Padron Anniversary Cigars: This series was created in celebration of Jose Padron’s 75th birthday. It's a complex smoke with perfect balance, showing flavors of chocolate, coffee and nuts, as well as some black cherry. The cigar has a finish so long it seems to never leave the palate. The 97 points it was awarded is the highest score given to a recent production cigar in many years. A cigar fit for the rich and famous could only make your Preakness experience all the more special.
