Padron! I feel nothing else needs to be said. However, there are those who might not be familiar with the brand and that should change ASAP! Padron was the original Nicaraguan Cigar producers and their Anniversary and Family Reserve lines are nothing short of masterpieces. As far as the Original lines are concerned, they are one of the best bangs for the buck out there and not so far off the Anniversary or Reserve lines. The demand is so great; they instituted a cap on the number of cigars they produce each year to ensure the hands of time are not rushed and that careful attention is paid to each cigar coming off the rolling tables.
The Padron 1964 Anniversary Series line was introduced in 1994 to commemorate their company's 30th anniversary. This line consists of ten sizes that are all available in Sun-Grown Natural and Maduro wrappers. All tobacco used in this limited production series is aged for four years, creating a smooth and complex flavor. In honor of the age-old Cuban tradition of box-pressing cigars, the 1964 Anniversary line was introduced as a box-pressed series. The Padron 1964 Anniversary Series is consistently ranked by industry experts as one of the top brands in the world.
