Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro Torpedo

 

its the cigar that attracted me to the non cuban cigars. Years back I was at La Casa Del Habano and there were two guys smoking a cigar that is not like the ones I know from Cuba!! They recognized that I’m looking so one of them offered me a cigar. I smoked it and kept smoking until now and here what I found:

Size: 6″ x 52

Origin: %100 Nicaraguan tobacco

Initial thoughts:
The most beautiful boxpressed cigar ever. Solid like rock and well packed with the best tobacco from nicaragua. Wrapper is very dark, its toothy but oily. The draw is excellent and brings hint of sweet tobacco and cocoa. The burn is razor sharp and the ash hangs very well for 2 inches or so.

1st:
Peppery with notes of coffee and cocoa, medium body smoke. An inch down lots of sweet tobacco flavors cocoa coffee and leather with hints of pepper and the body is almost full. Complex smoke shows how good this cigar is. Mouth watering and delicious smoke.

2nd:
It is already full body and flavors. Hints of old wood, sweet maple and cinnamon mixed well with the big flavors profile by the beginning of this third. By the half way point the smoke still creamy, rich and smooth with all the flavors mentioned above.

3rd:
The flavors gets richer than before with lots of leather, pepper, dark roasted coffee beans, cocoa, wood and sweet tobacco. Some caramel like shows in here to make it very happy ending.

Final thoughts:

This is a cigar that I can’t imagine my humidor without. One of the best cigar made in the world ever. It is the right choice for every time and occasion. This cigar in particular ages very well and very fast so 6 months is enough. And as they says “When Padron On The Label, Quality Is Matter Of Family Honor”. And guys if you have any doubt that Nicaragua produce some of the best tobacco try this “puro”
