Padron Special Release 40th Anniversary Maduro Description
This Padron Special Release 40th Anniversary Maduro cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find a Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper. Inside, the binder is Nicaraguan, and the filler is Nicaraguan. The Padron Special Release 40th Anniversary Maduro is a Full-Bodied Torpedo shaped cigar with a length of 6.50 and a ring gauge of 54.
This is a special release of the Padrón 1926 Anniversary line to commemorate the company’s 40th birthday. If all those commemorations and dates have your brain in a tangle, just know this:
The 1926 Anniversary line won Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar of the Year twice.
Thus, this is one of the very best heritage blends you could possibly bring in to your humidor.
Let’s talk about the cigar itself. Both the Maduro and the Natural version are flawlessly constructed, with silky-smooth wrappers that are totally irresistible. Inside, you’ll find well-aged tobacco, with some leaves maturing for as much as ten years. The flavors are just beyond comparison. It’s an intense, complex profile that combines dark chocolate, earthy spice, and hints of dark fruit. The cigar draws smooth, and provides mouthfuls of full bodied smoke. Then there’s a highly memorable finish that lingers and lasts, taking you from one pull to the next with lip-smacking intrigue.
Not to go overboard, but the 1926 Anniversary has been rated as high as 97, and also still arrives near the top of the charts, grabbing a #2 spot on Cigar Aficionado’s list in 2017. This line isn’t coasting on old success. Much like the Padrón family itself, the 1926 shows a continuing commitment to perfection that spans decades.
Production is quite limited, so if you see these Padron Special Release 40th Anniversary Maduro cigars are available, trample anyone in your way to ensure that you get a pack or box. It’s a little taste of cigar history, and this is by far one of the sweetest chapters.
