Padron 1926 80th Anniversary (Saturday Supplemental)

Wow, can you believe it’s been over a month since I did one of these weekend video reviews? Where does the time go? Oh yeah, work and IPCPR!

Speaking of IPCPR, you’re probably thinking I picked up this high-MSRP smoke at the show. Ah, but you’re wrong. As I mention in the video, the Padron booth was one of our unfortunate oversights at the show. The one time we tried to work our way into their booth, it was a little overcrowded so we passed it up with the intention of coming back. Well, that didn’t happen. (At least not while I was at the show.) Instead, this cigar review comes to you because of the incredible charity of Rene (a.k.a. Solid) a friend (dare I say “fan”?) of the Stogie Review. In my email conversations with him, I can say that his taste in fine cigars is only eclipsed by his generosity.

Before we get into the video, I do need to apologize to Solid for keeping him waiting so long for this review. As this is not a cigar I’d light up unless I’m sure I’ll be able to sit and enjoy it at a nice leisure pace. Unfortunately, it took me a quite a while to find a deserving chunk of time to dedicate to it. Thanks for the cigar! Now let’s check it out!

  1. Great review as always!

    I’ve got one of these in my box, and you have made it even harder for me to leave it alone. Now every time I open my humidor I’ll hear a little voice in my head….

    smoke it….. smoke it….

  2. Wonderful job as usual, but this is definitely out of my price range! Maybe I can con my girlfriend into getting one for my birthday next month?? (NOT!)
    If your going to steal a closing statement, you should steal Steve Irwins “CROCS RULE”, as I’m sure Jerry would appreciate it! LOL

  3. I’m glad you enjoyed it! Aside from the price, Padron truly makes exceptional cigars! This a rare treat that should be experienced by all cigar enthusiasts at least once, along with a few others like a Fuente Opus X, and a Cuban Cohiba Siglo VI.

  4. Yeah man,

    This is an exceptional cigar. A little rich for my blood, but fantastic. We reviewed one on our show a few episodes ago.

  5. Thanks Rich,
    I definitely hear ya. I’m very, very tempted to buy another today when I head out to do some errands. I’m already working out the rationalization in my head. (Parents were mean to me as a kid, Solid made me do it… Hmmm… my excuses still need some work.)

    Rocky,
    Good idea- talk people into buying it for you. Wanna smoke an 80th? Be prepared to tell everyone you know it’s your absolute favorite cigar. Wife/Parents/Friends ask you for a Christmas wish list? Hand her back a slip of Paper with Padron 80th written on it. LOL

    Thanks for the cigar Solid, you’re the man!

    Nate,
    I’ll have to check that review out. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody say anything bad about this smoke. (Well, except me- I did point out the wrapper flaws. LOL)

  6. Solid, can I be your friend too? πŸ˜€

    Very nice gift! Good review Brian. While I would like to agree with Solid on the point of trying these expensive sticks at least once, I just can’t see myself dishing out the cash for ’em.

  7. Sure, you can be my friend! I would say a responsible person would not spend over $30.00 bucks for a single cigar. Hey we all have priorties! Sometimes you just have to treat yourself, so an occasional treat won’t break the bank.

  8. Woohoo! Solid is my friend! πŸ˜‰

    I can see splurging once in a great while, but can anyone really say that this cigar is 2-3 times as good as a great $10-$15 smoke?

    I can see where this would make a great gift but no way I’m buying one for myself.

  9. You can’t go wrong with this cigar! Great descriptive review. I think you’d like the 40th anniversary as well. Especially considering the price difference between the two. You’ll have to check our last review for the Padron cigar porn section πŸ˜‰

  10. My Son got me hooked on the 80th. He went to my favorite cigar shop and asked what the favorite cigar was without consideration of cost. now I look forward to my birthday and Christmas, I now get four sticks a year and then I hoard them until I have perfect conditions. Its just my favorite cigar, my guilty pleasure. Great job on the review. Its 2 months until my birthday and I’m down to one 80th in my humidor. Think that I’ll go look at it..

  11. These Padron 1964 and 1926 Series are just incredible. Worth every penny. I buy them by the box so I can age them and see how they improve with time. 1964 Anniversary “A”, 1926 40th Anniversary, 80 Yr Maduro, all fantastic. Consistent too.
