So the Fall weather is upon us once again here in the Appalachians. Where is Appalachia? Where men are men and women are too sometimes. Where a dental plan should be renamed a tooth plan. Where camo is always badass. The leaves are turning colors on the ground now. Folks are bundling up when they venture out and smoking cigars is becoming a frigid hobby. Speaking of frigid, have you ever accidentally put items in the refrigerator that don’t belong i.e. remote controls, sunglasses, ice cubes, nunchucks?

Hello fellow lovers of the leaf, I recently returned from overseas, just in time to attend a very special event. I had the distinct pleasure and privilege of meeting Jorge Padron, President of Padron Cigars and son of founder, Jose Padron. I missed the opportunity to meet him last year when he came through Baltimore because I was deployed again so I made sure my schedule didn’t conflict this time, though it was a close one. I had been very much looking forward to this event, not only because it was an opportunity to meet Mr. Padron, but also because he was bringing with him the new Padron Family Reserve No. 45. Ever since reading the posting about them by Jorge Armenteros in the Tobacconist University Forum, I have been anticipating the opportunity to enjoy what was certain to be a fine cigar.

This is the ugly date with a great personality of the cigar world. It's not much to look at, but the flavors are wonderful. Earthy with chocolate, coffee, and pepper undertones make this a steal at around $80 per box of 26. The medium bodied smoke can be had at any time of day. Especially pleasing paired with a Chocolate Stout or a Dr. Pepper. This is a must for my humidor. Highly recommended.

Thumbs Up!

The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series line was introduced in 1994 to commemorate the Padrón Cigar Company’s 30th anniversary. The line consists of ten sizes that are all available in sun-grown natural and maduro wrappers and all the sizes are box pressed. All tobacco used in these cigars is reportedly aged for four years. Due to the immense popularity of this line of cigars, it has become one of the most counterfeited non-Cuban cigars in the world. To help protect their brand and their customers Padrón introduced a few security measures to make counterfeiting more difficult. They added a specially designed double band featuring an individually numbered guarantee label. The back side of the labels is also printed.

This is an exclusive from Holt’s to celebrate their 110th Anniversary (really?). Here’s a blurb from their site:

To celebrate Holt’s 110th year of business our good friends the Padrons decided to blend a brand new, extra-special cigar exclusively for our customers: The Padron Legacy. Not only is this a momentous release due to the fact the Padron’s rarely produce anything new, but also because the cigar itself is spectacular. An incredibly well-aged blend of all Nicaraguan tobaccos in this gem, providing it with a complex, but balanced, full-bodied flavor boasting layers of earth and leather interwoven with nuts and spices, culminating in a smooth, chocolaty finish.

Now normally I buy local, but this LE I could not resist!

There’s a seemingly endless debate as to whether this cigar is superior to its sister 1926 line of stogies. For comparison, I smoked both on the same afternoon. Unfortunately, the pure pleasure I experienced with a ’26 #2 maduro did not spill over into this smoke. To be fair, I lit another to give a second shot a week later... it missed the mark again.

Please welcome Lee who just joined our team of authors. He kicks off with a review of this delicious Padron 1926.

Quite simply, this is the finest cigar I have smoked to date. Pre-smoke, my thoughts were it’s one of those deals where reality has to depart from hype. Well, I was mistaken, to say the least.

First things first. I’d like to thank Cigar Inspector and Tex Cigars for this fine smoke. I won a contest and this was included in the package. As a meager thank you, I’ve decided to do a review on each cigar I received. Now let’s cut to the chase. The envelope please. Drum roll please. And the winner is: Padron Serie 1926 #6 Natural. The 1926 line premiered in 2002 commemorating the birth year of Jose O. Padron. All tobaccos used in the cigar have been aged five years. Production is limited to 100,000 cigars a year.
