Padron 1964 Anniversary Diplomatico Maduro- #4 Cigar of 2013!

I absolutely have to write about the following cigar as this line is easily one of my personal  favorite cigars! I can not pass on an opportunity to smoke a Padron 1964 Anniversary Diplomatico Maduro- and for good reason! Cigar Aficionado has this ranked as their #4 cigar of the year with this to say:

"The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series line debuted in 1994 to celebrate 30 years of Padrón cigars. It was a hit from the beginning, and nearly 20 years after its launch it remains one of the most popular and highly rated cigar lines on the market. The Diplomatico is the largest of the Anniversary Series cigars, save for the rarely seen “A.” In maduro wrapper, it’s a dark, box-pressed smoke with a perfect draw that layers the palate with copious amounts of complex flavors including nuts and toast, with a sweet hint of raisin on the finish."

Padron was the original Nicaraguan Cigar producers and their Anniversary and Family Reserve lines are nothing short of masterpieces. The demand is so great; they instituted a cap on the number of cigars they produce each year to ensure the hands of time are not rushed and that careful attention is paid to each cigar coming off the rolling tables. Every year Padron is highly ranked on top 25 Cigars due to their commitment to quality, flavor, and construction.

A must have for any cigar enthusiast- in fact I am going to smoke one right now as my mouth is watering as I am writing this.

Happy smoking my friends!
