    The "Little Hammer" is the Anniversary 45 year.... that is the one that has gotten the highest accolades and best reviews... can't say I have had it myself, but it is supposed to be a [email protected] fine stick.

  • I've had the Family Reserve 44, 45 & 46. They were all fantastic, but I didn't think any of them were as good as the 80th Anniversary. If they have the 80th, I'd go that route.

    I recently had my first regular 1926 (I think the size was #9) and I was blown away. It was the only cigar I've ever had that gave the 80th a run for its money.

    i bought a box of the 45's back in 2009 and just recently smoked one couple weeks ago, great stick. But IMO the Padro 1926 80th is still a better smoke.

    The 85th just hit the streets this week I think. This year the Family reserve is called the 85th in honor of Jose O Padron's 85th Birthday, rather than calling it the 47th Family Reserve. Personally, I think the 45th Maduro is the best Padron cigar I've had. I like the 1926 80th a lot though. I tend to prefer Padron naturals over their maduros, and I think the 80th Natural fits into that.

    my box should be here soon, I have the 46 FR maddy. I really like that one. I'm looking forward to the 85th. as for the OP, the FR 45 is a bit strong so if you like stronger cigars then go for that, the 26 is milder than the 45th.

    I might need a calculator to keep up with all these numbers.
