Padrón 1926 Serie

    Characteristics Very smooth and mellow, this all-Nicaraguan cigar is a classic of silken strength. Insider's Tip: All Padrón cigars are limited in production, but the 1926 Serie is the most elusive and worth the search. It was created in 2001 to mark the 75th birthday of Jose Padrón, patriarch of the cigar-making family. All tobaccos used are aged for five years. Both natural and maduro puros are made. Six shapes are offered; we’ll take any we can find, although the double banded 40th Anniversary in maduro, with its easy-to-clip head, is among our top choices. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
