The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series line was introduced in 1994 to commemorate Padrón’s 30th anniversary. The tobacco used in this series is aged for four years.
The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series is available in two wrapper leaves; Natural or Maduro. For this review, I chose the Natural wrapper.
Padrón’s 1964 Anniversary Series is one of my favorite cigars from the manufacturer. This Nicaraguan Puro has a medium brown wrapper, which is coarse to the touch with some noticeable seams and veins.
The body of the cigar is firm to the touch and has no soft spots. The wrapper had a faint cedar and tobacco aroma while the foot had a rich earthy scent.
Once lit, the cigar developed a dark, firm ash that fell after about an inch and a half. The cigar burned evenly and produced a good amount of smoke.
This cigar has a very consistent flavor profile. The flavors I am able to pick out are deep intense coffee, toasty tobacco and a hint of chocolate. There is also a big spice sensation in my sinuses upon exhale.
As is characteristic about most Padrón’s that I have smoked, the 1964 Anniversary Series is a full bodied, medium to full strength cigar.
As I mentioned earlier, I enjoy just about everything from Padrón Cigars. Their quality is top notch from the original Padrón Series all the way to the latest Family Reserve series. In fact, I still enjoy an occasional Londres from the original series from time to time.
The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Superior is a definite “must try” if you have never smoked one. I think you will enjoy them as much as I do.
