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 Padr√≥n 1926 Anniversary line to commemorate the company‚Äôs 40th birthday. If all those commemorations and dates have your brain in a tangle, just know this:
The 1926 Anniversary line won Cigar Aficionado‚Äôs Cigar of the Year twice.
Thus, this is one of the very best heritage blends you could possibly bring in to your humidor.
Let‚Äôs 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‚Äôll find well-aged tobacco, with some leaves maturing for as much as ten years. The flavors are just beyond comparison. It‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs list in 2017. This line isn‚Äôt coasting on old success. Much like the Padr√≥n 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‚Äôs a little taste of cigar history, and this is by far one of the sweetest chapters.
The construction of the Padron 1926 40th Anniversary Maduro is outstanding, as one would expect from the Padron family. The flavor is bold and vibrant. There’s plenty of body as well. No complaints; just pleasure.
Have smoked many, many different, but this is my cost is no concern cigar. It is just smooooth and rich, and kinda hard to describe, but has flavor like no other(in a good way). A floral hint too? Simply the best (better than Cuban, ashton, fuente etc).
If you’re worried about dropping $30 on a single, pick up a 5er of your favorites instead and don’t look back. If you won’t miss the $$, or if this one is on your bucket list, give it a try. You won’t be disappointed despite the ultra-high expectations. It delivers with a Nicaraguan Puro presentation that clearly defines quality in agronomy, cultivation and construction. Price forgotten, this is a tremendously satisfying smoke with very full flavor and body.
Let’s get this out of the way: this is a really expensive cigar and probably cannot live up to its price tag. There. Now, this is also a very tasty cigar that offers a unique smoking experience as often as you can afford it. When you do light one up you’ll discover a rich blend of cocoa and coffee with hints around the edges of interesting spices that will have you contemplating every puff. What are a couple hours of enjoyable distraction worth to you?
I bought two and smoked both within the last month...first one, a great smoke, construction and draw were perfect...second was even better much more complex than I thought the first was...same great construction....the 9 rating is because of the cost....Price should always be reflected in a cigars rating
