Padron 1964 Superior Maduro

Padron 1964 Superior Maduro

The Padron 1964 Anniversary series was release in 1994 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Padron cigars. All the tobacco is aged for 4 years and all cigars have a traditional Cuban box press. They also did a first by adding serial numbers to their cigars by a second band to stop counterfeiting. All cigars are made with Nicaraguan tobaccos and have either a sun grown or maduro wrapper. Today, I’m smoking the Superior Maduro version.

The cigar comes in 10 vitolas:

Let’s see how it smokes!

Appearance

This cigar has a pretty rough appearance. The wrapper is as wrinkly as a 98 year old man. The cap is also hideous. Well, it’s not that bad, but it’s pretty damn ugly as you can probably see in the photo. Even with all that, the seams aren’t that visible. No large veins on the wrapper either.

Pre Light Draw

The cigar has great flavors on the draw. It has a nice earthy with hints of cocoa. On the wrapper and the foot, it’s has a strong cedar note.

First Third

The first third starts out with a bang. The cocoa note I got on the prelight draw is on the first third and is the main note I get. I also get a nice nutty note along with cedar. The cigar produces a lot of smoke and the room aroma is super nice. Cocoa is strongest on the retrohale. So far, it’s a cocoa bomb.

Second Third

The second third still holds all the notes from the first third except the woody note has become the dominate note. There is also a hint of a nice sweet spice on the finish. This cigar does have a long finish as well. The spices come on stronger as the cigar burns further. The cigar is also developing a creaminess that really mixes well with the sweet spice and cocoa.

Last Third

The last third is more sweet spice and creaminess than any other notes. The cocoa has really died down now and has taken a back seat. The retrohale has gotten nutty like cashews which I don’t detect much until I retrohale. This cigar ends with a bang.

Overall Impression

This is one of the best cigars available and this one didn’t disappoint. The cocoa, sweet spice, creaminess and nutty flavors are really over the top good. It’s truly a flavor bomb.

The burn was excellent and cigar let our voluminous smoke. The flavors are just amazing and I know why they have a counterfeiting problem. A cigar this good and with limited production has a demand that outstretches the supply. This is one of the best cigars I’ve ever had. Grab these next time you order cigars or at your local store. Trust me.

Had a few of these before and I like ’em a lot! Good review!

Nice… I vote Padron!!

This is an over rated and way over priced cigar compared to some nice Cubans you can get for half the money, in fact almost all of the Padron 64’s 26’s and especially the 80th are over priced. The only line they make which is reasonable for the cash are the regulars.

Hey Mitch,

I agree somewhat, but I don’t think the 1964s are overprice nor over rated. Its a quality cigar that I can get locally for $8-$12 for the normal sizes. I don’t think that is too bad.

I love the Padron 1964&1926 series in maduro, in fact today I enjoyed very much the 80th year series Torpedo maduro. I have several in my humidor and keep them close to my Hemmingway Signature maduro and my Cuban Cohiba Magico maduro from Cuba,and I enjoy it as wsll as my Partagas Lusitania also Cuban. The Padron family as the Fuente family make some of the best of the best smokes being very consistant in every aspect to gime us all the flavors and nuances of a very complex cigar. My hat goes off to Carlito Fuente as well as George Padron.

I just found this site tonight and I think that it is great. I certainly will be visiting this site quite often and will definitely throw in my opinion as I review cigars for a few publications and different manufactures and a lot of cigar stores across the country. I look forward to interacting with some of you smokers and share the experiance of a great pastime. I welcome this site and all of you with extra long ashes. Thank you, Bobbyg

It has a dark brown wrapper. It has a perfect size of 6 inches with 52 ring gauge. The draw is spot on and the burn unwavering.At the start it tastes sweet, with a hint of chocolate.it is not with much spice.After an inch or so the taste changes to woody. The last part is very nice.It is very subtle and coffee taste to complement.It is very costly. The 26 series much better than this one.

[…] Nice Tight Ash reviews the Superior Maduro […]

I just finished a Padron 4000. It was quite lovely the say the least. I can’t wait to smoke the 1964 anniversary maduro superior. You all will be the first to know when that will be. If you think $9 is to much to spend for such a flavorful smoke, stick with the cheaper brands. :)

I saw a lot of website but I think this one holds something special in it in it
