Cigar Review: Padron 1964 Anniversary Series

Initial Thoughts:

Padron is one of the biggest names in the cigar world, and the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series is one of their most famous cigars. In the past, Padron cigars haven't been my favorite. I've always felt like they tasted like dirt (the correct terminology would be “earthy”), so I've stayed away.

But, given the chance to smoke the 1964 Anniversary Series, I jumped at the opportunity. This cigar is light and doesn't feel like there's enough tobacco in there. The draw is very easy, and that goes to confirm the suspicion that this particular stick may be underfilled.

That said, the 1964 Anniversary series doesn't have the same “earthy” taste to it like the regular, lower-priced, Padrons seem to have. After smoking almost an inch, the loose draw (which was like sucking on a straw), tightened up just a smidge and became on the loose side of perfect.

Final Thoughts:

After smoking the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series, I might've changed my opinion on Padron's cigars. The 1964 didn't taste like dirt – my honest opinion of the regular line – and it was well made. The flavors were rich yet creamy and there were notes of pepper. The cigar smoked cool and didn't get warm until there was about 40% left. The burn was near perfect and the draw was practically perfect as well.

However, for the money, there are better cigars out there. Because of the value for the dollar and not-quite-amazing flavor profiles, I give the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series a CigarScore of 3. I'd smoke it again, but there are other cigars I'd prefer to have in my humidor.
