The Padron Anniversary 1964 Imperial is a well-packed, semi-pressed, 54-ring Toro with a lush Maduro wrapper. Loaded with Padron's signature earthiness laced with cocoa, coffee bean, and hazelnut flavors, the smoke is full-bodied, complex, and creamy-smooth with a sweet aroma. Try 5 first!
Doesn't get much better....unless a 1926 Maduro
oh my, what a smoke. the most smooth cigar i have ever had the pleasure of smokng. mild to the very end, a decent burn but could be better. draw was so easy.
Not a great cigar... The draw was too tight and it burned a little uneven. I enjoy the CAO Cameroons much more and they cost about 1/3 less. These have a hint of cocoa, yes, but there is also some floral notes I don't care for. I think it needs a little ligero leaf to give it some kick. It needs more character. I feel this cigar is way too mild and lacks complexity for such a "super premium."
I smoked a hard-to-find Padron 1964 robusto. It tasted mostly like straight tobacco with just a hint of spice at the end. I cannot understand why these are so unbelievably overrated. I'll spend my $14 on another brand next time.
