    Here is my conundrum. I can't imagine that there would be a better cigar than a Padron 1926 Anniversary Robusto Maduro. I would love to hear if anyone feels that there is a non-cuban, or even cuban for that matter that is better. I am partial to the Cuban Montecristo #2's, but the 1926 has a special place in my heart. Let me know what you guys feel is comparable. I will run out and buy it.

    Uhhhhhh, the word "Anniversary" is NOT used with respect to a Padron 1926 at all. The Padron Anniversary 1964 Naturals which are sometimes called "PAN" and the Padron Anniversary 1964 Maduros, which are sometimes called "PAM" use "anniversary" in their name. The Padron 1926 does not. ;)

    I prefer the Padron 1926 line over the 64s but there are many a Padron whore out there who see it the other way around (like RicMac25 :laugh: ).

    Ya like 'em even more than your Lars Tetens? :)

    I agree, the Padrón 1926 Serie cigars are excellent cigars; but like food, wine, beer, etc., what you're in the mood for varies from time to time. There is no "best", IMHO.

    Ah, thanks for the "reminder" about our semi-famous pseudo-cigar merchant Andrew :laugh: You woulda thought that a guy who runs a cigar shop would know that there's no such thing as a "Padron Anniversary 1926" :sign:

    2004 was their company's 40th Anniversary... (1964 + 40 = 2004)

    There are thousands of other smokers that refer to the 1926 as an Anniversary. Maybe my problem is that the band is never on for very long before I smoke them.

    Oh the joys of owning your own shop......

    I understood what he was saying. I was not correcting him I was just busting balls but there is a 1926 "anniversary" cigar.

    I would think one of the main goals and responsibilities would be to make sure you properly inform your customers. ;)

    Okay... but they are wrong. The proper name is Padrón 1926 Serie

    Actually it looks like it may be Padrón Serie 1926.

    Sorry Andrew just busting your balls. ;)

    Actually, this Padron whore now counts the Padron Serie 1926 no.9 Natural as his favorite Padron.
