Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro Review and Giveaway Announcement

The Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro is the kind of cigar you see posted on "Top 10" lists. It's the kind of cigar you see on a lot of "All-Time Favorite Cigar" lists. It's the kind of cigar you smoke when you're celebrating something. It epitomizes the luxury that cigar smoking is synonymous with. So when the folks over at asked me to review it for them, I didn't put up much of a fight.

Prelight: You know how a Mercedes looks better than a Honda? The Padron 1964 Maduro is the same way. The ornate gold and maroon band catches the eye and complements the cigar's perfect construction. The Nicaraguan maduro wrapper is a deep, chocolate brown and smells of milk chocolate. The torpedo tip comes to a fine point and the wrapper application is perfect. Everything about the appearance of this cigar says, "You're gonna love me."

Beginning: I clipped the cap and fired this masterpiece up with my Xikar EX lighter. I immediately was hit with a nice, mild, chocolate note combined with a nutty finish. The characteristic sweetness from the maduro wrapper was bold and rested on the tongue. The retrohale offered up a white pepper spice (more heat than flavor) and rounded things out nicely. The flavors seemed to grow with each puff which plateaued after the first inch or so.

At the one inch mark, I wrote this in my notes, "Everything about this cigar is amazing: perfect burn, perfect draw and perfect balance of sweet and spice in the profile."

In my book you aren't even in the building. You are the grounds crew.
