Padron Anniversary Review – Ratings

Well here we go with another cigar review, and this time I’m not screwing around I’m going straight to the top with a Padron Anniversary review and rating, so prepare yourself for a roller-coaster ride of Padron cigar awesomeness. This weeks topic is the Padron Anniversary cigar, or also known as the almighty Padron Anniversario. There has been tons of great cigar releases this year in 2012 as usual, but I’m still leaning towards the Padron Anniversary cigar line up including the Family Reserve. The Padron Anniversary 1964, 1926, Family Reserve cigar blows away anything out there right now – bottom line. The all new Padron 1964 No.4 6×60 that was released in September of 2012 will be the new top dog of the cigar world this year;  I guarantee it.

6 easy steps why the Padron Anniversary cigars are the best:

Padron 80th Cigars Are Awesome

#1  The Padrón cigar company is 100% family owned and operated.

The Padrón family has always had 100% quality controlled hands-on  from the seeding and growing of the Nicaraguan tobacco to the final product on the shelves. It’s not a big deal right? You are wrong if you think that. To get a  premium cigar on the shelf at your local cigar store is estimated by some to take 5+ years. From planting the tobacco seeds in the ground to the farming production along with the cigar aging process takes along time, and then to get the cigars on the shelf at a reasonable price is almost impossible. Notice I skipped out on the blending, and managing a cigar factory with 100 + employees in a 3rd world Country – I just don’t have time or the patients to write about that, and nor do I want to.

#2 There are no middlemen :

The Padrón Family owns and operates 100% of everything that goes into that beautiful Padron Anniversary cigar. There are only a handful of cigar companies that are 100% family owned today. Most cigar brands today are distributed by middlemen which have zero quality control over the cigar process meaning their cigars might be good now, but sooner than later those same middlemen will distribute a bad batch to the cigar stores which ultimately ends up killing their brand in the long run. The cigar business is not a 100 meter dash it’s a marathon. Slow and steady is the winning formula as the Padrón’s have proved that over the long and hard years as they have been in business since the mid 60’s .

 

#3 There is no such thing as a bad Padrón cigar: 

The Padrón’s have a winning thoroughbred record from the $5 Padron Londres to the $25 Padron Family Reserve 45 maduro which received the #1 cigar in the world in 2008 by Cigar Aficionado.  All of the Padron cigars have received high recognition in every cigar magazine, and cigar review sites across the world, so don’t take my word for it just google it yourself.

4# Pepsi Challenge:

I absolutely guarantee if you put any of the Padron Anniversary cigars against any cigar out there right now it will smoke the competition period. Stop believing all the B.S.  hype on websites. There is no way that a Vegas 5, Rocky Patel, Don Nobody,or Famous knockoff, etc.. are  in the same league, and if you don’t think so then stop reading this right now.

 

 

 

#5 You’re not changing my mind about your .75 cent bundle cigar :

I get it, you use coupons at yard sales, and you’re all about driving a extra hour to save .35 cents on a cigar – good for you. All the bundles and  sampler packs are not even in the same league as any of the Padrón cigars, so if you’re one of those,” annoying smoke anything on deal guy” then do all of us  a favor smoke Phillie blunts; and maybe you will die quicker.

#6 Want proof here you go:

Below are the ratings on the Padron cigar portfolio.
