Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Principe Maduro

If you like small cigars or Nicaraguan Puros, the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Principe Maduro could be just what the doctor ordered. This compact, quick-smoking stick was released in 1994 to celebrate Padron's 30th Anniversary. The 1964 Anniversary Series is no stranger to high ratings, so hopefully it's good enough to earn another one here.

The 1964 Anniversary Series Principe measures 4 ½ x 46. Padron offers the line in several other sizes: the 5 ½ x 50 Exclusivo, the 6 x 42 Corona, the 6 x 54 Imperial, the 6 x 52 Torpedo, the 6 ½ x 46 Monarca, the 6 ½ x 42 Superior, the oddly-shaped 6 7/8 x 52 x 42 Pyramide, the 7 x 50 Diplomatico, and the humongous 8 ¼ x 50 “A.” Like others in the series, the Principe is a Nicaraguan Puro, containing Nicaraguan Sun Grown Habano tobacco in its filler, binder, and wrapper. All of the tobacco used has also been aged. While this review will focus on the Maduro version of the Principe, the cigar also comes in a Natural version. Strength-wise, the Principe is said to be medium to full-bodied.

Right off the bat, the Principe's small size is highly noticeable. Just by looking at it, you can guess that it's not a cigar meant to be smoked at a marathon pace. It also has a neat box-pressed shape. The Maduro wrapper is dark and oily, with very few veins that are visible. The cigar appears to be smooth overall with solid construction. To the touch, the Principe is firm and has no soft spots from top to bottom. The decorative band is a nice touch, and it showcases the Padron name and the 1964 Anniversary Series moniker in elegant font. The gold and red wine colors on the band mesh nicely with the dark wrapper. Before lighting, there's a strong coffee aroma. The cold taste, meanwhile, is peppery.

When it comes to the Principe's burn, you couldn't ask for a smoother experience. The burn is razor sharp. No re-lighting or touch-ups are required, which allows you to really enjoy the great flavors, which we will get to in a moment. The draw is easy, and solid white ash forms. It's a quick smoke that lasts for around 45 minutes.
