I’d like to extend my personal gratitude to Abe “Ming” Dababneh from Smoke Inn Cigars in Florida for sending me the newest installation from his 15th Anniversary Collection. If you remember correctly the first installation was the Tatuaje Anarchy. Abe is a huge supporter of us non-traditional media folks and its awesome that he values our opinions enough to send us samples. Thanks Abe. The Padron 1964 Anniversary SI-15 (Maduro) is the same blend as the usual PAM64 but in a unique size. Historically I’ve not been a fan of the 6×60 size. I mean, I get that they sell very well and that many consumers see the value in them but for me, I’m always left feeling awkwardly puzzelled and lost.
Video Note: Gracie makes a special appearance…everyone say “awe”.
If the Padron 1964 Anniversary SI-15 (Natural) hit a homerun then this Maduro version hits a grand slam! Talk about a flavor bomb! A few hours have past since I recorded the review and I swear I can still taste those cocoa flavors. The Padron 1964 Anniversary SI-15 (Maduro) is lights out an amazing cigar. Again, the flavors came through loud and clear even in the airy 6×60 size. The cocoa flavors were explosive and were complimented by a unique variety of woodsy and nutty flavors. The rustic looking wrapper won’t any beauty awards but man, that flavor profile is killer sharp. While I encourage you to try both the Natural and Maduro, if I have to pick one…Maduro all the way.
The Padron 1964 Anniversary SI-15 (Natural/Maduro) will available starting April 15, 2011. They will be sold as singles, five packs and boxes. According to Abe this will be even more limited than the Tatuaje Anarchy.
