Quick Smoke: Padrón Serie 1964 Exclusivo Maduro

25 Oct 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Padrón 1964 is one of the highest-rated and most acclaimed cigar lines for good reason. This square-press, five and a half inch by 50 ring gauge parejo has a dark wrapper and impressive construction. It’s very firm, but never to the detriment of the draw or burn. This stick features a complex blend of coffee beans, unsweetened chocolate, and earthy notes. The result is a classic, rich combination of balanced, medium- to full-bodied flavors.

Verdict = Buy.

    Yeah this cigar is incredible. I find it has more flavor than the 1926, perhaps due to the younger tobacco in these (3 years aging, instead of 5 for '26 I believe). If I could find a way to make enough money to smoke these on a regular basis, I'd be a pretty happy camper

    These are by far our favorite smokes, with the Montecristo Sublime EL 2008 a close second. Great brief review!

    I bought 5 of these in 2005 and smoked them on special occasions, whims and various drunks…..match met the last one as I type. The former is cause. An absolute gem of a smoke. Complex and smooth, like a good Whisky, a good poker hand or a fine automobile. However, much less trouble than a fine woman.

    I just bought one of these bad boys and can't wait to fire it up. On another note, Agewolf, I may just have to use that last quote. Just great

  1. Stogie Reviews: Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial 2009 - Wednesday, February 17, 2010

    […] I realize this may put me in the minority, but I happen to think the Maduro is even better than the highly acclaimed original Oliva Serie V. While smoking samples for this review, I found myself comparing the Maduro Especial to another favorite maduro of mine, the Padrón Serie 1964 Maduro. […]
