For smoking purists, the defining moment when Padrón went from being a small but generally unremarkable player in the cigar trade to an elite brand came in 1994 when the firm released this groundbreaking series, the 1964 Anniversary line. Created to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the company’s founding, this series was immediately lauded upon its introduction and marked the beginning of a new era for Padrón that saw the brand enter the top ranks of the industry. Since then, the company hasn’t looked back.
This edition of the line — the Padrón 1964 Anniversary Presidente in a Natural wrapper — is a unique member of the 1964 family due to its tubo packaging. Each stick comes in a square-shaped aluminum tube, with 15 tubes to a box. Along with the Soberano vitola, which is an inch shorter than the Presidente, these are the only tubo vitolas in the Anniversary series, and only the third set of tubo smokes that Padrón has produced.
Golden-hued, medium-bodied and medium-strength, these premium, puro Nicaraguan sticks are comprised exclusively of select tobaccos that have been aged for no less than four years. Classic, refined and smooth, their complex flavors incorporate essences of roasted peanuts, espresso, cedar and cocoa, with a pinch of white pepper and a toasty cinnamon finish.
Let there be no debate — this Presidente is one of the all-time greats. Pick up a box of the Presidente Naturals today, and support the values of exceptional cigar-making.
