Top 5 Anniversary Cigars
Milestones in your career should be celebrated more often. Whether you’ve completed an achievement for anywhere from 5 to 50 years, it should always be embraced by you and your loved ones. A growing trend within the cigar industry that we have noticed as of late is “Anniversary blends”. I bet you any money that you could randomly pick a cigar company, look through their catalog, and you’ll be able to point out a cigar under their brand that represents a specific accomplishment.
Whether it’s Anniversary cigars for how long a cigar manufacturer has been in the business or how long the company has been around for how long a cigar manufacturer has been in business. Most Anniversary blends and cigar lines are limited edition smokes that use very rare tobaccos within the specific cigars.
So without further ado, here are our top 5 Anniversary Cigar! From Padron to Tatuaje, we’ve provided some rare, anniversary cigars for you all to enjoy! Don’t forget to check out our limited-time sampler in the link below.
H. Upmann 175th Anniversary
The first anniversary of our Top 5 Anniversary cigars is one of our favorites here at JR! The H. Upmann 175th Anniversary kicks things off for us today!
To celebrate the companies 175 years in the industry, Altadis USA knew they needed to go all out for an anniversary cigar. So AUSA reached out to legendary blender AJ Fernandez to collaborate with this gorgeous-looking stick. Rolled at his factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, the 175th Anniversary by H. Upmann is a Nicaraguan puro that features a special, three-year-old Medio Tiempo leaf for the wrapper.
Some flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking the H. Upmann 175th Anniversary are coffee, white pepper, cashews, vanilla, and dried fruit on the backend that would pair so nicely with a scotch on the rocks.

Padron Family Reserve
Secondly, we have the Padron Family Reserve on our Top 5 Anniversary Cigars. In 2009, Padron released the Family Reserve line to pay homage to multiple milestones the company accomplished. Padron made a cigar The Padron Family Reserve 44 Years, 45 Years, 46 Years, and the 50 Years to celebrate the number of years the company has been around for. However, for the 85 Years, this cigar honors the 85th birthday of José Orlando Padron, who started Padron Cigars in 1964.
This Nicaraguan puro utilizes 10-year-old Nicaraguan tobaccos for the wrapper, binder, and filler in all five sizes of the cigar line. Some delicious flavor notes you’ll detect while smoking the Padron Family Reserve are bread, wood, nuts, and earth on the backend.

Tatuaje 15th Anniversary
Next up on our Top 5 Anniversary Cigars is a cigar from a company we absolutely love! In 2003, Pete Johnson introduced the world to Tatuaje cigars! Throughout the years we’ve enjoyed numerous smokes from Tatuaje that we cannot get enough of. Fast forward to 2018, Johnson released an anniversary cigar to celebrate fifteen years in the business. The Tatuaje 15th Anniversary is for the fans of the brand who’s supported Pete and Tatuaje for all these years!
This medium to full-bodied cigar is cloaked in Ecuadorian tobacco, all while having Nicaraguan tobaccos that make up the binder and filler.
