My oh my, what a fine smoke – and not just once! – over and over again. Reliable like the sun in Nicaragua. This cigar is consistently perfect and we’re all just a little bit unworthy to keep it in our humidors. But the best cigars weren’t made for museums; they were made to be smoked and enjoyed. So enjoy them we shall.
This box-pressed torpedo is a Nicaraguan puro made with tobacco that has been aged for 5, sometimes ten years. The flavors are fascinating and complex, but always balanced, in both the Natural and the Maduro wrapper. There’s the must-have chocolate, the welcome coffee, and the lip-smacking toasted nuts on the finish. Truly, the flavors never disappoint.
The Padrón Family Reserve (before it earned the adoration of aficionados everywhere) started as a cigar created purely for the enjoyment of friends and family. But like the Drew Estate Liga Privada showed us, it’s too hard to keep a great cigar a secret. Eventually, the pressure will build to release it for sale. And so the House of Padrón did just that, in limited production batches that break our hearts every time they run low, but that we know are necessary to preserve the heavenly quality of these luscious smokes.
In case you’re wondering, the numbers in each name relate to years in business. That is, the Padrón Family Reserve No.44 commemorates 44 years in business. The No. 45 is for 45 years in business. There’s also a 46, a 50, and an 85, but the 85 is for the 85th birthday of Jose Padrón, the now-passed legendary founder of the modern company.
If you’ve got a special family occasion coming up, we can think of no better way to celebrate than with the curling smoke of a Padrón Family Reserve. If you can ever get your hands on a Padron Family Reserve No.50 Natural Enjoy it!!! – it’s one of the finest cigars in the world.
