Padron 1964 Anniversary Series
The Padron 1964 Anniversary Series cigar line debuted in 1994 to celebrate 30 years of Padron making some of the world’s most desirable premium handmade cigars. It was a huge hit from the beginning, and 25 years later, with a slew of 90-plus ratings, it remains one of the most popular and highly rated cigar lines on the market.
Padron Diplomatico is the largest of the Anniversary Series cigars, as it’s featured in two 7 x 50 vitolas, one with a light brown Nicaraguan wrapper, and the other, a dark, oily, Maduro Nicaraguan leaf. Completing this puro blend is Nicaraguan binder and fillers expertly grown on the prestigious Padron family farm in Estelí. Before rolling, these magnificent estate-grown leaves are aged in small batches for an additional 4-years to provide the cigar aficionado with the utmost in nuance and aroma.
When smoking the lighter wrapped Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Diplomatico cigar, this square pressed beauty reveals a silky, and profoundly fragrant smoke oozing with lush notes of leather, toast, cedar, soft spices, cream, and a rich tobacco sweetness that lingers in the background. Covered by its pristine, dark, oily, wrapper, the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Diplomatico Maduro cigar coats the palate with creamy-textured notes of spice, chocolate, wood, toasted almonds, and raisins.
Both styles of Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Diplomatico cigars are billed as full-bodied, but with flavors that are so incredibly smooth, we took the liberty of calling them medium-bodied, and we think you will agree. This is good news for newcomers that may have been discouraged from ordering a box due to its said full-bodied strength.
Pick up a box of Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Diplomatico cigars in either the natural or Maduro wrapper, and let these ultra-premium beauties stir up a celebration of your own!
