretty much exactly how I feel about Padron 3000. It's a great cigar at the price, b/c it's cheap enough to be an "every day" smoke. If you're looking for a REALLY fantastic cigar, then step up to the '64 Anny like Wayfarer said.
Then again, different strokes. Maybe you just got a couple bad padron's that'll taste better after a couple days in the humi, maybe padron 3000 just isn't your smoke.
